A finished pillow, titivated and completed before I went away, safely stored and free from harm. It's already spoken for but will stay home with mother (me) until after the Christmas postal rush. I would hate for it to go astray.
My new book, from Sweden. I don't understand a word of it but I love it just the same. This will make a fantastic ledger. Watch this space.
Thank you so much for the welcome home. Who knew you would miss me so much? I am very grateful. I am also feeling a lot better today.
Embroidery wise I started a new pillow when I got back. It was easy, not challenging in terms of piecing etc but I'm beginning to wonder if I need to shake things up a bit, shake myself up a bit, come up with a new master plan. That's as far as I've got. I had the thought. The thought is still there but it's not growing yet, expanding or developing. My brain is still fuddled from the (jet) lag, the alleged lag anyway. I'm hoping it doesn't last too long, I need a new direction or at least a new piece in mind for the start of Swathed in Stitch otherwise everyone will be asleep on the first day.
So.....jump start my creativity, that's what I need to do or at least jump start a new idea, something fresh. This afternoon I will ponder and cogitate, browse a ledger or two....
