I don't have a master plan and that's probably why today was nearly unproductive. I was so taken with the little tissue case I made yesterday that I thought I'd try something I bit more ambitious. I'd planned to make a clutch bag but stupid things held me up this morning. When I finally sat down to make something I realised I had no decent material left. My sewing machine took an instant dislike to the curtain material I'd chosen. I could have sworn it said, 'No top stitching today, thank you!'
I don't want to crochet because my hands are in a mess after doing battle with an ant nest a flower pot I wanted to empty. It is now filled with lavender and the rose bush Rolla gave me for my birthday.
Part of the project was to use up what I've got and not buy more wool or fabric. I've still got lots of red and white felt and heaps of embroidery thread. So this is what I eventually ended up doing.
The owl looks a little cross. It's probably because his heart is wonky.
Oh well, it's something for me to work on!
My Folksy listing today in black crochet bunting. It's already listed on Etsy
I think black works as bunting. I know it's not for gardens and parties but I've got black flower garlands up in a bedroom with black and white toile. It works. In the right place it could make a really statement.
Today's Folksy July Jewels - yes there are two - are carrying on the bird theme. I love the expressions on the faces of the owls playing hide and seek by Ialbert
While the gorgeous lavendar sachets by Adien Craft look too good to hang away in a wardrobe. I'd have to display them somewhere prominent.
