Many thanks to Wendy for getting us together again.
Well, I am still playing in my sketchbook - the last video in the series comes out tomorrow but I am getting behind on some of the techniques, there just is not enough time!
I do have a completed page though - well, I think it is complete any way - that I finished up Friday afternoon.
These pages are just a few of the ones that are starting to take shape - waiting for paint and glue to dry is time consuming even if it has been warm and sunny so they are able to dry outside.
In that last one the tracing paper lifts up to reveal the original picture.
Earlier this week I completed the cross hatch quilting of the sheep/bird border of my Red Manor House quilt.
Next up is the Irish Chain border. So for the rest of my Friday I was basting leaves for the tablecloth - they dont make for an exciting photograph! - and I shall get them pinned in place ready for a little light relief from the quilting.
Back in October I showed this peek of some secret stitching.
Now that the recipient has received it I can show you pictures of the completed Travellers Journal.
I joined in with the Summer Stitchalong at DMTV for this project which involves applique, print and stitch to make a book wrap. It was a great project to follow along with and if you fancy trying something a little different then the instructions are still availble- free - here. This is not a pattern - you are shown how to choose a colour palette, play with simple shapes using different techniques and end up with a unique project. Go on, give it a try!
It's been a beautiful sunny mild week here and its been good to be able to sit outside, and crack on with some tidying in the garden. Our lockdown restrictions ease today with non essential shops re-opening and we are able to go further afield for excercise. Still have to complete a form to take with us though stating why we are out and about.
I am looking forward to getting out my Christmas decorations later this week - some of them I havn't seen for over 10 years!
Have a great week.
