Sorry I have been away for so long. I have been unwell & extremely busy. But here I am and getting back into the swing of things. Parden the pun :-) I will start this post with a tag for the tag tuesday challenge.
When I saw the challenge for doing a tag themed on sewing, my mind went crazy (not that it has ever not been crazy:-) ) I have been making a fabric book, that I have been filling with antique sewing ephemra for some time now, & when asked to do the tag, I had just what I needed. This tag will go inside my Vintage sewing journal.
Now I am embroidering lots of flowers onto some water soluble fabric, ready for another Tag & also for another UFO that I started quite some time ago as well. This one was an online course that I did through the HEN web site. Called " The Stitches Embroidered Garden Journal" with Victoria Crowden Payne from Freedom of stitches.
The piece has sat in my room, waiting for inspiration & me to finish it. Now I am. I have been inspired to finish this piece, by another project that I have been working on.
I am working with a few friends through a book called Experimental textiles by Kim Thittichai. Last week we did the journey painting. Mine is 6 meters long by 29cm high. Anyway, as I started painting things where not looking so good. Then as I progressed it all started to look better. I have called the piece "My Journey To Mt Warning". From this piece the ispiration came to finish my Stitches embroidered Garden Piece.
I will post more on these two pieces later. Till then
