Welcome to the round up of posts you might have missed this week on Smorgasbord.
I hope you are well and have had a good week. We have been catching up on the dry month of September and first two week’s of October with inches of rain and high winds. I have a feeling Halloween will be a bit of a washout and not much fun ‘trick or treating’. To be honest we don’t get much out where we are as it is quite sparce on houses, but it was a great excuse usually to get a tub of Quality Street in just in case! I have avoided the temptation this year and of course the door bell will chime to prove me wrong.
I hope that if you are celebrating Halloween you have a great time and get more treats than tricks.
I am in the last stages of my current tapestry and my WIP. Both of which now undergoing line by line editing. For the tapestry this involves finding the odd stitch that has been missed, which is easy to do, the back of the canvas then needs tidying with loose threads being snipped back and then a steam pressing to make sure completely flat before going to the framers. I will take a photo when it returns. I have another half finished canvas of a large bowl of cherries which is next and I must say I am enjoying getting back to the stitching.
My WIP a combined poetry and short story collection should be available by the end of November and more news on that nearer the time.
