My husband has taken the dog for a walk, no one is in the house except Charlie and me. So I can log in and write a post or maybe two.
In amongst all that is going on here I spent a half day at the State Quilt Show on the Embroierers'Guild stand. There were some lovely pieces from the collection on show. This is a sampler done by Mabel, who was one of the founders of our Guild. She has used a curtaining off-cut to stitch on. Who say's you have to use good linen, I really like this one.
A simple knotted edge at the bottom and a blanket stitch variation on the edges.
I keep thinking that I will get all the preparations for the sale of this house finished today and then I find another long list of things to do. We had all the photography done for the advertising only to be very unhappy with the results and had to have it all redone. I think the agent is finding us very demanding clients. Usually they take shots to make the rooms look bigger. In our house the rooms are so big it is hard to fit them in the camera frame. There is just no way to fit the whole room in the shot. However some of the photos really do give a good impression of the size. Even so in this image a quarter of the room is behind the camera. After seeing these images I think I might invest in some more lenses for my camera.
What am I going to do with all this furniture when we sell the house?
