One year into the new year and himself and myself are already sick. Ok, it's nothing serious but we've both got the really disgusting cough and cold that's going about and it's so debillitating! So far we've missed a new year holiday and a party tonight so we're not happy bunnies. Who knew a cough could get you so low?
OK. Moan over, we are on the mend after all. Well, almost. Before the germs hit we had a quiet but enjoyable Christmas with some friends. It seems a long time ago now. Fortunately I got lots of chocolate which I've heard is good for coughs so I will have to force myself to eat it. Cough!
This last week in between feeling rotten I've been working on a banner for an event at Norwich Forum in February. I found out about the event through The Saori Shed at Diss where I am hoping to go next week if this cold is under control.
I tried a few new things with this banner. I havn't worked text or shapes before so thought I'd have a go.
I've also incorporated a floating weft, as it's called. You carry the weft (cross thread) from row to row so that it hangs loose.
