In between a lot of small cleaning projects and staying outside as much as possible improvisations pop up and I play a little.
There are bags to be practised for the swap when the frames arrive from the shop and a major quilt project is being planned.
The Portuguese whitework is being lined with silk embroidered with french knots and should very soon turn into a small pouch for my pearls. I'm also dabbing a bit on some very old linen and making a baking cloth embroidered with some cuteness. My crewel projects also gets attention on a regular basis.
I'm very well aware that my UFO's are stalling but I'm not going to quilt anything - I finally gave in and realised that I really need a new sewing machine - one with feed dogs that can be lowered and a Walking Foot.
I need to drag myself into the 21st century, pamper my self and for once get that wallet out of its dark place and let go of the savings.
Summer holidays - which for me means travelling abroad - are therefore suspended - instead I'll treat my self to a trip to London in October, where I have booked some small crewel lessons with the super talented Philippa Turnbull from Crewelwork.
I can live with that. Ohhh yes I can!
So - summer at home in Copenhagen - what to do?
HAHA - pack you bag, sister - and get on that bus, that train or that bike - this city is packed with fun stuff to do.
I'll do that:-))
.. and keep playing..........
