Here I am again!

New dragonfly

Our new dragonfly

I am sorry I have been “missing” since the Festival of Quilts, but there has just been no time to stop and chat! I hope this week will be better organised and I will have chance to stay in touch. I thought you would like to see the dragonfly who visited on Thursday. He spend most of the morning drying his wings and let me get really close with the camera

Weekend Hussif class

My Hussif Group

We have just completed a lovely weekend class where my group of students created a very pretty beaded hussif. A hussif was the name given to the useful folder or bag used by the matron of the house, often used to house embroidery. The term “housewife” originates from the “Hussif” It was common for sailors at sea and some servicemen to keep their  mending kit in a hussif.

Beaded Scissor Hussif

You can see from the picture above the hussif was created using unbleached linen, hand painted silk and tiny glass beads. At a later date, this project will be availble as a complete kit.

Biggles

Biggles who is not allowed on the furniture!

During the weekend class, I caught both dogs enjoying their home comforts safe in the knowledge that as we had guests they might get away with it!

the face says it all “well I’m not supposed to be here but 5 minutes won’t hurt will it”, big doggy eyes looking at you.
