The Stitching Tree
These are the threads that came with the piece
Things seem to have been quite felty lately. I made some pieces of Nuno felt the other day (a good way to keep warm), dyed them and was also able to throw in some left over pieces of silk which now coordinate nicely. I love the way the different silks produce varying textures.
I have some ideas for a project, albeit a small one for the felt but I can't reveal it at the moment as it may well become a swap.
I know that journaling is something that many of you out there do on a regular basis but I am a real procrastinator when it comes to using sketchbooks etc. I tend to launch straight into the stitching and see where it takes me. Myfanwy Hart has set up a blog about journals and so I decided that while my trusty Bernina is having a service (I can't believe that it gave me an actual message telling me to contact my dealer!) I would do something that didn't require too much in the way of stitching. A quick dabble last night produced several pages and some lovely pieces of paper that will come in handy sometime.
In the post from Jan this week was my ATC. It is a beautiful rainbow of pleated sheers.
My order from the Thread Studio, along with some used Shiva sticks also arrived. I didn't take a photo of the latter but they are going to be really useful as none of them are colour that I have already.
And last, but by no means least, just before started this blog post I was browsing through the ones that I follow and discovered hat I had won Jan's giveaway which is a beautiful bag, so thanks again to Jan.
Thank you too to all of your good wishes over my cold. It has now gone thank you.
Nothing more for now so enjoy being creative until next time.
