finding time to stitch and time to write
They say that as you grow older the days seem to fly by.
Well I can assure you that I don't seem to have enough hours in the day or days in the week.
I have to snatch a few minutes here and there to do some stitching.
The first pic is of a button I am making - the piece is being damp stretched.
The second is part of my wall hanging. It depicts something you will often see at the beach: a shower where you can wash off the salt and sand. These facilities were turned off during the drought of the past decade but now that water is available they are on again.
I have been making some dorset buttons. They are quite relaxing to make and I can do them while watching TV or minding the little girls.
It is a way of using up some of my threads. This one is actually yellow and green and needs a bit more work.
