I last told you about these two pieces of Easter stitching on this post
. Last night I finished the Easter egg including the memory thread in time for the next ANG meeting on March 18 when we will learn ways to finish it.
The weekend before last I finish finished the bunny hop, but for got to post about it so here it is!
I mounted it on a 4" square painter canvas, covered the back with some heavy scrapbook paper, lined the edges with ribbon and made a bow for the top. Then I painted some wooden pieces for feet. It was not too steady on these feet, so I cut strips of the heavy scrap book paper to make a base.
That same weekend (boy am I behind on my blog posts) I dug out some Irish stitching I did and finish finished them.
I made the IRISH into a flat fold using the same shamrock fabric I used on the pillow. I did these many years ago and put them in a box. Nice to pull them out and finish them! The pillow was a kit from Dimensions or some sort, so no details. But I did it in hand and was it out of shape! I had to block it - first time ever - and it came out fine.
The one on the left is a Hinzeit mini block chart with charms called Irish. I think that about covers it for now!!
Here is my ort report for the March 11 new moon. I took it with the window open and I think it is looking a bit blue because of the snowy weather. It is mostly full of orts from the Easter Egg above.
Wondering what thisTUSAL (Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long) is all about?? I have a link on my blog at the top left that gives more inforamtion, just click on it!
