Another dozen hearts finished and also a dozen brooches. Now at last I’ve finished my Christmas orders and can get back to some real creativity.
This is the dress I enjoyed making for Mary in a Nativity play, but I don’t expect anyone would want to see the pair of trousers I altered for SIL? No, I thought you wouldn’t. Don’t you just hate altering things for people? It’s lovely to feel that I can ‘turn my hand to anything’, but it can be such a disadvantage at times can’t it? I’d much rather make something from scratch. I have a few pairs of trousers of my own that could do with shortening 1/2” to stop them dragging in the mud, but they are still waiting and being worn as they are
I wonder if it’s Prince William flying this helicopter? It’s an air sea rescue helicopter from RAF Valley where he is stationed. I don’t suppose I will ever find out why it was hovering over the river, too far off for me to be be able to see it properly. But if you look at the bottom right hand corner there’s a lifeboat as well, so it must be someone in trouble. Such a pity I don’t recognise the two with the pushchair who had a grandstand view.
To finish, last night’s sunset.
