Cleaning up a workshop that has been closed for almost 6 months
consumes a lot more time than I'm really up for.
Displays being dusted.....a tediously boring work.
I can focus on spreading my tables with beautiful embroidered silk again. Much more fun!
Needles on an antique pincushion.
I prefer standing while working but there is a old industrial stool to rest a leg against.
One of the last projects before closing in the beginning of April
is now being documented and filed as completed.
A Ralph Lauren design "A Poetry Walk" in chocolate, handstitched drapes in 3 layers with lining
and blackout, hanging on a special ordered rod in pewter. There is no pleating tape used in the
heading of the drape, the rings are sewn directly onto the top with a linen thread. The rings are then twisted in pairs towards one another to shape natural heavy pleats and will retain the full witdh.
The calender is slowly filling up with appointments, autumn is here
and I'm back on track, if only part time so far. The rest is to be......
By a ✂ hand, Ia. Happily playing with her tools again!
