I like Thankful Thursday

Sorry about no post last Thursday. It would have been a camel straw.
But this week is a lot better. So, here we are.

I have been looking for another fabric with squares or similar for another 'recording' type of fabric like I am doing with the daily bead project.
The other day when we were hanging my exhibition I saw this...

Just right. Now, which of many ideas to record?

I like these colours on my table. Just about to start working with them for my 4th Plinth piece. The next TVCT exhibition will be work inspired by one of the sculptures which has been exhibited on the Fourth Plinth in London's Trafalgar Square.

Thinking boxes at the moment

Loving working at my bead station in front of the patio window.


I like that I have got some mending done. The jacket is next. It isn't that I like mending, but I am glad to be getting a bit more space to work in...less piles of things which have been sitting round here for years.


And lastly, I like a Certain Young Man who is 29 years old today. I am very proud of him. 2 degrees, nearly finished a Masters and invited to embark on a PHD because of the research he is doing! Well Done that Man.

Hi Sandy,
WOWEE - fabulous for the birthday man, invited to embark on his PhD. Lots of work ahead of him (I helped my bestie though hers) but it sounds like it is in an area that really interests him. That will help immensely. I love getting mending done, or the piles gone anyway. Woot woot! ~smile~ Roseanne

Glad you're having a better week! And I know what you mean about the piles sitting around. I don't like mending (or some of the other miscellaneous tasks) that pile up either, but sometimes I think that getting them done clears not only physical space, but mental space/anxiety that I didn't even know was there....

I don't like mending but do help my adult kids out with it. Why should they pay exorbitant prices to an alterations person? It's crazy what they charge here. Hope you are having a better week. mary in Az

What an accomplished your son is!!! Glad things are calming down for you. Have a wonderful holiday!

Sally Hurley said...

So many beads! Two degrees for your son. That's impressive. Doesn't it feel good to complete mending?

Happy Birthday what an accomplished young man! Love your fabric.

I love 'working' while looking out the window .... my cats would love your beads, and then they would be on the floor!

Congratulations to you and your son!

What a lovely bead station. And kudos for mending and especially for what your young man has achieved. Good luck to him!

oh yes, sitting before an open window, doing handwork... love.
How proud you must be of your son! He values education, as you've brought him up to do, and you value him. Those are beautiful colors to build on...
