Today I received a nice surprise from Patti
as she has given me my first award of 2009. Thank you Patti. I know I should pass this award on but I feel too sick at the moment so please forgive me if I just say that everyone in our SB world deserves an award; so to those that blog; to those that read and comment and to those that do both please accept the above award.
I have not picked up a needle and thread since last Friday although I have to tried to keep up with reading and commenting on blogs. I just wish I could get a good nights sleep; I am a real grumpy bear when I don't get my sleep! But I did get out my Kumihimo Disc which was given to me by a friend ages ago and which, I am ashamed to admit, I put away and forgot - sorry Caroline! There was a link on someone's blog to a You Tube video (here
) showing how to use the disc so I thought I would have a go. OK I won't be able to use the braid for anything but it's my first attempt and I enjoyed having a go. So much so I now want a Marudai
and have found a UK supplier so watch this space. The braid in the picture should be down through the hole in the disc but I pulled it through to the front so you can see the braid more clearly (click on picture for a closeup view).
I have two exchanges to do for the end of the month. One is stitched so just needs to be finished; the other needs both stitching and finishing although I have chosen fabric and floss. I hope I can get these exchanges out on time.
Back to my sick bed!
Thanks for visiting
