I forgot to tell you about what I got up to!
(Sorry, think I've over-blogged today!)
Due to general giddiness a few days before the big day, I came over all previous and started to make a something in preparation.
I machine embroidered a blue-tit on a single glove that I bought from Hemswell for 10p (as you do!)
I didn't have a clue what it was going to become but Jessie Chorley's work was so inspirational.
A hidden broken heart...
One of the most amazing techniques I learned was how to make the little hanging loop using blanket stitch.
Can I also thank Mandy, from the very lovely indeed Daisy Moon, for showing me how to start off a blanket stitch, (something I had struggled with since Year 9!)
You are a star!
'You see, there was a lady that lived in a tower.
She needed to tell the man she loved about her true feelings.
So she gave a bird her glove to deliver, as a sign of her affection.
But the bird dropped the glove.
And so the lady died.'
(Just thought I'd tell the story behind the glove for the amusement of the Hope and Elvis ladies again!)
Well, I had been drinking from the Daniel O'Donnell Chalice of Happiness, (only tea mind you, honest!)
