The flu is beginning to abate although the doctor has signed me off for another seven days. Hopefully I will feel able to do a little more - no housework of course, far too strenuous. Thank you to all those of you who wished me a speedy recovery, your thoughts were much appreciated.
Dale's Ratty Tatty papers started last week and has involved creating pieces using napkins and felt. I haven't managed to do very much but thought I would share what little bit there is.
This is a completed piece with the distressed grid laid over the background and slips added on top of the grid.
This next one is simply a collage made to cheer myself up for not having any energy left to sew. The napkin she came from has little else on it except the border so is limited in its usage.
I have also managed to finish my IFQ January Journal Quilt this morning. I have combined it with the Black and White Challenge and also my determination to get to grips with Photoshop this year. It looks a bit scrappy round the edge because I am not binding them. I intend to write the process on the backs and then make a book out of them. Binding the edges would make them somewhat bulky and so this one is satin stitched but the fabric frays badly - hence the scruffy look!
That's all I can manage for now, as the sun is shining I really ought to go and post my certificate off to work. Almost forgot - a photo of my Hippeastrum which seems to have been growing visibly over the last ten days and is almost ready to burst into flower. I love the anticipation at this stage.
