Thread Farnham Maltings

thread 2013 eflyerNext weekend , I will be taking the  hand painted needlepoint and threads to Thread , a new textile show at the Farnham Maltings, Surrey. I think this will be a great event for those who sew, an Unravel experience for those who stitch . I have 2 comp tickets left for whoever gets to me first.

knitting,fast food and shopping in florida


in case you think I have been doing nothing but sitting on the beach- I have actually done quite a bit of knitting- new bag 1st sample, new blue heron cardigan (more later),moose dog collar almost needlepointed. However, I have actually done alot more SHOPPING! God, it is amazing…..

most ridiculous American fast food I’ve seen so far- frozen peanut butter and jelly sandwiches from Costco.but before you pronounce this the absolute epitome of laziness, consider that the crusts are off, the edges are crimped so the stuff doesn’t drip out and they do defrost quite nicely on the beach…. Actually, I am quite fond of fast food and have discovered Checkers which does sublime french fries( excuse me, chips) for about 50 cents. have not made it to Krispy Kreme yet….

needlepoint-lost and found

dog-mittensstockings.jpgA  package of 11 canvases showed up on the kitchen table the other day that I ordered back in late November.I had put these down to lost and as I’m bitching about royal mail yet again- I find out my husband had them in his stuff all the time and hadn’t managed to notice the priority mail envelope was not for him…. even more disorganized than me, pathetic. So for those who wanted to do these last xmas- how about this one?

2 other really nice doggy canvases turned up today.dalmation-and-shepard.jpg

while we’re on the subject of nice doggies look at this outstanding picture of the debonnaire cavalier
