Information here's the introduction and here's more information.
Sewing by hand gives me peace of mind, makes me ponder over things, not fret, but ponder.
It's reassuring, too: you have an almost instant result when you've make something small.
I also love the portability of it: in the back of the garden, in front of the telly, or on holiday: you can take it anywhere.
So to me it's about relaxing, having fun, laughing about a silly or rude joke (what else!) and perfecting skills. So next time this'll look even better:
And then yesterday as the mister (as Kirsty says) and I had a cup of coffee, he looked out into the garden and saw this:
O, I know, form here you have to look really hard, but perhaps you can enlarge the photo by clicking on it? And there on our own dike (leftovers from digging the pond) ....
He's looking left, turning his head away from us.
Yes, can you see him?
Well anyway, WE were exited: deer in our own garden!
Here in the Netherlands there are 17 (?) million people living together on a bit of land where the seawater was pumped out. Nature is MADE here, because there's nothing left of it's own accord.
So when we made our own bit of nature, we planted a small clump of trees right behind this dike. So that deer could wander from the cornfields straight into our garden where they would have shelter.
Could this one be hunting for new territory, perhaps?
Have a great week!
