My creative space...

Like many others around the joint, I trying to channel my Inner Embroiderer in order to participate in Kootoyoo's quilt project. Is this girl the community queen or what?!
Sadly, my calico has not arrived this week... time to start stalking the postman again. Meanwhile, I'm taking a leaf out of Badskirt's book and practising some 'techniques' on a bit of Kristen Doran fabric. Don't look too closely.

  1. Crikey - in my eyes (and I'm not squinting) you're a veritable expert. I may have got myself into a pickle with this one. Keep wondering how I'm going to sort out my own red square without taking a crash course in embroidery...

  5. He he he. You are a good girl for practising! Not that I think you'll need it. It's pretty fantastic and neat!! I

    Unfortunately I am in a state of total denial. I have never really done any serious embroidery but seem to think I'll be fine. It's my bubble and I'll hide in it if I want to...

  6. Ooh, nothing like bold red on calico. Love it. Good idea doing a little practice before the real deal - mind you I'm not thinking you need to do much practice, this looks spot on.

  9. Oh, that's disappointing - I thought that was your lovely design.

    And yes, you did enter my give-away Gina - If you commented on any one of my first 100 posts, you were in. But sadly to say, you did not win and I KNOW YOU ARE NOT LUCY BOWLER! I'm onto you girl!

  19. Surely my mom will be interested with this. She is into sewing, and its her past time activity.
