This week I decided that the basket of projects needed some attention and so
1) the embroidered Japan Box was put in a tin and put in a cupboard. I am not good at free embroidery and prefer the constraints of counting on linen. So the box is put away until inspiration strikes again. It is not yet at the point where I can see completion ahead so...
2) The hardanger tassels were cut out and stitched up and.....oh no! I have no DMC 712 to make the tassels and no time to go to the store. So this finish is half done :(
Today I tackled some of the garden kept company by a Songbird Thrush who was delighted to scoff the snails I uncovered. He and I will become closer friends in the days ahead - there is a lot of garden at this place. I have cut back, pulled out, dead headed and cleaned up about a quarter and have already had two trips to the Green Waste Dept at the Resource Recovery Centre. The back garden will go into vegetables but the front is supposed to be pretty flowers - we shall see.
