I have been thwarted in my attempts to blog tonight by recalcitrant Blogger and a grumpy laptop that decided to go on a go-slow! As a result I shall keep this post short as I'm away to my bed soon.
This is the piece of Afghanistan embroidery that I bought at the NEC on Thursday. I think Sebajan is the name of the person who made the embroidery. There were so many designs I was spoilt for choice but I chose this one because of its colours and shapes. I shall have to think about how I shall incorporate this into a larger piece, maybe a bookwrap.
I have to admit to some shopping at the Show on Thursday. I thought I would have a go at indigo dyeing in the summer and I am led to believe that this kit from Art Van Go makes the procedure much simpler. We shall see! I got a bargain with the various stamps so I have forgiven myself for having a spend and I couldn't resist the threads.
We got all excited today because we thought Mum was going to have the pacemaker fitted, in fact she rang me at 12 to say she was about to go to theatre for the procedure. Four hours later I rang to see how she had got on and they had failed to complete the insertion of the pacemaker so she has got to go through it all again, probably tomorrow. We are hoping that their next attempt will be successful cos my Mum has been through enough. She is very sore tonight and has stitches so she will have another lot tomorrow when they try again. On the plus side we will be seeing her tomorrow - at last! - assuming she is not in theatre when we get there!
I leave you with a picture of celandines that should really be blooming all over our lawn by now but the cold winter is holding them back.
If I don't get to blog again for a few days I wish you all a very Happy Easter. Thank you for all your lovely comments as ever and for the support you have been sending us all the while Mum has been in hospital. I hope the Easter Bunny is good to you!
