sadly my cleaning lady has been unwell and can't help me at the moment. today i have been cleaning! and most heroically i have actually been ironing and now feel very virtuous having an empty ironing basket. however i have got to be creative.
one advantage to being housebound because of the adverse weather conditions is i have had to knuckle down to some serious work. i've now completed this commission - i'm really pleased with it although its just a little bit 'wavy' - textiles are supposed to be like that aren't they? i'm sure its the density of quilting and the contrast between the rigid 'stone' sections and the soft silk - hey, ho! I hope the customer likes it. now to get on with the other commission, two pairs of trousers to shorten (why has he got such short legs?) new work to produce for Loch Lomond Quilt Show, and then there's the wedding dress and 3 bridesmaids dresses - no pressure then!!!!
