The world is but a canvas to the imagination. — Henry David Thoreau
Yesterday on the way home I passed this gorgeous red and black car and just had to snap a picture. The bougainvillea blooming above is so pretty.
We were asked at the Yarn & Fiber Group last week to try and come up with some items we can display at the Exhibition to take place in May. Traditional Sadu colors are black, red and white, so I whipped up this little crochet pillow with cross-stitch motif. I plan to make several more and then will present them at the next meeting.
While visiting Beth at Gathering Dust yesterday, I was inspired to make some hearts.
The blue and white one is just stitched together and stuffed with lavender. But I decided to get creative on the second one. I've been saying forever and a day that I will embroider. Problem is, I have little patience for following directions or patterns. So, I just traced a heart, put the material in a hoop and stitched a design freehand. I put stuffing in this one with a just a bit of lavender. Zack said it turned out nice but that the lavender stinks. HA!
I will definitely be making more as they are so easy and certainly don't need to be perfect. Thanks, Beth, for the inspiration!
I cannot count my day complete
'Til needle, thread and fabric meet.
Hope you are finding time for a bit of creativity in your day. Best wishes and blessings, Tammy
