Greetings from lockdown France! So especially nice to able to sew virtually with all my lovely blogging friends. Thank you Wendy for getting us together - you can see who took part here on Wendy's blog.
I spent the first part of my afternoon working in my sketchbook on this 'lifted out' drawing
With this tecnique you cover the page with graphite and then use an eraser to remove the lighter parts of the picture. I enjoyed doing this much more than I expected! and am happy with the result.
Then on to a little secret stitching - sorry, not even the tiniest sneak peek!
In the evening I finished appliqueing these sheep for my Red Manor House BOM.
and as soon as this is posted I shall be getting out my machine and adding them to these doves, pots and arrows to make a border.
I ventured out to the supermarket on Thursday morning complete with signed and dated form stating why I was out and about. I went to two supermarkets. Neither was busy, busy. Both were well stocked apart from the inevitable toilet paper lol!
So, as it has been a beautiful warm sunny week here we have been busy in the garden catching up with digging and cutting back. The daffodils have almost finished and the tulips are opening up - it's lovely to see their splashes of bright colour.
Stay safe and well everyone and keep stitching.
