Embroider's Guild today, talk was "20th century collectables" , just made me wish I had hung onto even more "stuff" than I have. Paticularly the Woolworths china we had when we were first married which now, apparently, fetches £10 a plate!!! Told anyone who'd listen about TAST, stitched a bit,admired other people's expertise, set the world to rights, laughed a lot,acquired some knowledge from generous members (tips on mounting fabric) in other words what I've come to expect of a day at the guild!!
I think this is the time to reveal my difficult working conditions.
I bought the basket so that I could bring things from my workroom to the living room, well, it's a bit nippy down there in the winter and I do like to spend time with my husband. Electra, my old lady cat decided that this was just what she had been waiting for and immediately claimed it as her own. She will only sleep in it if it contains something I may need to work with, if I empty it she refuses to sit in it. Thomas just likes to sit on my knee period. So the minute I pick up a needle he knows I am going to be there for some time and he arrives.
