I am a little later than usual posting my FNWF post today because we are having a Wild and Woolly day today which has me on tenterhooks. I should be enjoying this burst of Summer heat we are having and I do love a good wild, gusty wind.....but the two together spell....EXTREME FIRE DANGER and there have been a number of fires around the area already which makes me very nervous considering our location. The photo below is today's image from the Fire Alert Website that I follow on days like this....nothing to worry about at the moment but matters can change very quickly.
|All the blue edged white squares are reported fires the ones with a blue flame are low alert|
Back to the stitching, which is where my SCATTERBRAIN comes into effect. As I predicted a couple of weeks ago, Block 2 for Flowerville arrived in the mail soon after but since I had my son visit for the weekend +, I have been a bit slack in picking up needle and thread again.
Last night I decided there was no more time to lose but get stuck into it. Preparation of this block is easy because the design is already printed onto the background but it needs some stabilising so I wasted no time ironing on some whisperweft onto the back and then went in search of my favourite round embroidery frame.....nowhere to be found! I searched and searched each and every room in this house but for the life of me...I have no idea where it is. Even today I had another look but still couldn't find it. Not too much of a problem, although it bothers me, because in searching, I found my Sewline square snap frame which fortunately was just the right size. Then for a needle.......looked everywhere for the needle I was using...'cos it was a good'un!
It took me awhile to realise I had left it in my pincushion next to my chair. The reason I put it in the pincushion in the first place, was so I knew where it was when I needed it again! Complete Scatterbrain!
Eventually I got around to stitching but I didn't get as much done as I would of liked and it doesn't make for great photo's just yet.
