They’re cutting down trees. They’re putting up reindeer and singing songs of joy and peace….(Thank you Joni….)
The people who work where I do split into:
- the ones who are already on leave as they had to use up this year’s holiday allowance,
- those who are desperately trying to do all the work that needs doing before they finish for the year,
- and those who are counting the hours until they finish on Friday and get two blissful weeks off (I think you can see which category I fit into!)
It’s been a bit of a year for me….!
Apart from a short visit to see my Sister I am planning to spend my time cooking, eating, sleeping, embroidering, watching Christmas TV and going for the occasional walk.
I do have one project planned – to make myself a felted customised pouch / bag to carry round my embroidery equipment in. At the moment it lives mostly in a London Graphic Centre carrier bag – but I have big plans for integral pin cushions, a detachable scissors case etc. Watch this space….
Oh and Isobel taught me how to make needle lace just before my embroidery course broke up for Christmas so I will be working on the ‘lobes’ of fungus to be attached to my current felt based embroidery. I could have made them in felt but as she said ‘you know how to do that already’…..
