Stitching..


Some embroidery I did over the Christmas period...the owl I drew from a piece of jewellery in a magazine and the hoop is only 3" wide. I still have to finish off the back of it and I found a really good tutorial here:






The bird is going to be the cover for an A5 size journal and so is the reindeer.

Sunsets

These clouds were reaching way up into the sky. There are such pretty colours in the sunsets at this time of the year.

Adventures and paintings

My younger sister took herself off overseas again to New York and before she went I did some bookmarks for her to take along, one for her and one for each of her daughters. I am going to try and keep up with my watercolour painting and also my drawing as I don't do enough of it and I really do love it.  Anyway, this is how they turned out...

Stuff I have been making


Yoga pants I made for baby (daughter's - due soon!) from the book 'Meet Me at Mikes' by Pip whose  blog is fantastic and crafty and warm and friendly and can be found here:  


The pants were so quick to make and the book's photos are lovely.  I had to wait a couple of weeks to borrow it from the library because it is so popular.
