Finished my challenge piece in plenty of time for our stitchery guild meeting in September. This is a picture I took of my hollyhocks which I printed onto fabric and did some hand and machine stitching on. My finishing techniques by trying to sew a quilt type border leave a lot to be desired but it's done!
Added the blue chevron stitches on my TAST owl. So glad that Sharon is running Take A Stitch Tuesday again :D
Tried my hand at rust dyeing and used washers, nails, an old rusty horse bit and a long chain. I spritzed it with vinegar water, put it in a plastic bag and let it rust for a day in the sun. It certainly didn't take long at all to dye.
Here's another small piece that I rust dyed using washers and a bit of wire. I forgot about it so after 3 days it was pretty black. But I soaked it in salt water to stop the rusting process and rinsed and rinsed. I'm rather happy how it turned out after all.
Very glad that these zucchini are all spoken for. They've been very prolific as usual :)
I've never had such beautiful morning glories as this summer. They seemed to like being planted along a row of bachelor buttons too.
Thank you for stopping by. Have a glorious day and weekend :D
