Just look at these gorgeous threads that arrived from Germany.
And guess what?
They have been named after me. How wicked is that.
They are from Anne Lange who also has other threads named after different textile artists: Sandra Meech, Richard Box, Marilyn Pipe, Janet Edmonds.
So I'm not totally unique but what an honour to have threads named after you. :)

This year is the first year I have been unable to go to Ally Pally since the very first show. I have all the programmes from the shows (how sad is that) but will be missing the one for 2014. 
Back, legs and knees have been really bad,finding it very difficult to walk and I just couldn't face it. Finally went to the doctor, thought it was either Sciatica or hips but he pulled my legs about for some time and decided it is Lumbago - what an old fashioned word that is. Anyway, he has given me some really strong painkillers and advised me to walk more to loosen up the muscles. They are beginning to work already so maybe, just maybe I might make it on Sunday.
Trying to convince husband that I really do need to get me a puppy very soon to encourage me to walk more and of course it really needs to be two Labs so that they can keep each other company. Still got a way to go with that one!

Your threads are beautiful, and what an honour to have them named after you! Hope your back issues are soon resolved and that you can convince your hubby about the puppies. Perhaps you could just have them follow you home?

Those threads are gorgeous. Lumbago can bee so painful and I hope you are beginning to feeling more comfortable. I would love to go to Ally Pally but just know my feet and legs would never last the day.

Lovely to see you back on here Lynda - saw Viv at Ally Pally on Weds and she said you had back problems - poor you, hope it improves soon xx

The threads are just gorgeous, I hope they are helping you feel more comfortable. Back pain is horrible. I'm sure a couple of puppies will make you feel much better, ask Wendy ;-)
