We are working with paper in embroidery school, a slight diversion from our sampling with cloth and thread. There is thread, there are even little snippets of cloth but paper surfaces are the main focus of this exercise. We've introduced tiny bits of silver too.......a completely different surface to paper and cloth. This will be a slow burner, we are back to embroidery on cloth in the next lesson. There's nothing wrong with having a little paper distraction piece lurking in the background though.
A few of you have asked about these boxes from yesterday.
They are from Ted Baker. I have only ever seen them at Christmas and they come filled with shower gel, hand lotion, lip balm and other toiletries. The pink one was purchased half price in this years post Christmas sale, the other one was bought half price last year. In all honesty I buy them purely for the box. I do use the products but they are stacking up! I won't need to buy any shower gel for quite some time.
