What an exciting week. Have been editing Lynda and Carol's book. It was really hard as I kept wanting to leap up and try out all their tricks. We are in for a real treat with this one, folks.
Mine is coming on well,too - here's a composite of some surfaces from my backgrounds chapter.
Trouble is all my backgrounds have ambitions of being foregrounds but I am enjoying getting back to stitching. Pleased with progress and both books are on track for April.
Talking of stitching I have been playing with this - the Bernina Stitch Regulator. When I tried it before I wasn't keen but I had a go with one belonging to a friend of mine and I'm quite hooked. When I've had more time to play with it I'll report back. Anyone got one - tell us how you like it. I love the tin.
Not a lot to report - too busy working. Poor Clive's bad back turned out to be a kidney infection. He's much better now, thanks to the antibiotics. Good thing I made him go to the docs, wabbit.
Good to have the wabbit back, by the way. Would love to see Smudge's portrait. I've often drawn my other cats but he won't stay still. Never did find out what he'd been up to when he damaged himself, but yesterday he came home smelling of perfume! I hope the explanation was that he'd been visiting my neighbour - he sometimes pops in there to help her cats eat their food.
Glad you liked WoW, Gina - I thought we had some especially exciting folk this time.
Heather - I do hope your eyes are sorted, I remember Val getting her cataracts done and she said the clarity of vision afterwards was incredible - like have a veil removed. Well, that's what it is, I guess.
Going to have a fun afternoon planning our trip to Australia. We are doing the show in Perth with Dale (can't wait) and then going to see the boy in Sydney. Planning a side trip up to Broome. Not getting any interest on the savings so may as well spend it!
