Yesterday I was browsing MJ's blog, and really fell in love with her Mother's Day start - Coffin Buzz by Plum Street Samplers.
The phrase on the sampler really rung true:
Here lies my sleeping body as lifeless as can be.
If thou shouldst bring me coffee I would spring to life with glee.
After all, I'm an archaeologist who works with skeletons day in day out, plus at work I have a reputation for being a bit of a coffee fiend - if there's none in the pot at 11am I'm not a happy bunny, and I schedule all my meetings around the 11am coffee break! (I'll share an amusing coffee related story when I have some more time).
So I went off in search of the pattern, and was delighted to see it was a freebie!
Last night was our lace night, Sonia and Louise came over to mine. I was too tired to think about lace making, so instead I dug through my stash for suitable fabbie (32ct Summer's End, a Sugar Maple Fabric which I bought of Kate from Sparklies when she was having a stash clearout). We all looked at several different floss options, and decided WDW 'Chestnut' worked well with the fabric. And then I started stitching. There's nothing like a spur of the moment start is there? Sadly I don't have a photo yet.
