I had been feeling a little uncreative lately, teaching takes a lot of creativity and energy! So I decided I wanted to return to a craft I can do even if all I feel like doing is relaxing in front of the television.
With this in mind, I decided to complete a cross-stitch I began literally years ago, which I bought from Swonderful in Wellington.
I orignally bought the cross-stitch for a long train trip and it's been with me to a lot of destinations (even Japan!) but I never seemed to complete it whislt on holiday.
I really loved the image, which was designed but the New Zealand Cupcake Queen, so I decided it was now or never - time to finish the naked martini glass lady cross-stitch.
Here's my completed work - I am so happy with it - especially because it's cross-stitched on black fabric which looks awesome but can be hard to stitch.
