Back in 2001 I was lucky enough to attend a CA Wells' Living Legacy weekend in Harwich Port, Cape Cod MA. One of the first classes was 'lining a basket' with Marcia Brown of The Binding Stitch. I had not lined a basket before and I was quite pleased with my first (and last) effort!
This is the cartouche that I stitched for the bottom of the basket. There were other items to go into the basket; a photo album with a stitched front cover and a slider purse. If you have never attended a CA class and get a chance - go for it as her classes are fun and you will learn a lot.
A group photo - are you there?
And now if you are of a nervous disposition , look away ...
... this is the scar I am left with on my right hand after my surgery and as you can see it's healed up nicely. My hand is still a little stiff at times and occasionally swells slightly, mostly when I've overdone it and, strangely enough, the weather affects it too! Now to get my eye sorted and I shall be as good as new. The date for this surgery is May 27 so not long to wait now. The wedding is on June 20 so I hope that I will not have too much of a black eye. Nicola has loaned me a great pair of Chanel sunglasses that not only match my dress but will add that air of mystery too!
I did pick up the Dutch Band Sampler last night but not enough progress to post a picture. Some of the beads and the lobster claws I ordered arrived this morning so as soon as the rest arrive, I will be making some more beaded scissor fobs. I will be having a fob giveaway shortly, so please come back if you don't want to miss out!
Thanks for visiting
