Saturdays playing led to sundays viewing. I put this piece together yesterday and embroidered last night. It's around 7 x 9 inches and will fit snuggly into a corner of my throw. This piece is constructed from purely vintage cloth. I actually had a great time yesterday scrabbling around looking at what I had, finding pieces and scraps that I had forgotten about. I keep thinking that I really must get more organised but in the absence of a huge shelving system it seems unlikely. What I want are rows and rows of boxes, not just any old boxes but pretty boxes with clear windows in the front so I can sort into textures and colours. I can't claim any credit for this large beautiful flower either. That was already on one of the vintage pieces but don't you just love it. My brain is ticking wondering where I got that one and I can't remember but that's my last little piece sadly.
There is another colourful piece in progress to be added and then I am going to lay it all out and see how much further I want to take it. I could go on forever really and I have embellishment plans too. Funky puffs, maybe even chinese knots in gingham, the possibilities are endless.
There is also another hankering going on in my tiny little brain.......I have a need to start a design sheet. Don't ask me why, don't ask me when and most importantly don't ask me how! It's been a long time but the nagging little voice is there, tapping away at my consciousness and I fear I may have to at least try.
