The problem with both of the above is that they need space and electrcity and that's fine when working at home. However, over the last few weeks I have hardly been at home long enough to think about stitching, let alone actually do any. Sometimes I get withdrawal symptoms! My main creative outlet is dyeing, and I love this too, but it is such a luxury to hold a needle in my fingers and create. For this reason, when I know that there are going to be gaps in our selling, I carry around a piece of hand stitching. This is usually something that can be quickly folded away, so I do something that doesn't need to be hooped. I thought I'd show you my current piece.
It's a representation of a piece of coastline I know well, but there's a fair way to go yet. I don't expect it to be recognised as it is on a little visited part of the Welsh coast. If you look closely I think you can see the needle! The background is Silk Scrimble and the yarn is, of course, Sassa Lynne.
There won't be much stitching this week, it's time for stock-taking! Oh joy!
