Trying It Out.

Well, we did have fun yesterday... three women, two machines; one an embellisher, the other a sewing machine. We tried out different types of backing fabric, of fibres, of cloth. We stitched into what we'd made. We laughed a lot. We eventually ate crumpets and drank coffee. Did we have a good time? Oh, yes. The image is one of my trial pieces, a piece of curtain fabric (the image was of a camel, believe it or not), with wool tops and some mohair yarn worked in using the embellisher. I think it has great potential, and I'd really like one. My problem is that I think I may not use it very often. Perhaps I just need to stick to borrowing Jill's every now and again...

I will have all sorts of good intentions, and a list of things to do this year. A Plan, if you will. In amongst it all, though, there will be plenty of days like yesterday. Good friends, good work, a little hilarity and good food...preferably cake. Hey, it works for me!

This evening, of course, is Hogmanay, or New Year's Eve to everywhere in the world that isn't Scotland. May your new year be a joyful, productive and healthy one.

You need to go for it with the embellisher Marion, I think you'll find yourself hooked after a while and won't be able to leave it alone!
Hope you have a happy and healthy 2007 and thank you for sharing your very inspirational blog with us. Best wishes. Lynda

It sounds like a perfect day to me.
I wish you much more in the New Year..
Happy Hogmanay to you and Robin both. I spent the eve with BBC 2 in Belfast livre. Scotlands weather made everyone stay home, to bad no fireworks..
