I haven’t been in the studio all week. I’ve had some busy days, and in between I haven’t felt too well with my M.E. so I have rested. I have done a bit more on my embroidery project, and this is the latest piece I have completed:
again using whipped spiderweb stitch which is fast becoming a favourite! I like the focal point with the shi-sha mirror, too, and of course, all the French knots that I really like doing! The red thread in this one is sparkly, but of course it doesn’t show up properly on the photo.
Remember this one from last time?
I have now completed it.
I’ve done a couple more, too, which you can read about in more detail here.
I’ve now done 27 in total, and have only 17 more to go!!
Something else I finished this week… Remember this? It is a mandala I drew on my iPad Pro and have been colouring in at odd moments.
I decided it had been a work in progress for too long, so I completed it.
I did some baking this week, for a couple of events (our monthly informal cancer cake-athon meeting, and a shared lunch at church). I wrote about this in my previous post, here.
Custard tarts, coconut macaroons filled with chocolate ganache and gingerbread biscuits:
and sticky toffee pavlova (my favourite pudding in the whole world!).
Not much else to report except the good news that my pesky wisdom tooth has now settled down completely – no more pain!! I think it’s emerged a tiny bit more than before. I shall probably die of old age before it makes a full appearance!
Here’s Beatrice sitting on my lap.
I tried to get her to look at me, but she wouldn’t. A few minutes earlier, I had Phoebe too, but when I got the camera out, she jumped off. Why are kitties always so contrary?
