SO YOU HOLD ME CLOSE TO YOUR HEART
RED IN THE GREY...
You'd better sit down...I don't want you to have a shock.
There's been a whole heap of crafting going on this week - woohoo!! It's the thought of trying to get some stuff done for a charity Christmas event that has spurred me into action. The poor old sewing machine doesn't know what's hit it!
The fabric from last week has been transformed into flags...this is the ONLY sort of ironing I enjoy :-D
I made four lots of these. I like the red and grey combo a lot - very Scandi!
Then I took the left over scraps and joined them in strips. then cut these into squares and joined them together in a mini patchwork, backed them with red felt and zigzag topstitched them to make some Christmas coasters...
All tied up with some festive ribbon from my stash. And that's not all!
I'd seen some great ideas for felt ornaments on Pinterest and decided that I need to have a go - a bit of a challenge in fact. All the above came from the Range and was stupidly cheap. Look at that rainbowy gorgeousnessness *squee*
Now it's cooled down a bit, the conservatory is more pleasant to work in - great light for old eyes! I freehanded the pattern...
...and had a go at making this little bird, I need to add a ribbon hanger, stuff it and complete the stab stitching. I'm quite pleased with it! I've been inspired by all the gorgeous embroidery that Sandy Leigh Johnson's been doing. There will hopefully be more on this theme to show you - I've got rather a lot of embroidery floss to use up!!!
Have a great week everyone xxx
