I gathered all these little pieces together last night, a counting excercise. Including the hexagon pieces that I showed you yesterday I had twenty three.....I now have twenty seven. Last night I made four more, not shown here and tonight I will make the other three. Then I will have reached the magical thirty. Just to remind you, these are for little embroidery sketchbooks. I had been asked for some recently so I've got those covered and a couple spare to go in the shop. Not yet though, there's still a lot of paper cutting to do.
Yesterday I parceled up the wedding favours and embroidered wedding cloth to send them off to their new home. I get so anxious about that . Putting anything precious in the hands of others to travel miles is a very worrying thing, or maybe that's just me. I feel like I'm sending my kids off on their own for the first time, not much sleep going on for the first night they are away. Then there is the worry of ''will they like it'' and I probably worry more about that then anything. So you can imagine how relieved I was this morning when I had an e-mail to say firstly that they had arrived already!!! That's a first and secondly that the lovely Adele is delighted with them all, more than happy infact. Phew!!!
Now I have to say that I am teetering, yes, positively teetering on the brink of insanity.....the digging outside the front door has resumed...they are driving me mad. Apart from the fact that my other half is in bed after a night shift the constant drilling and banging is really beginning to grate on my every fibre. Have you ever seen the film ''Falling Down'' with Michael Douglas? Basically he completely loses it in a similar situation...well I am fast becoming him.....watch this space...
I live on a ''one way'' street for traffic. I came home from my clothes hunting expedition this morning, (I got something too by the way, relief) and they had CLOSED THE ENTRANCE TO MY STREET. No warning, no diversion...so I had to drive all the way round to the other end and drive up the street the wrong way. I then parked up, came in and put the kettle on and had a thought...what if a policeman sees my car parked the wrong way on a one way street???? so off I went again and turned it round so it is now facing the right way. Sorry about the rant but I do feel better for it...thankyou.
