After a gentle but necessary prod from Lee and the assistance of fine tutorials on the web, I succeeded in creating my first covered tape measure. What's more it actually works.
Chris at work tells me he is polishing the aluminium for the floss winders, so soon the little tin will full and this task will be completed.
Threads and pattern are chosen for my "learning piece" of crewel work. I intend to make the preordained errors of the novice on this one before I attempt the pinball on which I have set my heart. Besides which, a crewel work piece will make another page for my NMMSAL. My March page will be hardanger and I hope to do a simple but different drawn thread edge for this page.
I have been busy at the library over the last week and have managed to find 15 of the books on my To Be Read list as well as another 4 that look interesting so the pile beside the bed is very high. Just as well the library issues for a month!
Well that's all for tonight.
