I decided to take a day off work today to go Christmas shopping - I have had so few days off I was really looking forward to some me time and gift buying time. I hate shopping for myself but I just love buying for other people, but what a wasted day! Got up very early, drove for 1.5 hours, found a parking space no problem, shops had only been open for 30 minutes! The problem was I could find nothing I wanted to buy! When I say nothing I mean NOTHING. Shops here are full of such tat at Christmas time. Wish I was overseas - I remember shopping in real German markets and having the gifts wrapped beautifully as a matter of course. The UK should take a look at Continental Europe at this time of year!! Arrived back home at 4.30pm. I should have stayed home and been creative instead. Now I feel tired and grumpy!!
Something did cheer me up though - and that was today's lovely post! THANKS Fiona - this is such a clever piece of work. I love the way the beads at the bottom move around and the weaving is delightful. This is truly stunning! You say you used a lot of the fabric - do have enough for yourself or would you like some more??
