Everything I am stitching at the moment is either a secret or a commissioned piece...boring I know! However luckily I have clever friends. Monica bought her beautiful "Teaparty" quilt by Libby Richardson to show us at our last stitching evening.
Thanks for letting me share Monica x
Art piccies coming up so look away now if you are not interested.
I have been working on a piece for a few weeks now and I thought you might like to see it through it's varying stages....the subject is our resident possum Mum Poss. I have called it "The Downstairs Tenant". Mr R. has called her a lot worse but secretly I love her! Anyway! Firstly after taking a reference photo I do a freehand sketch....to make sure everything is where it should be before transferring it on to my drawing paper.
The next candidate...a little meerkat standing guard is not however playing the game....many hours ahead I think and lots of annoying my teacher lol! She is so patient! Hopefully I can get it right eventually!
The other thing I want to share with you is a lovely quick little book I have just read. I am a big fan of Australian actor and writer William McInnes. If you are too you will enjoy this sweet book.
