My talented daughter!

As well as being exceptionally beautiful (I know I am her Mum but here is a pic taken when we went out to celebrate her A levels this week and she really is!) Ellie is a fantastic stitcher so I thought I would show you a couple of her recent finishes.

She has been stitching since she was about 8 and did Textiles and Art at GCSE and Art at A level so has always been creative. Her dream (as well as getting a job in the heritage industry) is to one day open her own craft and tea shop as she also loves baking. I plan to make regular visits there to run workshops for her and help her buy stock!

She has been doing a lot of stitching this summer as a way of relaxing after she finished her A levels and she has just completed this beautiful baby card for my cousin and his wife for their first baby Anna Mae.

She has also just made herself a needle keep to take to University. Her name spelt backwards is Nelle Frog and she collects frogs of all kinds so her choice of motif was very appropriate!

The needle keep is of her own design – the needles are threaded through the back.

I am very, very proud of her. Not only is she clever, very hardworking, kind, appreciative  and helpful (and the most sensible 18 year old around!) but she has coped really well with a difficult couple of years and done brilliantly to achieve what she has. I wish you every success in the future sweetie – you really deserve it and I hope you have the time of your life at University!
