As some of you may or may not know, I'm working with the wonderful Nefer Kane on a new art doll she's making. My bit is beading some material and hoping I got it right. Having been quite happy beading a few 'components' over the last few days, I've now ventured way out of my comfort zone and put the material on a frame. Today has been spent embroidering a few beads onto it, and changing the original design beyond all recognition - not enough curvy bits. The result of this is that my shoulders are killing me! The tension of holding the frame and starting something strange are taking their toll with a vengeance - and what sympathy do I get? Freya jumping up and reminding me that cat biscuits have been invented yet she doesn't seem to have any, and Loki lying in a heap and yowling because it's been a whole hour since I fed him. Nina's been ironing, so no complaints there. My life and clothes are at stake. Back to cat abuse then.............and yes, those are two pots of catnip in the background. Poor cats.
