I found some little paper bags with old used postage stamps,
unfortunately there were no more landscapes
but I might give it a go with some animal stamps
. . . . .
But there was something else
I could do this last week :
another Stitch Challenge on FB
by Textile Artists.org
(like the ones we had last year's spring)
This time by my favorite Merill Comeau.
"text in fabric"
I chose the word "mending"
something that isn't done very often
since the "throwaway society"
is more common than not.
I get a lot of little repairs from daughter and the kids
(two trousers waiting for me right now)
I love it when things are functional again
with just some fabric, thread and a little effort !
Here some detailed pictures
to show the details of the different ways
I stitched the letters down.
That was really FUN
. . .
and now on to doing the "real thing"
which has to be less visible !
