Sampling, Doodles, Play







Taking a bit of time to warm up before actually working on a project has been really enjoyable for me. I will most definitely continue this practice. A few french knots, fme on mulberry paper, knots amid a few yo yo's as well as french knots on gold tissue. These are the pages I have added since the last post. Now off to complete some domestic chores left from yesterday.

Playing With....

Eyelets...









these have long been my  nemesis and I almost skipped over this process in class. Then I decided it had been years since I tried making them, so why not try again. Something clicked this time and I am now making them without all the angst that I had previously had. Also, I am doing them two different ways for two different looks. More on the second way in a later post. This fabric is just a sample and will be made into a pocket at some time in the near future. Now off for a cuppa, enjoy your day.

New Pouch...









I have a new pouch in the making. This one will be for my broderie anglaise fabric. Just starting the stitching, so not much to show for my efforts as of yet. I am using some liberty fabric that was gifted to me by a wonderful lady on insta gram that I follow, but you can go here to her blog. She does the most wonderful epp ever and has so many lovely things on her blog. I am enjoying the stitching thus far, as I said it is not much, but it is a start. A seam of buttonhole stitch, which I may go back and do a second round. A bit of a puffed up circle, which is made using cabone rings. I have two more of those to stitch before I move on to something else. I also made a small book to do warm up stitching in. The idea was taken from Karen Ruane after she did a post on her blog this past week. Now off to grab a cuppa and stitch a bit more.
