Yesterday I finally motivated myself to get working again. It was hard. At 1pm, I was wandering around feeling lost, at 3.15pm I was running around trying to finish and get home before the school bus. Isn’t that just typical. I sorted out a beautiful piece of hand dyed rayon cloth to hand stitch.
I’ve moved the room around – the sewing machine table was under the window and it was freezing! The unit is SO cold for the first hour and then it warms up. But it is generally –3C overnight and only gradually getting to 4C during the day. We are all fed up of this cold weather. We still have loads of snow in the garden and the hills are white over.
I had long sheets of bondaweb painted with acrylics and the paint was starting to flake off everywhere so I had a bonding session with the iron. Next stage is to make some Towers, but as I want them for the Festival of Quilts I can’t really show them here first. I will have to show tantalising snippets.
OK, have a good day – I’m off to Newcastle for a haircut and colour and some retail therapy!
