Sorry about the lack of posts but I now find that I have been fighting viral pheumonia, which my husband brought back from Ireland, and a dose of pleurisy. These viruses certainly took my name at the beginning of 2018... Continue reading

I would just like to sit and do nothing but I can’t give in to this. So just a little stitching every day. Sent from my iPhone

Work is very slow and not the best I can do with this RSI injury. My limit is one length of stranded cotton divided into 3 x 2 strands and I have to stop. Still the class isn't until January... Continue reading

They discharged me from hospital and I went straight to the Stitches and Craft Show down the road. I'm not sure it was the soundest decision I have ever made but I got there when it opened and only spent... Continue reading

I am going to be out of action for the next week as I am going into hospital for a raft of tests. I have been ill since February this year and although the Doctor thinks it is just one... Continue reading

I am working on the Children's Classes for 2019 under the theme of "how to find embroidery designs using the internet." The first project is a small bag and I have selected two free designs from the net for this.... Continue reading

I managed to get ill again just when I was about to start a new on-line course, and one I really want to do. So much so I paid for a Certificate of Attainment before I started, just to make... Continue reading

The last couple of weeks have been a kind of a blur. I hate being ill, but sometimes it just lays you low and you have to give into it. For the first time, ever, I have had to leave... Continue reading

It is time to think about the next Children's Class in 2019! OMG. Having recovered from that little shock I set out on an internet search starting with "Free Hand Embroidery Patterns." This RSI injury is really limiting what I... Continue reading

Neither do I and I have the added problem that the linen I am using has an open weave. Not good for French Knots. Sent from my iPhone

Nothing startling. Just continuing with the Kogin coasters and thinking about a bookcover from the latest book. I am trying out this design. Using the 6 strands for the French Knots is a bit confronting. I think she must use... Continue reading
