"Sunday,sweet Sunday.....

......with nothing to do" goes the song. On the other hand for anybody taking part in TAST it is get up early, make the tea and sit down to Sharon's wonderful roundup of the weeks doings. It all just gets better and better, looking through the Flickr site is a real feast for the eyes. I am finding that one of the bonuses of the roundup is that as you wander through the blogs other peoples favourites catch your eye and you wander off into other exciting places.

I would like to thank all the people that enjoyed my piece of silliness with the eyelet stitch. Cooking sherry indeed!!!! Great invention!

One of the things I forgot to say that one of the prompts in my thought process (if I can call it that)
toward the eyelet piece was the title of my favourite canvas work book. The Liberated Canvas by Penny Cornell.


My experiment from the Opus exhibition turned into a beach scene, I think it was the way the cream spiral stitched piece stood up like a shell (it get a bit squashed on the scan.) I really liked working with this technique and hopefully will return to it at some time.

I stumbled on to your blog when I should be off to sleep. But I just had to say that I love what you are doing. I am new to textiles, yet find I have jumped in with two feet and more......... I am taking Saron's class on Joggles next week. I my daughter talked me into buying a Babylock felting machine last Friday. I need to go to bed but I will check out more of your blog tomorrow
