WOYWW #410 - Painting!

So my husband got sick of all my flower things in his cable tie tube so he made this for them.

I laughed and said I'd have to paint it!

Woke early and decided to do just that!


It started life a piece of cardboard tube hot glued to a wall tile.











Still doing daily embroidery too. Weekly update here. I even stretched and finished my colour wheel embroidery so now have my large hoop to work with, much better.

Happy WOYWW Everyone.

What a lovely hubby to make you a vase for your flowers, they will look fabulous when the paint is dry.
You really have got stuck into the embroidery, that colour wheel is fantastic.

Well, it may just be a cardboard tube glued to a tile but it's perfect for the job of holding your beautiful flowers!! And I still adore that embroidery of yours, it's soooo gorgeous!

Happy WOYWW. Clever use of cardboard tube and tile. Your embroidery is just fabulous. I used to do a lot of cross stitching and would like to have a good at 'proper' embroidery. I bought myself a magazine last year, which I am keeping until my credit card debt is paid off and I can treat myself to some threads. Ali x #22

Hi BJ, that's a great recycling job and I like the colour you've painted it. Enjoying watching your embroidery grow. I'm still working on my 'sampler' and just bought more embroidery threads today - I've caught the bug too :) Hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend. Elizabeth x #27
