Listening: to Radio 3 on ‘earworms’. I may come to regret this.
Reading: taking a break from Terry Pratchett (only another 55 books to go from the library e-book stock). I’ve switched to Lindsey Davis temporarily.
Watching: looking forward to the next episode of Lucy Worsley’s programmes on opera. I’m not a fan of opera, but this programme put it in a social context, which made it more interesting. Still not sure I could sit through one, though.
Making: I decided that I would cast off the shawl after the next repeat, but now I’ve got to that point, I’m procrastinating. The fact that there are nearly 300 stitches may have something to do with it.
I’ve finished the running stitch samples for now. The fringed one, on rug canvas, prompted some 3D experiments. No photos yet, I’m not sure they are ready for publication.
The next lot of samples are couching, one of my favourite techniques, because you can experiment with all sorts of odd threads.
Feeling: so-so. We had an enjoyable outing last week, which cheered me up. We went to the ‘Radical Craft’ exhibition at Walford Mill, which was interesting and inspirational, had a pleasant lunch, then on to Kingston Lacy for an installation called ‘Exile’, and, of course, tea and cake.
Since then I’ve been sleeping badly and brooding about family problems.
Anticipating: going to see the Kaffe Fassett exhibition at Mottisfont. We got as far as the cafe a couple of weeks ago before being called away for a family problem. Better luck next time, we hope.
