I decided last Friday that I would reintroduce Fabricate Friday, brought down to the dining room all the stuff associated with Module 4 and went through everything, rereading all the notes in my module note book/diary. It helped and made me decide all the more that I would keep to my original plan of the fan.
Saturday was busy with the family, so today with homework to be done and DH at work - thanks to the weather - I was able to move on with some time to myself. I have been finding it demoralising seeing all my Distant Stitchers posting their work and having nothing to show. It was the kick up the bum I needed.
I may have posted this before as the drawing was made in July. The fan will be in the style of a "Jenny Lind" brise fan
These two photos show a drawing to scale of the frame which will hold the handmade paper with embedded embroidery and a practise square seen again below
If you are wondering where the Photo a Day as gone and whether I only made it to Day 5, I thought it best not to bore you ridged with the photos and just post a grouping of five or six as I go along. Then again I might create a new blog just for PaD. Oh and yes I have been remembering to take one each day - trust me!

And to begin my library review here is the first candidate.
As usual I can't remember the real reason for purchasing it from Amazon.
It seemed a good idea at the time and I think I was going to use the doodle aspect in a project.
Anyway I shall read it and make something this week and see if it still will be useful
Some times something grabs your attention when you least expect it!
and thanks to Sky live pause I was able to get a "hard" copy! This particular backdrop was in a "Not the Nine O'Clock News" sketch which was on tv the other evening. It looked painted or printed, but what an interesting quilt it would make. The thing is I can't for the life of me remember what Rowan Atkinson was going on about I was too distracted!
