Tonight I've been building a cottage - well three walls and a base. Oops it's up side down! I'm not sure that I like the Est. 2014 but I wasn't brave enough to attempt to change that completely. The front door, window and trailing roses on the front side are more complicated and will need to wait until tomorrow. The base has to have initials and I really want an entwined M and S but can't find any in my alphabet books so will have to get out the graph paper and a pencil and chart my own. That's another job for tomorrow night.
And in the interests of frugality and because linen is very expensive at $140 a metre I have filled all available space on this piece and tacked out the pieces for another project. This probably means I will need to stitch that project before I can cut out and construct the cottage ??? Oh well, so be it. I will do that one next so watch this space.
Now another week starts. Tomorrow is pay day at work so I will have to do the wages first thing. Everybody loves me on wages day :-)
I work for a large Government Department. Outside work I enjoy embroidery and stitch mainly traditional pieces of counted work always in Linen and generally with DMC or silks. My other love is reading and I visit the local library nearly every week. My elderly mother lives with me. She is increasingly deaf and quite blind and in this blog is known affectionately as the DBEM.
