The latest scrap of doodled cloth has been extended with applique. There are now two partial flower heads on this piece, each petal edged with a double row of chain stitch in two colours. I damp stretched this last night and now I will roll it onto a tube so that it can be safely taken to London with me.
I am just about ready...I think. Lace cloth has been tied to stiff card so it doesn't crease, pillows have been placed in clean bags to keep them dirt free, there is a pile of pockets and a couple of pouches waiting to be wrapped in calico. Let's hope I have room for my unmentionables. The sewing machine will be packed any minute now and then I must check my list...pins, needles, thread, scissors, wadding, cloth, pockets of cloth, name badges, table cloths, paper plates, napkins......(for the cake).....if I've left anything off there please feel free to give me a nudge.
My blog will post daily whilst I am gone as if by magic...videos....short videos and I will be posting on Instagram, probably obsessively whilst I am in London so if you want to keep an eye on me just have a look over there.
Behave yourselves when I'm gone......miss you already.
