It's been ages and ages. Despite all manner of family health problems we did manage a week in Cornwall - would have loved to have stayed longer but was thankful for a week and found loads of inspiration.
Anyway, on to textiley things. The friend I made a bag for earlier in the year asked if I could make a couple more for her sisters who liked pastel colours. I had some "Juliana" by Clothworks so got to work when we returned from our break.
In the post yesterday were some lovely buttons that I won in a giveaway from The Button Company. I have plans for some of them already!
My eyesight continues to be deteriorating and I might start to panic in that there is so much I want to do that I'm not going to be able to see well enough to do it before long. I think the way forward for me, at least for now, is less embroidery and more "sewing" - living without practising some kind of textiles wouldn't be living "my" life! Whilst at the library last week I picked up Jane Brocket's "The Gentle Art of Domesticity" ............... it is so "me". I love it - it's one of the most creatively inspiring books I've picked up in a long, long time.
Whilst I am gathering my thoughts for the way forward for me, I'm progressing with a lilac themed project using snippets of these fabrics
