Well, it’s been a really busy weekend. Four days travelling to various points south, east and west certainly are tiring. We covered over 500 miles, and had 2 really early starts during this time. Setting the alarm for 4.30 in the morning isn’t much fun at the best of times, but – setting it two days in a row is even worse. The days were long, but we had so much fun, met some lovely people, and saw beautiful work. Today is a rest day. In effect, a ‘weekend’, but that just hasn’t worked! We are off again tomorrow to see the students on the Distant Stitch courses, so instead of putting out feet up we are restocking boxes and trays, and soon I have more fabric to iron! No complaints, I’ll rest up on Wednesday…… I hope.
I had imagined that I would have lots of rest time today, and that I would be able to sew this and that, read a few books that are patiently waiting, and also finger through some mixed media magazines that are sitting on my shelf! Of course, there won’t be time for any of that, but I am hoping to put another tutorial up sometime in the next short while. I want to show you all how I make my scrinchies. The some of the ones I showed you earlier were made from the above stitching, including this one
The pieces are tinier than they at first appear. I’ll be posting it here first, but no doubt it will make its way onto the blog at some point.
