O.K. who put the lights out??? I swear it's like the middle of the night here. I love winter it's my favourite season, grumpy in heat and all that but boy...please can we have some sun, only for half an hour, just long enough for me to take pictures...please!! Right, moaning over, off my chest....last night I basted more stitched paper to my wedding piece and embroidered around 6 more cutwork hearts with lace inserts. I should mention that the paper will look quite different once I have finished the surface stitching. I am going to add lots of french knots and those other round things that I embroider whose name eludes me.
I also managed to make a start on the edge of one of my pile of unfinished pieces. I am quite excited about these actually, they were languishing in one of those black artist folio things when I came across them during my housework marathon on friday. I made them for a show I did once, more as samples but I think with a little extra work they will be more appealing to the buying masses...whoever they are.
My printer is working overtime too, I seem to be constantly feeding it with paper. I'm not complaining at all it's just that it's in a different room to my ''comfy'' chair so I have to keep getting up and checking it...good for the knees I suppose, (or maybe not) It's not even a route that takes me past the kettle, if it was I could kill two birds with one stone. Don't let anyone ever tell you that us stay at homers lead sedentary lives!! I walk miles putting my kettle on...virtually worn a track in my carpet.
Sorry to let you down too but today I MUST iron...the pile is too high. Perhaps it is sunny outside after all and it's the pile of ironing blocking out the light....I will let you know in four hours when I've done it all........
