Every Inchie Monday -- France

This week on Every Inchie Monday we are back in Europe, and it is the turn of France. As soon as I think of France my mind goes to Paris and all it's famous buildings, wine, the Alps, the Loire valley,
the famous caves of Lascaux, and others too numerous to list here.
For my sewn one I have sewn the Eiffel tower with sewing cotton, and for the card one I have drawn the Arc de Troimphe.

3D embroidery no 8

This time I have used brown and gold and really enjoyed doing this one. After the green it's my favourite. The scanner has made the colours go a bit blue though.

Thursday Journal with Neet

Neet's choice this week with Hearts and flowers and the colours funky fuchsia and slate grey. I added some yellow with mine for the bull dog whose name is Butch.
I used the two main colours on the background and a stencil of flowers with the same colours on the top. The figures are all Dylusions.

Tag Tuesday -- New beginnings

For Wilma's theme on Tag Tuesday I have chosen Bird eggs as a new start in the Spring for the birds. I am away for a while, but will try to do another one when I get back. I seem to be chasing my tail at the moment.


Another 3D embroidery

This is my 7th of these and I am running out of oak to put them on, might have to go begging to the place we had our windows made. I'll make them one and then ask for the offcuts.
This one is in pink and I had trouble finding enough in that colour to finish this. I am not a pink girl.

Every Inchie Monday -- USA

This week we are off to the USA and I have used shrink plastic for the card one and hand sewn the eagle onto a coloured background of part of the US flag.

Fabric page for Annie

This our third fabric page which measures 8" x 6" and this month it is in the style of Wendy Dolan. Wendy puts down layers of white fabric and after sewing them down paints them in the colours She then adds sewing and other bits to finish off.
