Sticky, evening in and stitch over.

1. To play around with white glue and scraps of paper.

2. Katie is home alone, so she comes round to have supper and watch Time Team with us (apparently she can't watch it at home without Jules commenting about how they've just thrown coins down the hole for the archaeologists to find). She brings a bunch of lilies of the valley -- they are a bit of a pest in her garden, but it's easy to forgive them for their sweet scent and lacy bells.

3. I'm loving Di Van Niekerk's ribbon embroidery -- if you make a mistake, stitch over it, because it all adds texture. I need to take some more pictures, as I've progressed a bit since this was taken.

  1. I just read that the original idea of 3BT is from here.
    This week I take part to the Finnish version of your Idea, Three Happy Thoughts a day for one week. Today was my second day.
    Let's think beautiful :)

  2. Of course people don't throw coins in a hole on Time Team. They bury "ancient" swords on top of modern wire! ;) The Time Team hoaxer episode was a great bit of archaeological fraud investigation.
