Thankyou for taking a peek over the last year and a very HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all.
See you next year. x


The Hares

  The Hares

I used the Hendricks Scrappy Hare pattern available from Etsy.

Number one made from patches of scrap fabrics embroidered around the edges

The photos above were taken pre whiskers

Hare number two, using a red theme, various scraps attached with embroidery thread. I used plaited threads for his whiskers

Hare number three was made using old jeans and a piece of tie dye fabric with added embroidery.

Hare number four - I used an old embroidered linen cushion and some linen chair backs. Do you remember chair backs from the 50's? The fabric had the pattern printed on with lines for you to embroider over. I embroidered some and left other parts with just the print.

I'm linking to Friday Face Off.

Thanks for visiting and Happy New Year.

Friday Catch Up 22 12 2023

I've been making hares over the last year, I started in January and have made four so far using the Hendrick's scrappy hare pattern. They have now gone to new homes as gifts. I'll post a more detailed post about these next time.

I've also made a number of travel tissue covers also for gifts.

I met up with arty friends for a workshop where we made paper houses

and received some lovely handmade gifts. The hat was an extra, one lady always makes us a hat as well as a gift, this year she added baubles to a summer hat.

Christmas Cards in Watercolours - The dog card is for my son and family as they have a dog, the cat one is for my daughter and family as they used to have a cat.

The first window was in the ceiling of the taxi van we were travelling in.
