Japanese drain covers
I kid you not.
Here is Corinne who is an embroidery friend of Mum's. She came today and brought her current project with her. For the annual exhibition, the embroiderers are each preparing a panel of 6 embroideries. They are all square and are on a theme chosen by the embroiderer.
When Corinne was in Japan in May she became fascinated by the exquisite drain covers and photographed them. She has chosen 6 for her panel and is using a wide variety of stitching techniques. The one on the top of the pile on her knee is made using needle felt and includes two beautiful apples and two blue birds. It's a wonderful project and we look forward to seeing the completed panel.
Our main job today was to try to find cover for this weekend when I go to London. We are nearly there in terms of covering all the nights and the meals. People are very helpful, but some are away this weekend. It looks as though I will get away.
It has been very hot.
