We made it home yesterday after a very long, tiring, and arduous trip (heavy rain, construction on the highway, way too many people trying to go way too fast on crowded roads). I'm still tired.
But, while we were gone, some happy mail arrived.
The scrims for Gardenesque, a teaching project from Jackie du Plessis, arrived.
Gardenesque was a class I took on my last visit to Salty Yarns in 2019. It feels like a century ago. I ordered the scrims then, knowing it would take time for them to arrive--and if you look at the detail, you'll understand why there's a wait. It is well worth it, in my opinion.
And this definitely determines which of Jackie's projects I'll work on next.
I need to catch up on my Tudor Embroidery class before I pull Gardenesque out of the stash. First, though, I need to take a nap. I think I need a vacation from my vacation.
