Well my dear friends "life" has certainly taken me over during these past months, and I have not been able to find the motivation for my blog. Fortunately all the issues that have reared their ugly heads have subsided for now, and I am beginning to once more feel some normality returning.
During my absence from blogging I had two trips away. My eldest son came and collected me and took me to theirs for a couple of weeks. It was a real healing experience and whenever I felt down the pups must have been able to tell because they would come and lie next to me on the bed. Animals seem to have a sixth sense that some humans dont have.
At Open Day for the quilt group in February, a couple of ladies asked me if I would be able to show them some stitches so they could expand their knowledge. Well the first class came to fruition 2 weeks ago, with the first small group of 6. The ladies are all enthusiastic, and I am thoroughly enjoying this.
I worked a little design of fantasy flowers and grasses which gives a number of stitches to learn. Things were not without their hiccups during the time I was preparing this. First I managed to slice some skin off the tip of my thumb, then when I washed some marks out of the embroidery a couple of the colours ran. This meant a quick trip to the shops to buy colour run remover and it all turned out ok in the end.
Bye for now
