Hello readers! I've lost the camera again! Mildly concerning if it doesn't turn up, but mostly really annoying as I can't post pics.
The star of this post is MrC. He has been renovating and painting in the shop after hours and before opening, transforming rather dated cream pegboard into white slat board - SUCH an improvement!
He is very much looking forward to his new shirts, and due to me thinking that today was the 19th not the 12th, I have all of my cushions made for next weekend's fair, and thusly, I have time to make his nibs a shirt.
I love it when that happens! Like being gifted a whole week of extra time.
Tonight we chose a contrast fabric for piping and lining the collar and stay - a fat quarter from my stash, So, nothing is stopping me from starting except a strong desire to take photos of the process.
Also today, we received a copy of Love kills Slowly, a book of tattoo art cross stitch patterns. I've suggested that MrC might like to choose one as his first foray into the art. There's nothing like first hand experience to understand a skill, and counted cross stitch is a good one for Mr Math Brain.
So behold my beloved - working like a skivvy, stitching and dressing flamboyantly. And soon to be bald - he is playing John the husband who dies of leukaemia in the stage version of Calsndar Girls soon.
I shall miss his sideburns...
