Additions & Replys.

Just a quick blog today as time is flying by again. I have managed to add some favourite blogs and I replied to all my welcomers. You have all been so helpful with hints and tips, I think I have the picture thing sorted. I was so tired on Monday I had forgotten what I had done the first time. I shall attempt a few photos next blog but my brain is all 'techno-ed' out.

Retail Therapy Accomplished.

Well, I have dropped Helen off after our shopping trip to Carmarthen and only got home after 5pm. I didn't mean for it to be a whole day out as I only needed to pick a lampshade up from Laura Ashley and have a spot of lunch but the day just took it's course. I did not do too much damage to the plastic but M&S Food always gets me. So here I am now well into the evening attempting to reply to everyone after feeding animals and hubby and topping myself up with copious amounts of Redbush tea -- if I had a couple of glasses of wine I'd fall asleep.

Once again I have to thank everyone for their welcome and please be patient with me on the replying front. Most of you I have been lurking at for a little while now and I now have a few new blogs to catch up with -- I have to say Kitty your blog rocks, the speakers on my computer are quite powerful, so I think the people staying in our holiday cottages thought I was having a party. I am now going to have to learn to put music on my blog as well as everything else I can't do.

I shall now attempt another picture, it is of another corset I made which is quite simple with some lace made on water soluble fabric.

Now I did not mean for my picture to be at the beginning of the blog but I have just spent ½hr trying to put it here and I am wilting after my day, so I shall leave it where it is. I shall try again tomorrow with another picture.

So Excited.

This is a quick blog to say thank-you to all of you for your welcome, I am gob smacked. I have to go out for the day, as I am taking a friend for some retail therapy but I will be back later to say more. Have a great day everyone --- I can't wait to get back and try to work out how to put up some favourite blogs.

So This Is It!!!!

I have been a lurker for about 6 months, I really didn't think I had it in me but it just goes to show you can never judge a book by its cover.

It is all Maggie Grey's fault, I put her blog page up as my Home page so every time I log on --- there it is. Of course now I am hooked and slightly obsessed. I never for one moment thought I would join in, as I look at all the wonderful things shown on all these great blogs and think my few pictures will not be near as inspiring. I was not able to enter Maggie's draw or wish her Happy Birthday, as I did not know what to do and then I saw on Dogdaisychains blog that Margaret was attempting her first blog. So, after checking Maggik Moments out I got inspired to try ---- and here we are. I don't know how to link or highlight anything or add anything exotic, but at sometime during this blog I shall attempt a picture.

One of my worries is that I won’t be able to keep the blogging up, as I seem to waste so much time on the computer doing one thing or another. So either I will have a great blog and no embroidery, or the occasional blog and hopefully some work to show.

How do you all manage it? My days seem to fly by and I seem to have nothing much to show for it. If there was a Degree for displacement therapy I would have a first. Maybe this blog is a bit of therapy – I hope I won’t end up boring you with it.

I shall stop ‘wittering’ on now and attempt my picture.

Wow! I did it. This is the very first corset I made, it was for my City & Guilds Part 1 (equiv. level 2 I think) in Creative Embroidery. By the way I call it 'In My Dreams' as that is the only time it will ever fit me.

I shall say 'Bye-Bye' for now and with my new found confidence I shall attempt one or two comments.
