We really were this close to the Tweed, England is the opposite bank, and in the midst of Reiver country. Mark took fishing rods, I took embroidery and even the dogs were quiet.
Back home I dragged out the trusty turn to project - a pair of slippers for Mark that I have been embroidering forever. They've even been to the Borders a couple of years ago!
I'd completed one foot and was determined to complete the other
And weh heh, only about 8 rows to go. Now just to decide how to turn them into slippers!
As well as these I am doing a private commission, and will be embroidering a pair of canvas work chair seats for a friend. But then....
I want to return to my sampler book of historic embroidery, remember Mrs Delaney's flower? So I will probably do some goldwork this time, maybe on velvet? And I need to think of the cover for the sampler book. (Get your ideas down in a sketchbook girl!) Oh, and I've to frame up for fine whitework with Tracy and then Christmas is coming up, and the church Fair..............
No chance of getting bored then!
