All Work and No Play ....

I’m feeling rather grumpy today.

I took Thursday and Friday off work to celebrate my birthday. I have had a lovely weekend and am not ready for it to end but I had to return to work this morning. :-(

On top of that, many of my Japanese embroidery friends are in Bournemouth this week for the September Japanese Embroidery UK class. I never attend the September class but I always long to be there with them. :-( :-(

But the main reason for my grumpiness is that I over slept and did not have any time to bead before work today. This is the first morning that I have not been able to squeeze in even a few minutes. :-( :-( :-(

To give myself a quick beading fix and hopefully lift the glums, here are a couple of pictures of some of the beading I did yesterday. :-)

I'm never ready for any weekend to end! Your beadwork is just lovely! I'm afraid I don't have the patience to do much more that a few beads on smocking.

A little stitching is a great way to "centre" oneself before leaping into the day. I always intend to, and never manage it, so I know exactly how you feel!

Lovely work,Carol-Anne.
I've only been to Bournemouth once for Japanese Embroidery and had a great time...
Just keep beading.

Hi, I'm French. I knew your blog by Lutine ( I love your embroidery, especially embroidery Japanese. I also see that you are more type of embroidery. I myself am of Indian embroidery in recent years but I've taken recently. I'll start an internship in the province to initiate me in November as the Japanese embroidery.
I will continue to follow you on your blog. See you soon

PS: sorry for my English, I do the translation by google
