March came in with cold temperatures and sunshine.
It's bursting into bud
I've been doing a variety of stitching.
The blue ORTS bowl is complete with added bullions, beads, and tatted flowers.
a layered tatted flower beneath a bullioned edging, accented by two beads
the opposite side of the bowl has bullions and beads on the edging
a wee tatted flower on the inside of the bowl covers up the stitching for the outside flower
one piece of my gelli plate printed fabric is being titivated with a bit of variegated thread
hmmm, what happened to that bottom right curve? Ha! What curve, you ask? Yea, that one.
To frog, or not to frog.......that is the question...... : b ...lol
The last few
weeks have brought wonderful treasures in the mail:
Createology sent me a magical bubble wand. I can hardly wait for warm temperatures and sunny days to test out my new wand. I bet it makes fabulous bubbles!
In the same envelope was this little fabric pocket, perfect for carrying a credit card, or two or three.......
From Diane came some dyeing thread.
Jillayne sent me some Season's thread to try. It's a lovely floss with a nice sheen to it. I wish local shops carried it...........I'm using it on the gelli fabric above......and I really like it!
I treated myself to some pretty thread by Lorraine. Aren't the colours wonderful?
Then, Mary Corbett had a giveaway, and I won a Blackwork e-course with Tanja Berlin!
I'm so excited to learn from Tanja. My class supplies arrived! I have some reading to do........ :-)
A little package arrived from StitchMAP with a couple goodies inside.
I am so blessed.
Progress continues on the Wedding Piece with a few additions........
a few grapes on the left side tucked amongst bullions and curlicues
the big picture
I'm getting there........
layers on layers on small fabric pieces, gelli plate and stencil painted
a large cloth in progress
I love playing with my gelli plate!
That's all for this week
Hope yours has been creative and full of fun!
Thanks for visiting.
