|Poor darlings...awaiting my attention.....*sigh*......|
What a way to start the week....sidelined from a work in progress. I'll explain in a moment.
First thing; manners.
Welcome to the intrepid souls who signed on as followers of late, mainly in my *extremely well-mannered thoughts* (snarf!) about my blog and blogs in general! I did not scare you off. GOOD. You'll love it here!!!
Okay back to my work.
I have on my flannel padded work table a liturgical stole half done. Perhaps past the halfway point. It has received extra gold threads because I don't sit still well when I wait. (boon to the recipient) But never the less, I cannot move forward.
I am waiting for the metal-work crosses to arrive so I can proceed. These have to be sewn on at a certain stage in the process, and before that, they are encrusted with pearls and gold beads.
Everything else is in place, even the lining cut, basted and ready to sew in.
And I sit.
I have cleaned and rearranged the studio with my paint supplies back in my basement studio, I have purged, I am putting together a box for donation......I am not a good *waiter*. I want those crosses NOW and am about to throw a hissy fit. (they were ordered in time that I should have had this DONE and OUT, but the monastery that runs the company is civilized and works on a European schedule--they take a months vacation and anything ordered then? can you say LIMBO???)
I can't yell at a priest......*sigh*
So I suppose I may be either blogging about NOTHING to fill my time, or more than likely, redrafting some stole patterns to accommodate different fabric lengths. More than one pattern is good, although when these are done, they all look so very different. I make them and I still can't believe how the fabric transforms, and then more so when worn in the pulpit.
Perception is everything.
Now I am off to see what I can start this week to get myself into trouble or check off my list and say *WHOOOOO-HOOOO!!!! ACCOMPLISHED!*
Thank you all for the input on the blog~~it is interesting to see I am not the only one who has a somewhat evolving blog, and that it is sufficient to interest others to read.
And I do hope you learn something here, even if it's get your cross appliques ordered before the Order goes on vacation!!!
And with that, I bid you
