This is a slow methodical process and I have the urge to go out and rave it up!
Locked indoors, best Albums on....threads everywhere .... slow progress.... 4 pairs of scissors on the loose ... keep losing them all, the applique bronx of Bristol.
Occasionally a flash of self doubt... Aghh!
What IF they dont like it.....?"
This lasts for approximately 3 seconds and then I delve back in - like a deep sea diver through seaweed, steadily positively thrusting forward, one stroke at a time, steady and inspired, with the occasional gleam of sun through the sweed and the knowledge that everything is going to be alright.
They are gonna LOVE IT!
Patience Louby G patience.
It will all turn out fine.
Not just fine but MIGHTY FINE!
Finer than a fresh loaf of bread, a finely baked cake, a bed of snowdrops, a rainbow on a rainy day...
(Deary me. Have I been indoors too long?)
Steady now.... tricky wicky.
Don't worry - its just the reflective fabric reflecting back at the flash ... the idea is that occasionally the eyes will flash at you if hit by a light. Traffic - torches, bikes, street lights, fairy lights... who knows but once these are embroidered - they wont be quite so worrying. Patience veiwers.
