Sometimes time rushes by
and I don't really notice
what date it is
(being retired does that to you)
But now I have started a small piece (15cm x 15cm)
for Summer Solstice.
The weather is very warm right now
so why not take colours that match that !
Of course I started with
"glue-stitching" it all together,
so no nasty pins that catch your thread
when you start stitching !
In my stash was something a St'nB-friend gave me
It's the finest batiste
and believe it or not :
this is definitely hand stitched !!!
It's so hot right now
that the garden isn't the right place to do the stitching.
The sunshade down, the garden door closed,
to keep the heat from getting inside,
hmmmmmm ... that's better !
Here's the "Sweet Sunrise" piece of some days ago,
finished but not yet mounted on a canvas.
(I think the crochet is a bit from my Australian friend Jacky)
Love how the thick bundles of stitches work ...
A few weeks ago it was
See for yourself !
But not only for me,
also for Man who started drawing himself !
Around the drawings of his favorite colouring book
(always thought he couldn't ...)
Isn't that FUN !
