This past week or two I have been making a mixed bag. Or perhaps that should be UN making. I started the quilting on the Ricky Tims Lady of Shalott and didn't like what I was seeing. Of course I carried on and still didn't like it. Eventually I stopped, stuck it up on the design wall and lived with it. (No pictures, it was that bad). When Elsa came around I told her what I thought of it and she agreed so I then spent three days un picking very dense free motion vermicelli. Argh!! Next time my gut kicks my head I will listen!!!
I also finished-ISH the Compendium! (15 inches tall).
I love working in Papier Mache and scoot back to it to satisfy my urge to build quite a bit.
It's amazing what you can create really.
I did take an idea or two from the latest WOW with Kate Crossley, loved the adding scrim to the walls.
There are plenty on niches to fill still but I want to do this one more slowly.
I bought a huge box of broken clocks and there was this tiny little cuckoo in there and he's finally found a home.
Lots of fun and plenty to look at.
I also have a power unit that needed a cover so I found some pieces of chiffon and felt.
Wove them together...
Passed them under the embellisher quite lightly...
And started stitching...
Added a bit of beading...
Now as usual time seems to be marching on at a rather brisk pace, except when it comes to Natural England who are really being a pain about the bats, and the year is just coming to a close. I'm not sure that I will be fitting in another post before we turn the page so, if not, have a
Happy, Healthy and Wonderful
Christmas and New Year.
Even Ruger, Tully and Ellie would like to get in on the act with their posh, new collar covers.
