The warp cloth is kunin felt which I intend to zap later to reveal the backing material underneath. I have bonded the piece onto some cotton curtain material but it's too dark to photograph now. Before I zap it I will be stitching onto the surface - as usual I don't have any particular plan for this - various ideas are floating round my brain. Knowing me I will just pick a thread colour and start and then make it up as I go along! Since it's supposed to be for the Bead Journal I will eventually add some beading but for the moment I just want something to stitch.
I am looking forward to tomorrow as my friend Ann and I are popping up to Newark to a new (to this venue) Art and Craft Fair (more spending)! You can find information about it here. There should be about 90 exhibitors including some stands selling fibres and yarns so we're hoping for a reasonable day out. DH has been instructed to draw some money from the cash machine while he's at work! I'll report back with any goodies. :)
I got the result of my blood test today and, joy of joys, I've got to take iron tablets! Great! At least iron deficiency explains why I have been struggling so badly. My GP thinks that it has crept up on me since I stopped eating all the things that contain iron as they mostly also contain fibre or are harder to digest. We all know what iron tablets can do to your gut so I am going to have a jolly time trying to balance the effects of the ferrous sulphate against keeping my gut happy. Happy days! (I should say I am really grateful that there is a reason for my feeling so rough and it can be sorted fairly easily).
