UKS Monthly house challenge

So riding on the success of coming 2nd in April I decided to have another go this month. The brief being a favourite place and sewing. One of my favourite places to be is The Norfolk Coast, as soon as I cross over the border from Suffolk to Norfolk I can feel myself start to relax and the icing on the cake is being by the sea. Doesn't matter to me if it's warm and sunny or wild and windy I just love being there.

So I dusted off my sewing machine and let me tell you I am pretty clueless when it comes to machine sewing (probably because my Mum is fantastic so why would I bother LOL) finally managed to produce a patchwork frame for the photo then used a temple to doodle the swirls which I then spent three days stitching. Nearly gave up as it was hurting my hands so much but am really pleased I persevered with it.

Now not so good news, went to hospital Tuesday and need surgery to my toe and my knee replaced, I'm on the list for my knee and it should be 12 to 16 weeks. So not happy about it!
