Today I spent the morning as a visitor at the Embroiderers and Lacemakers Guild. It is St Cattern's Day (otherwise known as St Catherine) and she is the patron saint of Spinners, Weavers and Lacemakers. This was the reason for their Open Day but the reason I went was for a refresher course in Lucet Cording. Several years ago I learnt this but never felt confident so off I went today.
However in the "meet and greet, have a cup of tea" time I spied an elderly lady setting up a beginners bobbin lace table and I was then sidetracked from Lucets to Lace.
On the stitching front I have finished the pulled thread cushion (this is not its permanent home -hence the colour clash)
Work promises to be a lot busier this week which will be great - better busy than bored - but I have Thursday off and plan on a visit to the bookshop (Christmas presents), the clothes shop (a new jacket) and of course the Needlework Shop! Have a great week everybody.
