I have been experimenting this week with a little bit of applique and have fallen head over heels for this little fella below - he is such a sweetie that I think he will have to make an appearance or two in 'Tail Feathers'
Seeing as at first he was only an experiment, my little friend is now wondering what he will be turned into, but I have a few ideas in mind. Till then, he is ever so happy to find himself among the fabric and threads though, and not on the cutting room floor (aka.the bin)
So for now his home is a piece of 6 inch square homespun, good thing he is patient
I have received a few messages and emails from my last post and sparked a little interest with the photo of my square stitching frame. Truth be known, I have only been using a Klipfast frame in the last 12 months and now find it hard to work without it for the following reasons: It is quick and easy to use and tension, doesn't leave marks on the fabric and stops my hands from aching after those late night stitchathon's.
If you are looking for one I found mine here
Better go now and pop the kettle on for a much longed for cuppa tea, maybe an Easter egg or three and make some more birds come alive.
