One of the classes that I teach is Machine Finishing for Embroiderers'. It is all about how you get a good finish when you make up your work. Now some embroidery doesn't need you to use a sewing machine to... Continue reading

Yes, she kept at that for over a year after the class. That is why I said I would make it up for her. A really good result. Sent from my iPhone

Such little output!! Me who is always on the go and doing things. Still there are a couple of positives. I finished the Kogin Cushion for my student. It wasn't as straight forward as I would have liked and the... Continue reading

Poor marshmellow he was in such a state when I found him. I bought myself a new cover for the phone and I can get the glass in the screen repaired.

I just get frustrated that I am not fully well. This must be the universe trying to teach me patience?

Ha ha, you have just distracted me with your You Tube Tutorials. Great way to be distracted though. Cleaning can wait.
And they are great for using up left over fabric.

Marshmellow is not my favourite sheep at the moment. In fact I am giving him the cold shoulder. He was so cute as a lamb. Now I'm not talking to him. He got out of the yard the other day... Continue reading

This job seems to go on for every! It also brings with it a whole lot of difficult decisions. Should this left over fabric go in the bin or should I try to reuse it? Back some time ago this... Continue reading

They sure are. I was interested to read Mary Corbetts take on her classes. I have trouble getting them to stop for morning tea and lunch!

I send all my second hand goods to St. Vincent de Paul Charity so I know that linen will find a good home. When we moved a few years ago I hung onto a lot of linen, for sentimental reasons but I know I will not use it so it is time to go. I think it will take a week to get the room sorted.

The past few weeks have been fast and furious. I have had lots of deadlines and I have been fighting the flu and the end of this virus. But here I am, still standing or standing, some of the time.... Continue reading
