I’d been finding it difficult to get started on the work that needed doing for some reason. There’s a lovely Welsh saying ‘Deuparth gwaith ei ddechrau’ - this just rolls off the tongue and it must be one of my favourite sayings and it is so true. Roughly translated it says ‘Starting means half the work is done’. It was very true this time because once I started I just couldn’t stop and I made 5 bags, 9 heart decorations a picture that I had framed, plus a few brooches.
Here are some of my bags with some scarves that looked really good with them and they were made by Rosemary. I was pleased to have an order for two more bags before Christmas and I hope to get on with them while I’m still in the mood. As you can see all these were made using the embellisher. Which reminds me that I have been booked to give a class at Carol’s new shop ‘Stitch It’ in Llandudno. Her new website is still in progress but will be ready soon.
