Because there's nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean
refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times it is sent away .....
The touch of the sea is sensuous,
enfolding the body in its soft, close embrace.
I had a bit of a panic the other day as I could not find my beautiful embroidery scissors from Sanjou! hunting high and low and in little piles of fabric bits and baskets of embroidery and notions... I could not find them. Then as if in a beacon of light I found the precious scissors in this little basket of goodies. My fault I should be more careful. All is well that ends well as they say.
I have stitched a little patch to sew onto one of my white vintage linen summer dresses. It is a simple design and will grace the dress perfectly, great to keep cool and not mass produced.
Today is all about stitching for future courses and I am having a huge amount of fun with it.
Gathering and hunting for just the right fabrics, linens and threads to complete something in a day. I am timing myself too just to make sure. Everyone has different speeds of slow stitching and its not to be rushed at all. Its meant to be soul stitching and enjoyed to the full.
Lunch is to be enjoyed and it feeds our brains and also a time to chat and have some laughter.
Basically this is my next month sorted of stitching to get some coursers ready for later in the year when we can gather as a little group, with like minded people and enjoy the social side of life again as well as company with our sewing.
Personally I am so looking forward to it and to be able to meet some of you in person, what a day the first one will be.
It will be a busy week ahead getting little packs and baskets ready for The Threads of Time Studio. It will also give me an excuse to look through boxes and drawers to gather beautiful vintage fabrics and hand dyed threads together and to be honest I can not really say its work but more of a delightful pleasure for me. I count my self incredibly lucky to be able to do this each day.
I am hoping for some sunny weather this weekend to be able to go for a lovely walk through the Dorset country side and to discover new places and things to marvel at.
Prehapes a little visit to a seaside to wander along the shore and blow some cobwebs away.
Well that is it for today we have caught up again. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and that the blogs bring a little moment in time for vintage rambling during the week.
As always ... Happy Stitching! and keep safe.
The above photos show the offending Sanjou scissors! bottom right. Well they seemed happy enough nestled in paisley's but for me I needed to be able to see my precious embroidery scissors!
