I'll soon be going to over to England for two whole weeks while my mum has her knee operation
so I thought I'd take a little sewing project with me to while away the time.
I bought this kit when I was on a visit to the Waterways Museum, here at Ellesmere Port. It's a bookmark and the 'Spider Web' stitch was traditionally used for making the canal boatman's belt.
I chose to buy the bookmark kit because the kit for the belt looked a bit ambitious to me.
I'll just have to make do with stitching this bookmark instead. It's not as creative a project as I would usually undertake but sometimes it's good to have something small to just pick up and do.
In the kit there is a sample square to make before I move on to the serious stuff.
Time to thread the needle.
