I feel my mojo a-rising. Despite a frankly poo week- or perhaps because of it- I feel the need to get back in the grove, to seriously nail the City and Guilds work- to cross some stuff of the list. This sample got me 'machine eyelets' ticked off. I am not a natural machine-er. I am, if I'm honest, a bit of a control freak and my lack of skill means that the machine controls me. I quite like this sample though and boy is machine work Quick- well quicker than buttonholing eyelets by hand! I am waiting to put a fantastic fabric behind this sample and add some beads and hand stitching. My thoughts are turning to what my next direction might be after the course is finished. I think I probably need to register as a business to extend my options and I also think I need to put together some small workshops to offer people like the WI and maybe guides/scouts. I think some voluntary stuff could be cool. So can I ask- if you are a maker do-er are you officially registered and all? Is it a whole heap of trouble? Do you have sleepless nights over the paperwork etc? Which way next I wonder? Exciting times! x
Thanks for visiting my blog. I am always glad to make contact with others who maybe pick up confetti from party tables, keep all those little packets of spare beads and buttons that come attatched to new clothes, who stroke fabric ......for hours...whilst gazing into the middle distance. (I cannot believe I am the only one who is maybe half woman/half magpie!) Please take the opportunity to have a glance at my latest 'fiddlings'. Enjoy fellow fibre freaks!
