Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all had a lovely day. It’s been a bit dreary and wet here in my little corner of the northeast of England. So Sarah and I decided we would have a nice quiet weekend indoors. We did a few chores. Well actually we did a lot of chores! I’m still trying to sort and tidy things. It’s amazing what you accumulate over fourteen years!
I’m not posting about my sewing progress today. I recently posted my end of year Operation Taking Flight report, well I have another little something to report on a similar subject.
I forgot to tell you that Sarah’s embroidered panels will be part of a display at her university until Christmas. She must be doing something right because she was invited to take part of in a research project. The project is basically embroidered as desired and the subject matter is the face of a person who she believes has taught her something valuable. So here is a sneak peek at Sarah’s piece …..
Well believe it or not this embroidery work is based on a photo of me. Sarah decided that I should be her subject because I taught her to stand up for herself. Even though I’m certainly not an oil painting I was really pleased to have been chosen as her chosen subject! Not to mention that I’m so pleased that I taught her something she considers important. I’m looking forward to seeing all the embroidered art received from all the different students involved in this research project. I think there will be all manner of interesting techniques and media used to produce the artistic embroidered pieces included in this research project.
So it’s been an interesting day mooching around indoors. Apart from doing a few some chores I treated myself to a quiet afternoon of stitchery work and mischief. The strain of family issues has been rather trying over the last few weeks. The embroidery work on my Sweethearts Dozen is soothing my soul at the moment. I’ll be sorry when the embroidery work is finished. I guess I will have to hand quilt the Sweethearts Dozen in hopes that it will be as soothing as the embroidery work was.
So for this evening, this very happy and super ambitious longarm quilter is enjoying chilling out. I hope you have a super cosy evening doing something you love doing. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching ♥ ♥
