I have a Autumn work basket ready and the one thing that I have already made is the acorns from needle felt. I have cut leaves out as well and I have my design ready to stitch. You see I have embraced it all.
Well what do you think, I am most happy with it and the way that it is coming along with all the detail in the stitching of it. The whale is pleased too!!
I wanted to make it a little whimsical in other words the bird fabric in the middle but it all blended perfectly and the fore mentioned fabric is very very old indeed and is beautiful and washed faded as is the bottom one. The little tip of the lighthouse had to have a bit of red in it so I choose this one with the tiny red flowers with the white. I do not have much of this fabric but it also features in my Winter design as well (the red and white fabric that is) ...
I was inspired with the lighthouse having seen some beauties in America when we were going along the coast line. I took lots of photos so I was able to sketch away. They are so beautiful along the New England and Connecticut coast line. Rocky shore lines and seal laying in the water looking at you. Wandering along the vast beaches and shorelines there is something else and I long to return. Also though I would like to visit Canada very much and we have never been, this is another place where the country side and the coast is amazing.. In addition they are very much a nation of stitchery
If any of you are reading this blog in Canada please let me know where would be fabulous to visit for Stitching and quilting ... I would very much appreciate it. We want to plan it and so some hints and tips would be gratefully received and you can comment on here or email me .... thank you.
Now do you remember I told you that I bought some bits and bobs off of Etsy well the button has arrived safely and it is a vintage mother of pearl and a sand dollar. It is big and it is beautiful and I
Well what do you think? its a rare find and I am very pleased with this beauty ... This is going to be made into something special but for us to keep.
Anyway I must away to all my stitching projects, hope you have a great day and as always Happy Stitching! XX
