(Steam)Punkin’ Miss Edna May!

Gothic Arches – Guest hostess Martina – very talented and super-creative lady, chose Steampunk for us this week. Aha! It’s all a bit beyond me, really, although I do admire that style. I just have metal and a Victorian-style photo of Miss Edna May to share…

Steampunkin' Miss Edna May!

I always enjoy the challenge of stitching, but this was a bit tricky as it’s a metal snake-chain length… and I did manage to bend a needle – see the culprit watchface, bottom right? Really, the culprit was me, of course, sailing too close to the wind again!

I have been all day creating this arch due to the fact that I thought it’d be a good idea to rearrange areas of my creative space, mount some artwork for the Gallery AND complete (well, almost), an assemblage – also for the Gallery, all during the day!!

See, I just can’t settle at the moment. I have a pasta bake in the oven, DH is due home soon and then we have to pop out again to collect some odd bits of tackle that someone rang up about yesterday. Luckily, that’s locally in Bude, so we shan’t be out for long!

NB: Sometimes, when I look at what I’ve written, I realise why I’m tired!
