I have been trying to blog all day but my daughter had lots of homework, mainly research for different projects and was glued to the computer.
I did squeeze in just to upload on to flickr!
I decided to embellish on to this vintage linen cloth, it's worked quite well, although I have used quite a lot of machine embroidery over the silk to stop the edges fraying up.
The next stage is to add the hand stitching.
I have also finished the brooch above, based on the patterns that I see in the trees.
We bought lots of the energy saving light bulbs this week, they had them on offer in Sainsburys.
You could buy one for 99p or five for 50p !
They should last a lot longer than a normal bulb, allegedly ten years.
I now have to get used to the light, they do take a few minutes to warm up and it is a softer kind of light.
I may do my shopping list Saturday later, providing I can get to the computer.
I can see, that we may need to have a rota soon!
