Embroidery, Birds & a Cat
Posted by pegsplace on January 27, 2013
So…I was looking through my library of quilting books and I found this! I got it a long time ago but I never have the time to do a huge label…but this time I decided to try one. There are some very nice ones in here but so many are directly related to quilters or sewers so that limits them. Here is the one I chose. I am outlining the flowers and will outline the frame. As for the writing, I am still debating…..Any suggestions? I think that it might be too hard to embroider so thinking of using a red fine point pen.
I’m not very good at colouring and drawing but I like to embroider. I didn’t fill this in; sort of lacking in time, but I like how it is turning out. The material under it is the backing of the herb quilt. I will have a finished project soon.
Today there was a baby woodpecker at the feeder:
And we always have the chickadees. The bluejays haven’t been around lately. I guess that they are pouting because we were rather lax about food this week, during our -40 celcius cold spell! We couldn’t get the patio door open and the feeder is just there. Nature on our doorstep.
The cat was using his snuggle bungalow today. I have no idea why.
Pye rarely uses this place but he spent almost the whole day in it. This sits right next to the patio door and he loves to perch on top to watch….the birds and the odd squirrel.
Well, it is Sunday evening and I am rather sad. I have to put away the embroidery and do a bit of prep for school tomorrow . I like to be VERY prepared for my students and tomorrow I have two 3-hour classes to give.
Before I leave, I must give a link:
The owner, Vicki, is doing a “Grow Your Blog” party and I missed the deadline. I am taking the time to visit the blogs, or as many as I can. It takes time to visit but I enjoy meeting and seeing what everyone is doing. The first few I went to were so interesting. They have so many things in common with me, journal quilts, books and altered books and cats and teaching English and…..you get the drift! I will make a new category in my links for these gals because I have a hard time with the “follower” account system…wordpress, blogspot, google! What does everyone else do?
