It's been ages since my last post, tiredness seems to have consumed me just of late!
I have not been idle though and here's the latest of my envelopes.
I fortunately found that two of the oldest envelopes that were in my stash were exactly the same size, so I sewed them together. I like the shape the the two envelopes make. The writing is just exquisite and the dates are 1864 and 1868. I have added a hook and eye inspired by karen's use of hooks and eyes.
I could embroider these all day everyday, but somehow feel that I should be shoving the boat out a bit further and trying something new on the envelope front.
I think what is happening in my head, is that I know I am finishing work in three weeks and mentally I am telling myself I will be able to do that when I finish for the summer and it seems my system has closed on me. Also the garden calls to me, I am obsessed with plants and buying/planting them. Then in late summer the obsessive phase leaves and I am content to just potter. I think it's something to do with spring fever. Apologies for my strange rambling. I will close now and go and take a pill x
