Remember my post here about my wonderful RuleSteady?
My Fibro is getting worse and I am not sure if I could cut fabric without it anymore. It is a very expensive bit of kit, particularly by the time it is shipped over to England from Australia.
I dropped it. It broke. I was devastated.
I unscrewed the wooden handle and this is when I saw it was broken on both sides.... I had nothing to lose at this point.
Last Friday we went to lunch at the Bell at Skenfrith. I had been told it was pretty round there. It was magical. We have so many magical places round here, I love it. I took my camera but the batteries were flat but DH had his phone. Heaven save me from iPhones. I have no idea why, but on every photo it took eleven shots in rapid sucession.
I shall share what I managed to take.
I imagine when it is warm, the temptation to get into the river is irresistable.
Such a pretty place. I would love to live there but the flood risk would worry me.

But let me start with a progress report. It might not look like much but there are hours and hours of work in there.

So I took a little break and thought I would show you.
Start by drawing your grid out on your fabric using your preferred marking method.
When you get more of them done, the ellipse shapes take on the form of a grid as they puff up.

The weather has changed here in the Forest. Suddenly it feels like spring. I go to sleep listening to the sheep with their lambs and wake to the dawn chorus.

This is what it was like last weekend.
ps the flowers aren't there to make it look pretty, just to stop it sliding off the desk.
