Well, what an unexpected surprise! No sooner than I pulled out my embroidery for the first time in months and stitched out two little projects, than a special order for a set of seven Sunbonnet Lassies was set in my lap, whipping me into a stitching frenzy!
For the last four days, this has been my lot...
...And a very pleasant lot indeed. Not counting my hands, which are starting to feel much like I imagine a vice would. I alternated stitching with some wild piano playing, which gave some blessed relief;)
Also enjoyed were my all-time favorite period drama, Wives and Daughters, the Lux Radio Dramas Quality Street and Destry Rides Again, and lots of Christmas music...
Have you discovered/enjoyed any good films or music lately? Do share!
And at last, the wonderful feeling of a good job accomplished.
The customer requested lots of greens and yellows, along with a vintage-inspired color palette.
Now available in the shop as a custom set!
Now, on to sewing and last-minute gift crafting! I'm hoping to get a tutorial for the twisted hair style from my last post up before Christmas, too, as it would make the perfect holiday 'do.
Oh, dear. I shouldn't have said that. Now I really have to get going to get this all done in time!
