Back Again!!

Been somewhat indisposed recently. Firstly I was very busy creating for two exhibitions that Silk-n-Threads were holding, both going very nicely up to date, see link on right. Then I managed to get a rather bad bladder infection due to some grit that scrapped the inside of my bladder. Both very painful and resulted in a trip in an ambulance to A&E and a visit from the emergency doctor. Two doses of strong antibiotics later I now feel better but if you have ever had to pass bladder or kidney stones you know what I went through.

However back to my workroom and finishing off all those pieces that have been sat around for far too long.

Firstly the finished book cover made from the fabric paper that I made back in early September. Pleased with the result as it is just the right size to fit in my larger handbags!


Back of the book cover.

I finally got around to having the Patchwork of Life embroidery mounted and framed ready for the exhibition at the Bollington Arts Centre.


Closeup of the stitching on Patchwork of life. I completed this as part of Sharon Boggon Sumptuous Surfaces course in the summer.

Yey, glad you are back and working again.

I love these pieces.
Isn't it a wonderful feeling when you manage to finish something that has been hanging around for a while!

Hugs, Alis

Margaret - I know I am lte catching this news but I am sorry to hear of your health troubles. I had the same complaint ( during the sumptuous surfaces course) when I went to hospital to have my gall bladder removed. I have been great since and totally back to normal now and I sewar once over the surgery you won't miss it one little bit
