"A Stitcher's Journey" that is and I can't seem to get away from it! This week this arrived:
And I have been painting and staining these:
And stitching this:
|Tulip House Stitching Companion - Blackbird Designs|
30 ct Cafe Kona, GAST floss except for the bird motif,
I used WDW Dolphin. (This is destined to be a gift so the
button is used to hide the initial of the recipient. :o)
|Tulip Pincushion - Blackbird Designs|
Fabric and Fibers same as above
And I have been cutting matboard and batting and fabric, oh my! I am having a grand old time in the sewing/craft room. LOL I have wanted some of the Briwax for quite some time and I finally broke down and purchased it. That stuff is messy and stinks to high heaven but it really does give a nice finishing effect if you want your piece to look "aged". The tin is more than I will use in a lifetime so if anyone needs a little bit (a little goes a long way), email me and maybe we can work out a trade.
My friend Vera attended a Mennonite Relief sale a couple of weeks ago and earlier this week these gorgeous fabrics arrived in my mailbox. There are lots of blues, some wonderful Christmas prints, a lovely bird FQ, a seashell FQ, and a couple of orphan blocks. I was surprised to see that the star block is also hand pieced. :o) Thank you so much Vera for thinking of me. You know these will be put to good use.
It is a cold, rainy day here in NC. The turnips, collards, and salad greens we planted last weekend have already sprouted and the rain will help speed their growth along. I am happy to report that work slowed down a bit this week and I "think" I may have regained my sanity. LOL
I hope you all had a great week and are enjoying a wonderful weekend. As for me...I have to get back to my "journey"!
~~This is my 2nd attempt at this post. I can't seem to get the pictures to load on my computer. :o(~~
