Since all my crafting is technically portable this month, here's a peek at a new flower intial I'm embroidering.
So far I've added magnolias, a shasta daisy, a rosebud, foxglove and some gypsophilla.
Starting is the hardest - now I just have to keep going until the lines are all covered.

portable crafting scottish style

Still managing some portable crafting moments on vacation. I packed a mixture of projects, all of which are portable at certain stages, and then bought a needle felting kit from McAree's in Stirling.

I don't think a sharp pointy stabby craft is entirely portable but I'm having a lot of fun with it.
a little try out
