This is turning out to be a week of many commitments, so I will probably not be able to return to ‘work’ – that is, the next peace quilt currently awaiting my attention – until next week at the earliest.
However, I did manage to finish the book cover I started on Friday. This, if you remember, is what came out of the boxes of scraps and jumbles of threads.
I really like these little alphabet beads. I’ve used them many times before to make the title of a sketchbook. I like the way you can string them in a line – they’re through-drilled horizontally – which makes them very easy to stitch down.
So this will be a week of small things. Little jobs that are overdue plus little jobs with a pressing deadline; a medium-sized task that must be done by Friday and which already seems a little overwhelming. If it all goes well, I’ll be happy to share it along the way. If it turns out to be beyond my capabilities, I think I will probably just lie low for a while. I do like a challenge.
