Friday Night Sew In! And what better time to start a new project!
Last year I spotted a beautiful poppy wall hanging that Lou had made here. As the pattern no longer seems to be for sale, she very kindly shared and so that was my project for Friday. Could be getting ahead of myself for a change!
Anyway, by the end of the evening I had the background machined up (although I shall need to unpick the bottom border to tuck the leaves and stems under) and most of the applique pieces basted.
Very happy that I had all the batik fabrics in my stash and pleased with the look so far.
Thank you Wendy for organising our Friday Night - pop over to Wendy's blog here to see what everyone one else was doing.
I had a request last week for a picture of the hexie border I was working on so here it is.
Not the best of pictures but the light is not good today. There is a norrow border to add between the centre block and the hexie border - one of the darker fabrics. This is on hold now as I have to source fabric for the next border and I need to be in an actual shop to get the colour right. So it could be some time!
Anyway, secret stitching from last week is now complete and I have also been playing around with ink and bleach in my sketchbooks which has been fun. I am pleased with the results so far too!
