A Picture Finished and Another Started!

8th July 2015

Greetings from a very blustery Blackpool! The sun is now shining and my washing is blowing and drying......

......we were greeted in the park this morning by many cornflowers, red hot pokers and poppies spoiled by a vandal with a golf club!! So we cleared the mess with a few choice words!!!

I have finished the second picture for my kitchen.....


...I  really enjoyed working Kantha stitch to create texture.

My blogger friend, Julie Broad - https://creatingtextiles.wordpress.com - has inspired me to make a mixed media background for my third picture.....

....I cut a piece of calico the correct size and ironed on Bondaweb, then gathered together various fabrics, papers , sari silk, printed velvet and fleece to make the background......


......placed these randomly.....


.....and machine stitched to secure....


......more is needed but I need to leave it and look at it again tomorrow!
