(Warning; Post is heavy with red and white photos!)
Who would have thought me capable of a second finish in a week?!!
Combine this -
-and this -
And you get this!
The stitchery is a Rosalie Quinlan design which came pre-printed on linen. The finishing instructions say to stretch it over canvas (which would be nice) but I decided to border it with little stars instead.
[Click on the photos to see them better,if you like.]
|The stars are 3" finished but weren't too painful to make!|
I didn't get too fussy with my points either!
|So much cute detail in the wreath. It was a joy to stitch.|
|I quilted a very simple feather design in each corner.|
|This reindeer is such a cutie! I thought I should somehow connect|
each 'feather corner' along the sides but didn't really know how
to do it in a stylish manner! (grin)
|I cross hatched the centre of the wreath.|
|I marked only a few 'keeping me straight' lines but got scared so drove along|
the edge of my little ruler to keep me even. (I didn't trust my eye after all!)
Now for a couple of non-red and white photos.
What's going on here...? (below)
I bet you are saying,"Oh dear, Raewyn is cutting up her father's old shirts for (yet) another quilt...."
Nup - wrong....
Mending an old shirt for Dad using an even older shirt. Not actually turning the collar (this time), but giving it a new lease of life anyway!
|Inside of collar on Blue checked shirt has a patch from Green checked shirt!|
