I received the next part of the Red Manor House BOM this week and this month we have three borders to add. The first red border is on
and so yesterday I was working on the Irish Chain border which comes next. This is where I started
and this is where I ended up!
Now to get them attached.
Cheryll has invited us all to join her again next week - a coronavirus bonus FNwF's!
The Community Stitch Challenge this week was set by Cas Holmes and was this
· In response to social distancing and self isolation, Cas is asking you to find a meaningful object from around the home that evokes memories as a starting point for a textile project.
· Next step is to create a small collage background using simple straight stitches to attach bits of fabric and paper from your stash to a base.
· Then using the object you’ve chosen as inspiration cut out a shape in fabric and apply it to the background you’ve created.Finally use hand stitch techniques to embellish and bring your piece to life.
This was the piece that I worked on
I based this on my home and garden which have many special memories for me. I used some of the slow dyed fabrics and threads from a couple of years ago that used stuff from the garden and my pantry and stitched them down onto a piece of batting so that there would be some extra texture. I then added our house number, the sunflower that welcomes you to our door and some flowers to represent the garden.
I loved working on this.
Have a good week - stay home and stay safe!
