Handicrafts are a good skill to pick up. Kids play with too much tech

Hand sewing during ME time this morning. I love the effect of roses on satin. Working on some project for a charitable group.

That's very pretty! I'm not good at pretty things - no patience!

I've just bought a no. of new items of clothing for my daughters and taught one of them how to do minor alterations - taking up hems, sewing in the waist, sewing buttons. That's an important life skill for those who can't fit off-the-rack clothes exactly.

I also recently made a light sleeping bag for my husband.

I wish I have the time and patience in such things. Perhaps a few years later when am more settled and hope my eyesight still permits to do sewing

Thanks ladies. This was done only after much procrastination and when I finally found a block of undisturbed time. Notice the white rose on the front piece? It's DIY using satin ribbon.

I am taking up a hand embroidery class next month. I think it's just going to be lovely. :please:

Embroidery is pretty fun. All you need is to learn some basic stitches and you can start creating your own designs too. Previously I did embroidery on shoes for my cousin :D
