thanks for all the lovely comments and emails - it's nice to know so many people care. When you lose some of your art you lose some of yourself but you just move on - I went to the yacht club this morning and took lots of pics of poles and rust stuff and did some sketching of some wonderful shapes. As you can see I have started a pile of flowers - working through every stitch on my Bernina to get a big stockpile for my new cover. I shall attack them with a soldering iron at some stage. I have also started my my cover but I shall only work on it slowly as i have too many pressing things to do but I did need to get started. The other one has my name stitched on it in a tiny corner - this one is going to be a little more prominent.
Lots of enrolments for both on-line workshops which is great - I am working hard on finishing the Ratty Tatty lesson notes and then to work some more on my samples. Sometimes I create then write and other times I find I need to write then create and then for both I tweak because as you know things don't always work out the way your brain thinks they might.
It has been a lovely day but there sure were a lot of people on the roads this morning. We are about to have a bbq in our getting tidier back garden.
