In the meantime just to keep the blog ticking over something creative. A few months back I mentioned that I was stitching a secret project, a present for a lovely blogging friend of mine in Australia. Well the present has now been received so I know I'm safe to share my pictures without spoiling the surprise.
I made a string of colourful crows using some pieces of felt and lots of odds and ends from the scrap basket. They're based on a project by Kelli Perkins which featured in either Quilting Arts or Cloth Paper Scissors a while back (I'll try and get proper reference when I get home). They were so much fun to make.
They all emerged with their own little characters.
There was nothing really planned about their making, it was just a case of reach in to the scrap basket and make use of whatever was pulled out.
It really is a lot of fun creating in this way, just trying to make use of bits and pieces that come to hand.
