I'd like to explain how I find it difficult to draw. I cannot get the right angles, space, form or whatever you talented people from Etsian Artists call the ability to get it right. I hope by admitting this I'm not going to be thrown out of the team!
The team members have been so supportive during this self imposed challenge that when all this is over I'll devote a post to them. Elizabeth, Steve and Kris leave almost daily comments. It's good to know that there are people out there willing me on.
Today I have tried to draw and then embroider.
I can not draw birds at all - or cats, dogs, faces .... It would have helped if I'd used linen or cotton but 14 count Aida is not easy to work curves in. I think I'll add a few berries too. That's to remind me how the rowan berries in my garden used to looked.
The same bunch with just a solitary berry left! To make matters worse this is my neighbour's tree
Posie and Dizz or now officially sacked as blackbird scarers!
Listed today red, white and blue crochet bunting on Folksy.
My Folksy July Jewel is this gorgeous swallow brooch from Silk Purse, Sow's Ear. It's so finely marked for an item made from brass. I love its rich colour.
Now that the rain has stopped I can see the swallows are still in the sky. That means summer's not over yet. Hurray!!!
