After waiting for a couple of months to get back to the RSN, I was finally booked in last weekend and was so looking forward to putting the finishing touches to my crewel work – before hopefully mounting. Unfortunately (and I blame the little ones at school entirely), I chose this week to be ill! I managed to drive in and spend the morning in class, but as soon as lunch hit – that was it! All I managed to stitch were a few French knots around the head of my bird. Owen demonstrated feather stitch in the tail, which came out immediately as I didn’t like it. Spent the rest of the week moping!
On the plus side I finally got my pass – so now can get into class early and not have to wait to be escorted through the palace. Christmas was also on show at the Palace.
