Counting the days (12 sleeps) before we set off on our travels. We have the visas at last, having had to jump through hoops with the new system of outsourcing. So much easier to just rock up at at the Indian Embassy in London, with the added option of taking in exhibitions or shopping opportunities.
Meanwhile tasks to complete, and general sorting of workroom. Possibly the tidiest it gets!
Indian textiles/stitching workshops over for this year. It's amazing what clutter is shoved into files through the year. Some pieces are worth keeping, and thinking on for future projects:-
These are stitching samples, on a background of different fabrics, dye painted. It is an on going 'rag' - which appears and disappears in files or work boxes.
Chakra (wheel) - sample of kantha stitching
(Don't start me on that one!)
So today, putting the summer plants to bed and planting up winter pansies. Another shed load of leaves to deal with. The sun is shinning, it's warm, better get out there.
