super mum

What can super mum do that super dad can't? Well she can cut up mountains and metres of hand dyed silk gauze, roll it up, wrap silk ribbon around it, drink her wine, watch and comment on the rugby all at once. Don't they look lovely? Just like a huge basket of my favourite roses.

Another busy super 15 rugby weekend with injuries everywhere. There will be no players left for the world cup at this rate. And a glorious day here today - very very warm and difficult to imagine that winter will ever arrive.

upside down Truffa graffiti piece - truffa I read means hoax, spoof or swindle, so I have stitched these words on black tuile and Romeo cold water soluble and hand stitched them onto my back ground. You just need to turn your head around. A lot of people have been asking how to stitch on soluble fabric (and more) so I am working on a new on-line workshop to hopefully satisfy those needs. It seems that there is a lot of gimmicky stuff around but not much substance.

Gorgeous fabric rolls Dale and Truffa is looking very good. If manufacturers were a little more forthcoming with how to use new products they's sell a lot more. Well done for filling the gap.

Happy Mother's Day. Only moms can do lots at one time-we have to! Tempting fabric rolls.
