The pages lured me with their candy colours and simple instructions. Before I knew it, I was working on a sampler. The Librarians felt my pain when someone else reserved it and I couldn’t renew it “just one more time”.
The sampler is almost finished and I’m eyeing up some new projects. I even managed to get the book back just for those last stitches.
My mum was quietly impressed. She’s and embroidery fan from way back. If I keep it up she might even let me near her Danish sewing books. For now, she’s passed me this.
It’s like a box of chocolates, only better.
