Handmade Monday: Daisy Diary Cover

Grrr.  I'm having major Sunday night blues at the moment.  Tomorrow, I'd love to stay at home, cuddle up on the sofa and work on a few more rows of my ripple blanket.  Still, Sunday night blues are the sign a of a good weekend, right?

I've had a lovely time seeing friends, going for a big long walk, making apple crumble and tomato and lentil soup and heading into London for dinner on Saturday...somehow I wonder how I ever have time for work...

I've also finished embroidering this removable daisy diary cover that I made for Emma's #craftblogclub challenge. It's cool isn't it?

It's actually the first time I've used an embroidery hoop and I loved working with it.  I'm going to be posting a tutorial next weekend so stay tuned for that.

In the meantime, I'm going to be hopping over to Handmade Monday to look at what everyone else has been making this weekend.

Who else has been making a notebook cover for #craftblogclub?
