The writing is a little faded but the message is loud and clear.My Dad gave this to me many,many years ago.I think it needs to be hung in a prominent place, where it will jog me along every day.Thanks, Dad.
my collection of batik fabrics called for something special, and Shirley Goodwin’s pattern, “ Monet’s Hexagons” seemed perfect.
A few changes in the selection and away I went.The usual interruptions, Housework,laundry, Doctor’s visit, another one next week, and gradually the shapes were cut, placed and sewn.
Quite a lot of fiddling to find the best place to hang and photograph. it is not quite as dark as the photo shows. Lots of experiments with gold,yellow,and variegated thread, before I choose a brighter metallic thread for the sun and rays, so far just one ray is done. You can see this one, it is at 6.35, on the clock. I used a single buttonhole stitch, number 45 on my Bernina, this seemed to go very nicely, with super fine iron on interfacing just behind the sun and rays.I use a special needle for metallic threads, and ..NO breaking thread !!!
This has to be finished next Monday, as it is a gift No dawdling or hesitation this time.Just Get On and Finish It !!!
Quotations of the day, both from Edward Young, 1683-1765
this is from “ The Love of Fame”
Some for renown on scraps of learning dote,
And think they grow immortal as they quote.
And this is from “ Night Thoughts”
Procrastination is the thief of time.
