Yesterday I washed my car, thoroughly and felt pleased with the shiny result.
Today I took the DBEM to see the Embroidery Exhibition and we parked the car in the middle of the car park. Not under a tree, not near a fence and not on the side of the road. An hour later we returned and the shiny car was now spotted with excrement from what I take to be a swarm of bees. Little yellow orange spots dotted the shiny cobalt blue of my Mazda. So this afternoon I washed my car thoroughly - AGAIN
Today I measured the floss needed to make a twisted cord for my newly completed box top. I twisted the floss, knotted it carefully and measured the box. Oh dear not long enough. So I consulted my book, measured carefully, twisted the floss, knotted the ends AGAIN! Success. Here is the box top. I love it and am so pleased to have finally completed a stitched top for this box which I bought twenty years ago while on holiday in the South Island.
skew-whiff - the stitching is actually centred. Now to find a use for the box.
