I wanted to finish the two cushion covers I set out to make while I was on holiday before I went back to work on Monday. So today I did and here they are! They’re now going to my Mum’s for the zips to be sewn in (I never have learned to set a zip…) and to be stored til August and G’s birthday.
Apart from that and staggering amounts of washing, the other thing I did today was hang the painting we bought in Australia. It’s called ‘Star or Seven Sister’s Dreaming’ by an Aboriginal artist called Alma Nungarrayi Granites. We were told by the owner of the art gallery where we bought it that only women of the Nungarrayi tribe in the Northern Territory are permitted to paint this story. I think it’s just beautiful.
And tomorrow there’s a threat that I might go with some friends to the Creative Crafts Show at the Bath & West Showground, where there will be at least THREE yarn stalls! Yay!
