I'm a huge Wimbledon fan and have been since I was child. I was one of those whose kids who would hit a ball against a wall and pretend I was competing in the Women's final on Centre Court. Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova would try their best but would never take the title.
During Wimbledon fortnight normal life would be put on hold. Everything had to be done before the TV coverage started at 11.30am and meals would always be quick and easy so not to miss too much of the action stuck in the kitchen.
Shortly after I came home from London I decided to make a thank you card for the staff at the King Edward hospital. Whilst I could have simply bought a card I thought it would mean more if I made it myself (somehow I don't think they would get many handmade cards.....).
Under the supervision of Mr Gertie I went into my workroom and gathered together everything I needed to make the cross stitch card.
Normally a card like this wouldn't take very long to do. However because of the tennis it took me the whole two weeks !!!! I'd like to think it was worth the wait (and worth the wait for a British winner. Well done Andy).
PS why not pop over to Handmade Monday to see what other fellow craft bloggers have been up to.
