Piles of little scraps, embroidery offcuts, samples, all stored carefully and neatly, kept safe on a shelf. Thing is you can't really ''see'' them, can't be inspired by them as they are stacked up, piled one on top of another. What to do? Separate them in a kind of ''one for you one for me'' way then make two little books, ''one for you and one for me''.
I was going to say shortly......but I don't know if it actually will be shortly so I shall say ''sometime'' in the future these will be finished and one will go in the shop. The other will go on the shelf in the gap left by the scraps....for me.
And....3 weeks from now ''wrapped and bound'' in stitch will begin. A cloth making class, an embroidery class, a fabric, thread, pocket, applique, cutwork, titivation, embellish, adorn......and on and on class. You can read more about that here.
and I must tell you.....one of my neighbours had a baby boy on Thursday.....I visited this morning bearing gifts. You forget how wonderful it is to cradle a new born baby, how comforting and warm that is. He is so tiny, you forget that too. Holding him this morning was all I needed to complete my day.
