I’m not really a fan of the rain – that is unless it’s really belting down and is accompanied by thunder and lightning – then I like to sit inside and do the ‘nesting’ thingy. So when the weather is drizzly I try to get motivated and get things done in the sewing room so I don’t get to see just how awful it is outside.
Today it’s been drizzling so I’ve been stitching up a storm.
First up I have managed to finish “Tis the Season”, the SAL stitchery wall hanging that a number of us, under the guidance of Chookyblue have been working on. Apart from the small stitchery blocks mine is very different from the pattern. The original was scrappy where I have chosen just two colours plus a little red pleat as the first border. I’m sorry I’m no photographer and I kind of forgot to take any close ups . Thank you Chooky for organising this – now I’m ready for the next.
The next finish today has been a little applique bit that I shared a while back. Since then I have done a little trapunto, a bit of beading and an awful lot of hand quilting. I really like this hanging it’s simple colours I find really calming. The photo isn’t very good and makes the whole thing look slightly distorted but I think that’s just me being a rotten photographer again.
So, there are two more ‘finishes’ for OPAM, yeah, those UFO’s are slowly shrinking in number – but I’m not going to share with you how many I have just yet .
