I just love stitching. It is probably one of the most relaxing things I do, apart from sleep (which I also love!!). Just sitting and sewing really makes me feel at one with myself. I've recently started to embellish my felt with surface stitch, nothing fancy, just simple back stitch in swirls, lines and circles. I've made a few felt hangings this week, the perfect excuse to indulge myself in lots of sitting and sewing.
I cut up an old and worn out Indian cushion cover and
incorporated scraps of this in the laying out of this hanging, along with small pieces of pre felt
after wet felting I needle felted some dots....
...and then embellished with a bit of surface stitching.
More scraps of old cushion cover and hearts cut from silk scarves salvaged from charity shops were used in the felting of this Indian inspired heart hanging.
I embellished this one with mother of pearl buttons and....you guessed it....more swirly stitching
......yet more swirly stitching on this vase of flowers hanging.
I've also been having fun playing with PicMonkey Photo Editing, it's free and you can do amazing things with your photos!! (www.picmonkey.com)
Just one more thing before I go.....I've been singing again, this time at a local summer fair, we all got drenched.........
Hope everyone enjoys the week ahead, whatever the weather!!
