HAPPY NEW YEAR !
The first day of a fresh new year !
(may 2021 bring a lot better days that the strange 2020 !)
It was a very quiet New Year's Eve :
just the two of us (lockdown)
and almost no fireworks
(hoping for less casualties in the already overfilled hospitals)
and little to eat and drink
(because of stomach ache)
But to celebrate this fresh start
I post the last thing I stitched in 2020 :
another bird for Mandy Pattullo's workshop.
he belongs in more wooded areas.
But one summer holiday (some years back)
he visited the garden of the holiday house we then stayed
I first made a background
piecing random bits together, like Jude taught us,
and I only used the backside of the fabric
for more subdued colours.
(the pictures are bad because it was already rather dark when I took them)
