  1. Yesterday
  2. and be Mistress of All Places to the temporary work place !
  3. Yes, on all counts - better combining work/play, and definite that when faced with the choice of lounging in a fabulous bedroom or exploring a meadow, the furry one will go for the meadow
  4. isn't it better than having to work through one of the stays and have all the time off on the other, I think. It will be funny to suddenly live the house next door They have a fabulous bedroom (which I will be allowed to use) - it has three window walls leading out into a beautiful meadow. I suspect it will mean the furry alarm clock will go off even earlier.
  5. Last week
  6. and an excellent plan to combine work and time off
  7. Absolutely. We will go back for two weeks in July and two weeks in August I wont have quite as much vacation time left, so I probably will work from there during the first week and then take time off for the second week.
  8. Jette WOULD make a perfect village dog Of course, she would assume she owned the village.
  9. I was just thinking of you! Oh nice to be in that parallel universe again
  10. so, Jette and I went to stay with at my brother's for a few days and now we are back and I am back at work. I really didn't want to come back. And Jette would make a perfect village dog, too.
  11. Earlier

    something like that they are puppets for Girls' Day in March, the Hina Matsuri Festival. She is the Empress, he is the Emperor already artistic in real, iterated *a lot* to achieve this weaving. a Japanese lady went to Bruges to learn Flemish lace and I worked her pattern
  16. The arty thing is gorgeous - i went there before i came here. The Sunday was well deserved, i think

    oh, I have a funny story about one of my craft thingies. A few years ago I made a family Christmas present out of an embroidered saying, something my grandma used to say. "Buten Huus dickt nich", it's in low German and means, "What you eat away from home, isn't fattening". I made the design and stitched it with a hot needle as it was rather late (as usual), took a photo, had it printed in about half the size of the original and then framed one for everybody. I put a sticker on the back saying it was a digital print of an original embroidery on linen (like you would do for an exhibition ). It was all very tongue in cheek. the frame was a cute Ikea one, in gold A few weeks ago I went to visit one of my brothers and we were talking about making things, and my sil says she always admired how I had done that embroidery in these really tiny stitches. I was, "Well, they were actually rather normal size". She goes to get the frame and I realize they never noticed it was a photo They still didn't want to believe it ... It was so funny. This is the original, hanging in my kitchen. I made it into postcards, too. (I guess I posted it here somewhere when it was new, but I am too lazy to look for it )

    that is such a lovely idea, to make it in her memory. A samurai and his lady, right? Or the tenno and his lady? Yes, framing finished work is always so satisfying

    I made the picture from its diagram, a personal challenge in memory of the Japanese friend who had wanted to make it. But she passed too soon. Still, I felt joy in the doing, I think she would have been pleased

    Months to make the fiddly-looking woven picture ... an hour to find Honorable Background...a few minutes to fiddle it into a frame. I liked doing that best
  22. 👍 yes! ( I wonder if my iPod emo shows?) to a good Sunday I framed an arty thing. To post at A n C
  23. I was offline for the weekend, it just happened that way. Yesterday there was a lot of smallish stuff to do, and today I gave myself the day off and pottered around with paper and yarn and books. And went out with the doggy, that goes without saying So after a frustrating saturday I had a really nice sunday
  24. oh I didn't see that!
