I may be a holiday task master ( " you will enjoy yourself, whether you like it or not" ) but even I can't keep going all day. Every evening I would remove my tour managers hat, put down the ubiquitous umbrella and kick off my sensible sandals. While the family breathed a sigh of relief and toddled off to find some form of technology to fiddle with I would dig in to my bag and bring out my small project box.
The summer season of craft fairs coincides with the school holidays and I always feel the need to try and do something while I am away. Fortunately I've found a way of creating and relaxing. I take a box of fabric scraps, threads and embroidery floss with me wherever I go.
Some holidays are more productive than others, it all depends on how much energy I have at the end of the day and whether I'm left to my own devices. This year I didn't actually get around to making much ( a combination of good company, good wine and a really comfy bed! )
I embroidered some white cotton with a flower motif. I made them in to lavender sachets when I got home.
But the majority of what spare time I had was spent folding fabric flowers. I didn't realise how many I had made until I got home and had to decide what to do with them. Most became rings and brooches to replenish those I had sold at the last craft fair. I decided to try something new with the few that were left. What do you think?
Hmmm! Not quite sure how they will work with a Kindle....
