An Enjoyable Day

3rd February 2015

Although my day started with no heating or hot water, a blockage in the boiler, the plumber came and sorted it within a couple of hours! Brilliant service!

A couple of friends called round for a catch up and coffee, then I went to take my audio books back to the library where Helen, librarian and organiser of the Knit and Natter' group, gave me a big bag of pompoms, flowers and bunting for the park ready for next time.

After a lunch of yoghurt and fruit I headed up to my loft space to play.....

...I needed to make a card for RD....

.....took a piece of felt and cut up sari silk, fleece, silk hankies....


...embellished...


...added snippets of silver yarn....


....placed under net and embellished again....


...the net peels off easily but prevents the 'bits' from catching on the barbed needles of the embellisher...

.....free machined...


.....cut out numbers and attached...


.....think this technique would be good for initial/number cards and could be further embellished with embroidery/beads.
