I just love all the comments you all left on my last post.. Thank You.
Yes this is what I got up to on Friday night with friends!
As you can see from the picture at the top I have indeed been making buttons! These are a different type... terracotta clay and natural looking. I have added a little red acrylic paint here and there then varnished them. They were a little experiment to see what they come out like... I really like them. I like the robins.. so I think that I will be making more of them :)
The other thing I just adore what I made is this...
These owls were a try and see kind of thing and I LOVE them... they are so cute.
I have LOADS more ideas and I should really start making a booklet of ideas as there are that many now!
I have no plan as such to what I make.. I just make what makes me happy!
So that is the buttons...
And I have started a little stitch too...
Something totally new, just for me! :)
Here is the start...
I am using 18 count ivory Aida with DMC 4045 variegated thread... lol any excuse to use a variegated thread! I will hopefully of finished this tomorrow... and then able to show you all.
I know a lot of you like playing along with me... so ... any suggestions as to what I am stitching? :)
I have made a lot of progress on my Round Robin stitch... hope to finish that next week and post.
Thank You all for popping in, so lovely to see you all :)
Happy smiles to you all :)
