I have taken three vintage patchwork quilt pieces that I have written sayings on and so I have chosen some threads to take and that is an easy pick up and put down project. If our friends get tired late afternoon and before we all go out to dinner whilst away in Hotels then I am not wasting time in a hotel room with nothing much to do. Do not get me wrong a lovely bath and not having to rush is great but then if there is still time then I can sit and have a little stitch .... I know I should go to meetings shouldn't I ...Hello my name is Sarah and I am a stitcher holic .... .
I am hoping that my parcel of some more hand dyed shaker threads variegated by the very nature that some of the thread is darker that other parts and it looks so beautiful as you stitch along .. Its like natural shading!!
will come today as I am running low on one in particular called Holly Berry and it is used so much in my work ... its red as you can imagine but because they are hand dyed it is slightly
Honestly it is only a little bit of stitchery, feeling now that I should justify myself here but a few bits here and there will not hurt ...
I have cut out some fabric for some hexagons that I am working on so I am making up little bundles to stash around so there is always some stitching to hand (in our bedroom at home and in our suitcases to go away) whilst writing this I am shaking my own head so you are not alone doing this!
Looking forward to the rest though with not having to juggle housework, cooking, helping my mum and my stitching work will be wonderful so I am looking forward to this mini break and having time to just be.
Talking vintage patchwork quilt pieces for the moment, one of my designs has some very old English
paper pieces just pinned to the corner with the paper part showing with all the gorgeous old writing on it in sepia ink... It looks really lovely and sometimes simplicity just works. I have sorted out a little pack of buttons to take with me as well and then if I get some finished then the button can be stitched on and then it will be complete. My trade mark has to be on there and I know it will bug me if I do not have some with me ....
Well I must be off to juggle my day as I have some more housework to do and also have the Chimney sweep coming as well so if it is cold we can light a fire with out worry ... Nothing says hello and welcome to England like the fire brigade being called!! I can then settle happily to my stitching and today I can cuddle in my favourite armchair and put the radio on ... my day is sorted.
Have a great day and as always Happy Stitching! XX
