Thank you for looking in.
Lots of fiddling ( designing ) this week and more wasted sheets of inkjet printing material. Very frustrating, as it is the wrong time of the year to take new photographs of harvest fields. I started book 1 in Aug/Sept 2014 and it was about Spring planting. This book is about Harvest and I started it in Feb 2015. I have not quite got the timing right. Will I manage the Winter book in Nov/Dec.? I hope so.
One is lighter than I want and the other has the machines in the wrong place. I will look back over some other workbooks as I know I have another photo which should work.
Moving things on.
Have worked out the finish for little bottles of seeds.
I have put out the word I am looking to source oat seeds but not porage oats as someone ( who will remain nameless, but you know who you are.) suggested.
Scrolls worked out, this took lots of fiddling.
They can be opened and read but it will take a little effort to untie. I like the idea one will have to work a little to read the written word.
The poppy was supposedly given to Ceres, to help her sleep, when she was grieving for her daughter Proserpine. The poppy is also a symbol of her tears.
This is what is written inside the scroll.
This page is almost finished. I will embroider some words across 2 pages.
3 pages finished, 2 more started so if my maths are correct I have 1 more to start on.
Thought I had finished inside hinges but not 100% happy with it so this will probably change.
Plan for next week
1 Embroider words " The Wheel of the Year has turned once more."
2 Source oat seeds
3 Finish pages already begun.
4 Think about last page
Look in next Sunday to see how work is progressing
My threads are now a tangled jumble as the stitching on Lughnasadh progresses Should spend an evening
Dare not show my desk.
