Where Did This Week Go???

23rd May 2015

Have you ever had a week that has been busy but not much to show for it????

This has been my week, organising the electrician to renew our kitchen lights, buying paint for the kitchen ceiling( hate painting ceilings) food shopping, walking the dog, cooking, baking, making a costume for our Centenary Fun Day in the park, bunting for Fun Day and some embroidery.

I learnt some new stitches at the Embroiderer'd Guild evening and finished the stitches at home and decided to put them in a small book.

On Fun Day I am  on the cake stall in costume as this is the park's centenary year.....

.....made an apron to wear over a grey blouse and gathered skirt....

....took longer than I thought!

Have added more felt/silk to my 'bowl'....
....still more to do!

This an ongoing piece, it started as a felted piece using my embellisher, covered with scrim and some stitching but I didn't like it!

When I was in my course in Cornwall Anne Griffiths showed a piece of fabric she had embroidered on her journeys and I loved the idea of making flowers in a variety of ways and colours.That is what I am doing, will probably make it into a book cover.
