I’m sure you can relate to this, you wake up far too early on a Sunday morning, then lie there thinking of the things you need to do instead of leaving the warm bed and getting on with them. Easy to do if they are chores, but when you have a new passion, there is no way you can doze off again.
This explains why I was in my studio at 6.30am this morning, still in PJ’s, making another lampshade! Obviously I have little self control. I have already made two for an embroidery class, but then a new collection of fabric arrived from Moda with the most glorious poppies on and I knew I had to make another lampshade soon.
The kits are so easy and there is no sewing of the fabric to the frame which certainly makes life easier…..it’s a little like a more refined, grown up, adult Blue Peter activity!
I’m already planning appliquéd shades for the Grandchildren’s bedroom; probably better have an early night tonight.
