There is something about a blank page in my design journal with my pencils and putty rubber at the ready. To sit and stare out the window and think. I also like to gather bits of fabrics and notions such as lace, buttons, papers and threads ... laid out for me to look at. I have to say generally I see a design in fabric and know what I would like to do with it to some extent.
I am awaiting some drawer liners ( lavender scented for the munchers ...) I looked everywhere and could not find any but good old Amazon came up trumps. The thing is they will take day but they are William Morris too so they are forgiven. My dilemma is do I put everything away then take it all out and put the liners in and it back (seems like a ghastly thing to have to do) or wait which could be days. Whilst waiting everything is in boxes because of the munchers or I would never sleep! It has put me back days and with so much to do I am like a cat on a hot tin roof ... but there it is.
I do not like to say this too loudly but the weather has been glorious and is making me feel like getting our wooden furniture out for the summer and hanging baskets etc. It will be out before Bank Holiday weekend that is for sure, which means sewing in the garden with a cold drink and an umbrella up so I can see what I am doing and the sun is not on the delicate fabrics but my legs poked out in the sun to get some colour!!!
Well that is is for today I hope you all have a wonderful day and I will be back here on Thursdays so until then enjoy the sunshine ( shhhhhhh - don't tell it) and as always Happy Stitching! XX
