Four Inch Rainbows

For the Wild Olive stitch swap, I had to buy a 4" embroidery frame.  I found these really cute ones, in a set of 3.  Also, I couldn't pass up the oppertunity to get ones with such adorable hooks!!

I figured it would be pretty easy to find a way how to use them, at least that's what I thought.

Cut to a week ago, when I was bored and trying to figure out what to do with it.  I had this cute idea based off something I'd seen - you know those cute embroideries which are French knots outlining a word?  I was wanting to do something like that, and maybe I eventually will, it just didn't work for this frame.  Either that or the font I was using didn't fit it well enough.  I do intend to try that sometime, just not for the moment.

I also knew I needed some French knot practice, so a-Google'ing I went.  My favourite?  Rainbow French knots, of course.  I thought it'd be easy to replicate.  So I did.

It was so easy!  I just divided it up into 6, picked my colours, turned on Gossip Girl, and stitched away.

Turns out French knots are super easy now.  Also I have an adorable embroidery sitting on the hook above my bed.  I'm loving the bright colours, on a plain white wall it's so bright and cheerful!

Wish I could remember what DMC colours I used so I could share them.

Until next time,

23 before 23: 6 month update!

Back in August I posted about 23 things that I wanted to achieve before I hit 23 next year (read about it here). Since we're at the 6 month mark, I thought an update was in store!

Writing this post and reading over my list I'm realising how much I've got to achieve - school holidays now, time to get busy! So far I've achieved...

12. Spend a day at the beach
Check! Was a gorgeous day and both myself and my boyfriend came back without being completely roasted. Considering how pale we both are, that was a surprise.

19. Find a signature makeup look
It only occurred to me the other day that I'd done this - I <3 my winged liner and bright lip.

20. Read 2 "classic" novels
Done and done!
Clearly I've gotten lazy with my book reviewing, haha. I've since read The Great Gatsby, Little Women and am currently marathoning my way through Anna Karenina.

I've noticed it just seems like I'm not a Jane Austen fan but have enjoyed all of the others that I've re…
