I have decided if you ever want to lower your self esteem put the tacking in for an embroidery project. Have just completed the tacking for an upcoming workshop with Alison Snepp on Tharcian Embroidery and found I am unable to consistently count 4 threads - how depressing! One line had to be done 3 times eck. But it is completed now, just have to chose some colours and get the crease lines out of the linen - it has been in the stash for a while. This weekend I am off to Auckland to see Mötley Crue and Alice Cooper in concert will be fun to pretend I am 17 again! Also looking forward to checking out Ribbon Rose as I gave not been to their new premises.
