Well would you look at that mess.
This was our garden on Tuesday morning after a right
Hoolie blew in overnight.
I thought well if that’s what May has in store for us I’ll be
in isolation a bit longer.
Monday afternoon I took to my desk while Philip cleaned the
bathrooms as all his outside jobs were cancelled due to bad weather.
I bribed him with the promise of cake and a cuppa later.
Over the weekend I’d been playing about putting scraps of fabric
together on my cork wall. Then I made a crazy paving ribbon with
more bits of the same materials.
Back to Monday afternoon….. keeping on with the lace theme
for the No Rules Textile Society project, I’ve stitched a little
patchwork piece and added cut up pieces of an antique trim
and machined stitched them down in a grid pattern.
Other members have dyed lace, some have made bowls with
threads and dissolvable fabric. The effects are lovely.

What I like about the group is you can do whatever takes your fancy,
there’s no rules. I enjoy the zoom meetings. There’s lots of giggling,
chat and exchanges of ideas.
I do miss being in the company of folk, don’t you.
We are getting a bit nearer to resolving that now thankfully.
Enjoy your week deskhoppers
