First things first...the class is filling up so if you are dithering, questioning, agonising or wondering you best get over there quick!!
I have so many things in progress at the moment. Last night I added more to yesterdays embroidered piece, damp stretching it before I went to bed in order that it would be pristine and perfect for you today. I also cut out and gathered up some tiny circles of cutwork that I had embellished and damp stretched over the weekend. These will eventually be delicate little fabric beads with a very lovely piece of Broderie Anglaise peeking through the little windows.
My dining room is like a bomb site...I kid you not. I have cloth strewn from one end to the other. The ironing board and iron have not been put away for days, making it quicker for me to press things before I set to work. I have a video camera and tripod in the mix along with a permanently full cup of coffee, loose papers containing lists and ideas that spring up at any time, day or night. Oh and I mustn't forget the scissors, water spray, ruler and numerous other things that combined make for an absolute hive of disaster!! On a positive note, my son flew to The States yesterday so I have one less mouth to feed.....and (she says dancing round the room!!!) I am being taken out to eat tonight so NO COOKING!!!! Result!!
