My linen challenge book cover is now complete. I had been thinking of using a snap closure but found some stretchy green cord and put some beads on it to use instead. I really enjoyed the process of deciding what stitches to use and stitching on this piece of linen. In June I'll see what the the other members of our stitchery guild did for the challenge.
We were all given pieces of coconut paper for our linen books as well. I have a thick folder of pressed flowers and leaves that I've been collecting for years and was very glad to finally find a place to put some of them.
This is a sampling of a few of the pages. 10 pages in all.
Ended with a pressed strawberry leaf from ages ago.
Felted landscape work in progress. I made the branches by rolling small pieces of felt in my hands and needle felting them on. I'll add some more branches to fill out the tree a bit more and make another needle felted blue flower. For now it's pinned onto a white board and propped in front of the TV so I look at it often to see what else it needs.
So glad to have the second bird done now on my Sampler in Blue. Mistakes have been minimal due to only having 1 colour to use. Yeah!!
Captured this lovely pair of Mourning Doves on an old barbed wire fence. I love the soft cooing call they make and how graceful they look.
Have a wonderful week everyone and thanks for stopping by :)
