Two week catch up....

6th May 2018

The last 2 weeks have been spent home sitting for these two lovely pets....


....unfortunately the first week was 'back to winter' weather wise and I didn't have my boots and thick waterproof coat with me!!!

The last week was much better and I enjoyed many walks along the  Thames river bank.....

....some amazing house boats....



.....Hampton Court....


....rowers being trained....


....a lot of activity on Sunday morning....


....even 2 people swimming!

The blossom has been been really beautiful....






.....this lilac had the most wonderful scent...


.....and shades....


....these fabulous tulips were in a pot in the garden of the house where I was staying, so very pretty!

I started this piece in Cornwall, layered silk and organza on a calico backing....


....I didn't have anything in mind, just played and machine stitched...


...the finished piece, free machining on top based on the printing blocks I designed in Cornwall. I will certainly use this abstract fabric background again also a great way of using fabric off cuts!


I started this for a very special little girl who will be 2 in June!


Still a lot of stitching to do!
