AFTER dipping into my stash of materials, threads, beads and 'crafty' things that may come in useful one day, I have been busy stitching hearts and flowers using various techniques, mainly a kind of quilting, with shapes sandwiched between layers of fabric, embellished with beads,ribbons, lace, charms and stitching. Some even use real flowers.
Some of my stitches are very uneven, but it is a while since I have done anything like this and, on the whole, I am quite pleased with the way they turned out. I have plenty of ideas for other 'fiddle faddles' and hope to improve them After all, practice makes perfect!
I may even try turning some into cards, to see if I can sell them. They would be suitable for Valentine offerings, weddings, anniversaries, engagements, Mother's Day - or just to tell someone you love them!
Meanwhile I have posted photographs of some of my work.
