Don't panic, keep sewing.

Hello. It's been raining all morning, rather heavy, all the water collecting receptacles are full, ready for watering the flowers when there is no rain. 
I have been getting on with some sewing. I have decided to have several projects on the go at the same time, so that if I get bored or held up with one I always have something else to do. I need some more red mesh fruit bags so I am waiting for my friends at crafty club to collect some for me. The man with the hat is not urgent, I can pick that up any time to do a bit. Today I have made a start on another picture. It's going to be a folk art landscape, I made a rough sketch of the layout. I have used a piece of wallpaper to make templates for the pieces I need. 
Each strip has two or three sections. Sew them together then join the strips. At this stage I have used the machine for quickness, there will be hand stitching added to it.

I need to make trees and a house next. The picture will be stitched onto a double thickness piece of curtain lining for the backing. I have a frame for it which will be painted.
Well it looks like it has stopped raining so I'm going out to do three miles. Thanks for popping in, we'll catch up soon.

  1. I too have several different projects on the go, my trouble is finishing them! Your new picture looks interesting and it will be lovely to follow along stage by stage so that perhaps we out here in the ether could learn techniques and have a go -Tam

  2. Have you seen the craft class entries on the flower show website. . You could enter!
    Email btw

    1. I haven't seen that, I will take a look. Thanks.
