Hello readers, thanks for joining me this evening. I am looking forward to the Bank Holiday weekend, although unless the weather plays nice there may not be much to look forward to. This week was all about the colour red. I was inspired by pictures of Hungarian dancers in national costume to make a piece using my latest love for soutache.
My upbringing has given me a horror of this. My sister and I used to be dressed in identical clothes - my mother was obsessed with a need to dispense 'fairness' and bought us both the exact same items when we went shopping. It probably seemed like too much trouble to let us wear the outfits on separate occasions, (she was a working mum and therefore any aspersions I cast about laziness need to be taken with a pinch of salt) so we ended up looking like a pair of twins, one of whom (me) was eating all the food.
I made a couple of necklaces for the lady from Bangalore to choose from.
Have a lovely weekend and I'll catch you next Friday, same time, same place
