Phew, what a few days....everything seems as if it has been upside down and back to front. I have been so busy on the ''domestic'' front which is quite hard when the last thing you are is a goddess in that department. I have had a wobble with my work...doubt, uncertainty, desire to pack it all in and throw it in the bin....and on top of it all a massive collapse of blogger which has driven me almost to distraction. A result of that is that there are lots of comments missing from here. First of all if you commented on my give away it may not be there any more, have a look and if it's gone and you care...that's quite important, whether you care or not!! and if it's not there leave another one. Also, I have lost every comment that I had on friday from my magazine post, again, you don't get anything from this I know but if you could maybe leave it again. I know some people may think oh it's only a comment, what does it matter. Well I can honestly say that when you work in isolation as I do, then every single comment is a blessing, a source of encouragement and is read again and again.
Now for my work...and I apologise for these pictures, a little dreary. They have been altered to try and lighten them up but I am battling grey skies and rain so it's an almost impossible job. The white cutwork and applique has had eyelets added. I can't seem to get excited about this piece for some reason, to me it says ordinary and lacks something. What that something is I don't know. I added a swathe of muslin to one area to break up the plain surface. I do like the result but I'm still ''not feeling'' the piece as a whole so it is going to be put to one side for a while and that means I am about to start a new piece......today.
