When I took my sun & moons piece
with me to Yvette, it had been quite some time
since I last stitched on it.
That's what happens sometimes :
things are tucked away,
waiting till their turn comes again.
When I opened it up
I took my little special bag with variegated threads
and in it were the new bits I bought
at HAWAR's lovely shop.
There were all kinds of red thread and lace band in it,
and the lace band triggered the next step
I could have couched it but I sewed it on invisible
because I liked to see the change in colour.
At the same time I added my magic thread
around the sun.
(waiting for thousends of stitches more)
that I had a lovely belated birthday present last week :
a friend took me to a wonderful garden.
I drove up to her house,
we rode on a bike to the ferry,
crossed the river and came to the
(sorry but the site is only in Dutch)
The weather was so beatiful.
We had a stroll around the garden
and then had some tea
and also some delicious homemade jam.
It was such a wonderful afternoon !
(we will return next year for a workshop ...
making Calendula ointment perhaps)
