This has to be one of my favourite times of the year - getting ready for the annual Spring Stitch-In that Rosie and I host at GlenHarrow Gardens! We have been off purchasing fabric (what could be more fun?!), bolts and bolts of it:
And getting our projects ready (don't ask for more than a little sneak peek!):
And kitting up too. My heart goes out (and my back, and my arms, and entire body) to all the shop owners who cut kits day after day - it's REALLY hard work! We have the kits all ready for lovely days of handstitching, including the pleasure of just sitting and stitching because we've cut out your fabric and done your iron-on transfers already!:
We are almost organised and I will continue to be running to schedule if the power doesn't fail again! We have had HUGE winds in this part of the world and numerous blackouts due to large trees falling on powerlines (I do live in the forest!) Can't think of a better reason to get out those lovely candles! I have a decorating policy in my home that's known as the three F's: Fabric, Flowers, and Flame. Do this and your house will certainly feel like a home!
Until next time,
