lant roundup

Hello, I thought I'd do a quick LANT roundup to finish off the year.  All of the entries this time are from me!

Firstly, I tried  a take on the cathedral windows technique and loved it.  Follow that link to see the tutorial for the block.  I want to try traditional cathedral windows sometime soon.

I also had a go at Sashiko.  If you like hand embroidery, you'll love this technique.

And last up was chicken scratch, another hand embroidery technique - very quick, very simple, very effective.

I did have an entry on spinning from Dosie Rosie but she seems to have removed the post.
If you fancy making learning something new your resolution next year, you can join in with the LANT linky here and if you need inspiration, see my Crafts List.

I do love those designs and you know what would look awesome? If the centers were done with floss, but the honeycomb design done with beads!
