The last few days have been really sunny autumn days
with a bright blue sky.
The days were also bright in the events they brought :
some good news
man's quiet but joyful birthday
with presents for new creativity
a very nice and very crowded Stitch'n Bitch coming together
the very last stitches on the "Feathered Star"
(only the sleeve on the back is still missing)
and the follow-up on the stitching plan for a big cloth
I'm using up the little already folded squares,
that were planned for something completely different
that never got any further than pinning them on this piece of plastic.
I'm first making nine patches,
which I think look like stars,
then add bigger squares in between
I want to use them on the red brown ikat fabric
on which I stitched the big moon.
( but that big cloth needs some REAL good thinking
about how to continue ... )
love all those feathers floating down the star. great piece. glad you had a good birthday.BeantwoordenVerwijderen
Happy Birthday! I love your star piece with the feathers cascading down and the spiral swirling, taking your eyes off...BeantwoordenVerwijderen
The bottom photo...with my bad eyes and blogger's new format...well until I read your words, I thought the white was fabric and your had placed the squares marching into different formations!!! Haha! Will like to see where this goes.
Happy Birthday!!! I love the spiral in your star and the feathers floating down are wonderful. I love your gifts! I find it funny that the things that thrilled me at age 8 (new crayons and paper), thrill me even more 50 years later.BeantwoordenVerwijderen
Happy Birthday Els! I love your new handwork piece!BeantwoordenVerwijderen
Happy birthday Els! What a beautiful cake. I like your star work too. The last picture looks like a final piece that is supposed to be arranged that way! I like that one too!BeantwoordenVerwijderen
Those tiny squares are so effective. Good luck with that one! Many hours of stitching there, I think.BeantwoordenVerwijderen
alsnog gefeliciteerd en ik ben heel benieuwdBeantwoordenVerwijderen
Happy birthday! That cake looks scrummy! So do the box of pencils! It might have been a quiet birthday but it looks like a very pleasing one indeed. I love your Feathered Star piece very much.:)BeantwoordenVerwijderen
happy birthday, your work is stunning!BeantwoordenVerwijderen
Wow! Your feathered star is really wonderful! That's a perfect use of the cloud fabric and the feathers are just amazing. I wish I could touch it.BeantwoordenVerwijderen
The feathered star piece is very lovely. Congrats on that.BeantwoordenVerwijderen
