Yesterday I managed to lock myself in my sewing room/office. This room is under the main part of our house and quite independent - no access from one to the other. We have lived here for a while now but have never shut the screen door down here as it doesn't fit properly and there is no point. Well yesterday I pulled the door fully shut - as it turned out - fully locked. As we don't use the door I don't have a key for it on my keyring, nor have I ever tried any of the many spare keys we were were given for the house. I did however remember that there were keys "somewhere".
After a few minutes of panic I decided to climb out one of the windows. Fortunately they are close to the ground. I went upstairs and looked around and then suddenly remembered that the spare keys are kept down in my office!!!!!!!! Yes, I had to climb back in through the window, sort through the keys and unlock the door!!!!
So funny now.
I have made a little more progress on the piece of pleasted silk. I am now in a quandary about its future. I have decided it is too delicate to be a needlebook and my second idea of a journal cover might work but the piece is quite bulky. Perhaps I'll just frame it and put it on the wall. Any suggestions welcome.
