Finally got round to taking some more photos of my WIPs. I worked on this piece while we were on the cruise.
I don't normally use Anchor threads, but I liked this space-dyed thread colour - 1344. I've got a few other skeins of different colours, and I'm playing around with the idea of doing more of these panels, perhaps using the design in different ways for cushion panels. More on this idea soon perhaps?
Since we've been home I've been concentrating on my Flower Fairy.
I suddenly realised just how close August is! By the time I get this done, I've still got to complete the quilt (adding this as the last square); then I've got to add batting and a backing fabric which I've yet to decide on. Then bind it all and add any extra hand quilting. I'm going to ask my friend (who is a far more experienced quilter than I am) for her advice on that part of it.
The rest of my WIPs are no further forward than they were last month! That's what comes of having a holiday!
And as a finale - for a change - something that I didn't do!
We bought a piece which shows the Rainbow Bridge in the Humble Administrator's Garden in Souzhou, a place we visited later in the day. Although we didn't have the benefit of bright sunshine or spring flowers - it was still a beautiful place. Enjoy my photos of our embroidery, something I could never hope to achieve.
Better go now - my Flower Fairy is calling my name!
'Til next time
