March is ending, and, hopefully, taking the last of the snow with it!
I'm ready for spring.
I think he's looking for spring, too.
These goldfinch are starting to turn yellow
look at that chin spot and those tear-drop eyes! What a cutie!
A wee bit of stitching was done on the Wedding Piece this week, with a few additions:
2 woven picot leaves, a cast-on stitch rose, and a bud.......more to add.......
On the wrapping cloth piece #12, I added a beaded center to a fancy picot flower. The base is a wrapped ring with rows of buttonhole lace
this giant bullion is 185 wraps!
Soon it will have a few more friends......
I need to create more wrapping cloth pieces
The large braid on the left was made with the kit material using 8 strands.
The braid on the right used 8 strands of size 20 crochet cotton. I've been playing with patterns.
Tatted bunnies and cabbage edging is a seasonal tat with Easter next Monday. I used size 20 crochet cotton, so this feels quite bulky. Bunny 1 on the left has a major error with the neck join.
Next I'll tat the bunnies, with a longer chain between them, using a finer thread.
Two more gelli painted fabrics join the queue awaiting some hand stitching.
My art room has been re-organized. It's a small bedroom. (~9x11) Here's how it looks now..........( well, before I did the painting!)
This work table is a very old one with a porcelain top- once probably used for rolling out pastry, but now it's great for cleaning up spilled paint!
The center unit was fastened to the dining room wall when we bought the house, but didn't work with our furniture. Now it's a great unit for storing some of my supplies.
There's a bedroom closet to the left of the computer, and there I keep my fabrics in plastic storage tubs.
Neat and tidy didn't last long, did it? lol
(aren't they pretty?!)
( rolls of lace!)
4 cut-lace napkins, and 2 lace doilies.
The total came to $5.00! Wow!
I love shopping there! (too bad it's so far away)
Well, that was my week with needle, thread, paint and fabric. Hope you've had a fun and creative week.
Thanks for visiting.
