I did not expect to take so long to update the blog…
Since my last post I picked a design by Heartstring Samplery.
Did not take too long to stitch it, but later I was lazy in the bird appliqué.
I also decided to back to an old work in progress that I’m almost to a finish!
I’ve been ill too and for last I stitched the new design called “Easter Hen” by Teresa of Primitive Acorns.
Here is my start on “Housework Is For The Birds”:
The piece without the appliqué:
I decided to use wool for the bird, the pattern called for a piece of cotton fabric for the bird body and a piece of felted wool for the bird wing. Now I just need to sew the wool and get this piece framed.
Design by Heartstring Samplery – Housework Is For The Birds.
Stitched on 40 count Oatmeal Newcastle Linen by Sparklies using threads from The Gentle Art and felted wool from Weeks Dye Works.
