Honesty and Organza

20th December 2013

I can't believe I haven't posted for 10 days!!
 I have been busy making gifts, sending cards, wrapping presents and icing the cake ready for my trip to London for a lovely family Christmas.

I had coffee and catch up with my friend Jo yesterday and we both said how much we have missed our creative time!! So when I got home I stitched some split honesty seed pods coated in acrylic wax.....


...onto a small square of pale blue organza...


..unfortunately one split when I stitched!!
 I then stitched a backing of white organza and zigzag stitched around the edge.


This looks so different when held up to the window....


I think this would make a lovely window panel but I would have to back the pods with Bondaweb to prevent splitting!

I will finish this post wishing you all a 

VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS


My next post will feature my secret projects!
