This sunny week started
with a "bunting-day"
because our youngest grandson
came to us from school on his birthday !
(special vegan brownies by granddad)
The new backpack as a present needed
a bit of a personal touch !
A bit of sketching,
a trick to transfer it to the felt
and then I took my machine out to stitch.
Here the result ready to insert into the plastic sleeve
in the flap of the bag !
One happy boy
Because the free challenges of TextileArtist.org are now finished
(and it goes on as a subscription per month)
it doesn't mean that there is no more stitching !
There was one piece in the challenges I liked very much :
blue, and there were lots of leaves in it
and a lot of stitching!
I asked the South-African lady if it was okay
if I used the leaves too.
So on my normal glue-stitched background
I added some leaves
and started stitching as usual.
(I like the result, though it's not totally mine)
The challenge of Christine Chester
was sent to a dear hard working health-care friend,
with 5 older stitched pieces to thank more people.
so the garden needs water !
you get something !
I heard once that you don't have to be too nice to those bearded irises :
we weren't very nice with all the digging for the new fence,
was surprised they even survived ...
love the result !
