I now have four of these pieces. My intention was to have five by today, maybe ten by Sunday...hmm. I only got two finished yesterday because other essential creative things got in the way such as ironing, washing, cleaning, cooking. You know, those things that every embroiderer cannot function without?? My ironing pile would keep a Victorian scullery maid in work for months, I kid you not. Big dents have now been made in it though so it's all systems go for the weekend but first....yes, I need to IRON my cloth...the cloth that will be embroidered.
***please note...before I get tons of e-mail querying my use of the hideous implement that is the iron and asking how I can put it near my work. The iron is for the cloth before it is embroidered...once a single stitch has been worked my cloth will never encounter an iron again, no matter how long it lives. Well not in this house anyway!!***
Now that's that cleared up...
I am also aware that my inbox is full to bursting....sorry!! I am planning to tackle that over the weekend too. Promise, promise, promise. Cross my heart and hope to die xxx
