'If you make happiness your goal, then you're not going to get to it… The goal should be an interesting life."

Going and coming and coming and going …

and if you know the rest of the quote you can finish it off for yourself, although that bit doesn't apply here.

[If you don’t know the quote I suggest you get yourself a copy of ‘Blazing Saddles’ and give yourself a treat.]

Which is a long-winded preamble to saying that it’s been a busy day – and it’s not over yet.

Dentist, hygienist  and hospital for him [and for me because  I'm having to be chauffeur] -  gym for me – and again in about 2 hours.

Apart from a wander up the road to the local shops, tomorrow should be much quieter, thank goodness.IMG_9278

I did find time to make a sketchbook for Module 1 - ‘Drawing Studies’. Can’t use a boring old bought one, can I? This was made from a battered sort of box thing that a book was delivered in, sprayed with the last of my black spray paint, which is why it is a bit patchy, and then a dollop of gold webbing spray  - love that stuff. The stitching is yet another variation of a running stitch binding.

The little one is a dos-a-dos I made a while ago, which I’m using for the notes for Module 3 - ‘Fabric & Stitch’ – which has two teachers, so I’m using one end for Sue’s notes, the other for Terrie’s. I said that all books find their use eventually.


Speaking of books – I'm getting to the end of the CT sketchbook. This image isn’t very clear – but the left hand side is a drizzle of a rather odd, and probably infuriating to knit with, knitting yarn sewn into a plastic pocket – which was a lot less successful than I’d hoped. The bit on the right, which is a rubbing of it, worked much better.
