............a quilt for a friend, her boy is due any day.
.... a challenge from the textile group I go to. We were given an organza gift bag and had to make something from it. We were also given a project to make a frog, so I used the organza bag....I unpicked it, cut it into strips, and wove it into a piece of cloth, with a contrasting shade of organza and a piece of the ribbon as well. No pics of that bit. Lots of tiny hand stitches later and he was ready to be cut out, stitched together and embellished. Inspiration for cloth weaving and stitching from Jude Hill . He's about 12cm (5inches) long, and waiting for his eyes.
and lastly, a sneak peek at some Christmas ornies I made for a swap I joined at the Down to Earth Community Forum . My partner, Rhonda lives in Sydney.....hello Rhonda, if you visit, I hope these little glimpses don't give too much away. They'll be posted today.
Off to make this wonderful fellow building my new chook pen a cuppa!
