There's a lot to show you today, a lot to tell you. Well I say a lot.....it's probably just that I've got more to say than usual. I can't however begin to pretend I am a woman of few words as there are plenty who would challenge that statement I'm sure.
The pictures? There is a glimpse for you of what's happening over in ''4'' and a look at the lace cloth piece from yesterday which is now finished and listed in the shop. This is three pieces of lace cloth joined with buttonhole lace. Why join three instead of making just one big one? Well initially I just made the first piece because I wanted to without a clue as to how it would progress. I then decided I would make more to join onto it. I chose to make two more small pieces as opposed to one bigger one because I love the seam where the join takes place, how I can overlap in that area and form a kind of raised seam, a ridge. I do like this. I have a bigger one that I made in ''lace class'' many moons ago that is draped over a cabinet door in this room I'm in now.
The work from ''4'' is also lace cloth, finer, more delicate with blue going on. I'm totally in love with what's happening over there...utterly....
This morning I made over one and a half hours of video for ''pillows and pages'', for our first lesson. See....definitely not a woman of few words. I already love that class and we haven't even started yet and I absolutely cannot wait until my house is completely crammed with pillows!! Monday...yes Monday....look here if you want to see what will be happening in our pillow infested world. Oh and you can ignore the two videos a week thing....I've got three already and that's just the first day!
I'm sorry about this next paragraph...it seems to be all about the shop doesn't it...sorry....but I decided to de list SS3 as a work on your own class for personal reasons....however.....in it's place I have listed SS2 which I think is perhaps more exciting as it was during SS2 that my daughter got married and the bridal bag got made......very happy days indeed.
I spent a few worried days at the beginning of the week thinking that everyone in the USA had insomnia. Your visits were earlier, what's going on? Then I realised that your clocks went back!!! Ours haven't yet....next week...so we are one hour closer now . Isn't that a nice thought?
(I have now set up a flickr group for ''pillows and pages''. This group is public, invitation only. As yet you cannot upload images but it would help if you joined the group prior to Monday. If you have registered for that programme please go to flickr, search for the group ''pillows and pages'' and request an invitation. Please put your name (your real name as opposed to your flickr screen name) in the subject line so that I can confirm you are registered for this online class.)
