I said I had been thinking about the edge of my latest piece and here is the result of all that brain energy, chinese knots. I haven't made any of these for such a long time that I had to read my book again!I don't have nearly enough of them yet so thankfuly I found some more piping cord in my stash and that is on the to do list for tommorrow. The actual embroidered piece is just about ready for damp stretching, a little more work tonight and another job for the morning. I really need to get out now, it is my son's birthday on thursday and I don't even have a card for him yet. There is also Swedish money to order......
What a lovely suprise I got on friday. Francesca from the delightful blog mrs elliot books gave me this award. I now have to tell you seven things I love and pass this on to seven other bloggers. Now I could list seven people, husband, kids etc etc but that would probably be considered cheating and any way it goes without saying. So here goes,
1.I love being at home. I would never rather be anywhere else.
2.I love winter, dark, cold evenings all snug and warm at home. Cold crisp days.
3.I love the sea. I was born and brought up on the west coast of England, now I am land locked yet wherever I go if there is a beach I am drawn to it and could sit and stare at the sea for hours.
4.I love the company of children. Not just my own but nieces, nephews, students at school. They have such a refreshing outlook on things and are full of hope and optimism.
5.I love folding, unfolding and folding again my vintage tablecloths.
6.I love the connections I have made with people through this blog, some very special friendships.
7.I love my little goldfish, no, I adore my little goldfish. I have such a desire to hug him, alas, I can't.Now I have to pass this on. I really don't like this bit, afraid of offending and all that so you can all consider yourself tagged and I will pick a few specific blogs, those I don't think I have given an award to before.
