I like to sit and watch telly at about 9pm for an hour before going to bed. I find it relaxing, but I need something to do with my hands! A bit of crotcheting, knitting or hand stitchery is best. Here’s my latest ‘in front of the tv’ crafting, a Nancy Nicholson embroidery. I fell in love with her drawings and embroideries as soon as I saw them. This ‘love birds’ picture comes preprinted on good quality linen, needle and threads, with stitch instructions printed around the edge of the picture. It all comes packed in a sweet little fabric bag with more preprinted stitchery! Now what to do with it? Shall I make it into a table runner, or a cushion?
Now that autumn is just around the corner and the weather is getting cooler, I will finish my granny square crotchet blanket. Inspired by Lucy at Attic24, I started crotcheting squares in all sorts of rainbow colours. Now I have enough to make a 9 x 9 blanket. I have tried laying them out in a random fashion, but have to say I much prefer a more organised rainbow pattern!
Do you have a favourite craft to do in front of the television?
