I'm waiting for the postie this morning with baited breath. The devil didn't bring my awaited parcel on Saturday and I really really want it today so I can take my gorgeous new things with me to Scotland tomorrow.
Jane from Pidgeonstitch (click shop name to see her stuff) has made me a series of bags and purses to match from my umbel fabric and I made myself a co-ordinating book yesterday. This is the first time in many years that I've made a book just for me and I'm madly in love with it. I'm looking forward to placing it in the bags and taking it out again to see how it looks (several times of course).
Jane has kindly sent me some wonderful photographs of the completed items and I've added one of my book just to show the whole set. Can you hear the squee?
So, I'm off to Scotland in the morning to stay with my sister. I decided last week that it was a good idea to have a break and a change of scene. The dark times have been trying to sneak in and there were a few extremely dodgy days that took some serious getting through. I have no idea whther they are hormonal glitches or if I'm going round the proverbial bend, so it's time to take action and regroup.
My sis is moving house at the moment, so I shall be helping her as much as I can. I'm also starting a sculpture type commission while I'm there, which will be a fairly long process and much fun to do. Updates on that at some point in the near future.
When I get back I will be job hunting with extreme urgency. I'm already scouring the web for suitable things, but it's a matter of huge importance that I find something as soon as possible to bring in a steady income. Wish me luck on that one!
I have packing and faffing about to do now, so it's off to the land of suitcase for me.
