Firstly thanks you so much for all your kind, supportive and encouraging comment to the last post!
I really appreciate it and it has helped me to place some of the uneasy feelings I was having about writing tutorials. I love this wonderful Blogging community ! xx
As promised I wanted to share some of this things Ive been working on all last week.
Continuing with the hooped ladies with owls I wanted to return to my old interest of using old photographs as the starting point for a piece. I had a few gems for a recent carboot sale which were perfect subject for what I wanted to try.
I think Ive worked through my 'hooped lady with owl' obsession for this week! I am feeling the need for a bit more texture going on and some slow stitching. I really want to start a patchwork quilt (just for me and our bed because we need one in the winter) so I am thinking I will combine that desire along with all the new dyed samples I have been making and try a few samplers ideas, trying out some patchwork, layering, slow stiches and machine embroidery.....well thats what Im thinking...not sure what will appear.
Its been a bank holiday in the UK today and we had a very succesful day at a carboot sale, selling ( & trying not to buy to much!) we made a huge amount of money for us, selling stuff that would otherwise have just gone to the charity shop. the princely sum of £70 is going to start our new tent fund! ready for some outdoor fun in the summer.....I picked up some lovely bits of printed stuff, a great music score from the 1940s, 1001 patchwork patterns! and an amazing book entitled "Enquire within upon everything" printed in 1870!!! I shall scan some very soon its fab.
Hope your weeks have all started well
