Gosh, what a busy week! I've been working each day preparing for my first workshop, getting everything ready for my lovely group of hooky ladies who will come to my studio tomorrow. I've been winding, winding, winding lots of yarn cakes, soaking up all that glorious colour. It's not been a bad job, quite satisfying actually. I see now that I am a little short of greens, darnit, I should have ordered more green. But I made a yarn rainbow today! I had this tiny bit of time to myself in the studio after our knit and natter session this morning and I arranged my yarn cakes. Deeply satisfying.
In quiet moments during my week, I've been winding all my odds and ends of leftover yarn onto little cardboard bobbins. We'll use these to do bits of embroidery on the birdie and crochet up some small flowers and leaves to decorate the bower. I have been bagging up stuffing and eyes, printing out sheets of patterns and instructions and hoping (really, really hoping) that all my visiting lovelies will enjoy a wonderful time tomorrow. I am very much looking forward to the day, but confess I am ever so slightly nervous. It's good to tiptoe out of one's comfort zone every so often, isn't it?
