Some recent embroideries

Hello everyone! I told you exciting things were happening, didn't I? What could be more exciting than embroidery?

I've started my new course, and while my schedule isn't very full, it's very intense. Lectures or tutorials all week in a brand new subject, and meeting and chatting with people every day! The courses are fascinating and the people are excellent, but it's quite the transition for me to go from spending most of my time with Allan, or alone. Combined with a few miles of walking to and from the University and my nightly pilates, I'm ending up pretty exhausted by the end of the day.

I've still had time to do some embroidery, of course. Nothing helps me relax at the end of the day like sitting down with a big cup of tea, an episode of the Great British Bake Off, and some crafting. I've been crocheting like mad too, more of the Maybelle flowers shown in the last entry; I've just started finishing these into squares to join together. I've also recently bought some tiny beads, and I've been doing some experimenting with beaded embroidery. I've got down the basic technique, but I'm feeling very uninspired with how to use these little gems!

One more exciting thing to mention - I ordered business cards! They'll be coming in the next few days, and I'm so excited to show them to you all! Just like someone with a real job, eh? Talk to you again soon!
