A Little Bit of Sewing Again

Spirit Sep08

Time (and the recovery of my sewing hand after an op), has allowed me to do a little bit of sewing again. Not a lot, mind you, but small things that I can carry around, as I am on the road a lot.

So I have dug out this Spirit Doll to finish.

I am replicating the pattern on the fabric, but giving it more texture by oversewing with a mix of metallic gold thread and a green cotton thread. I started just doing detached chain for the leaves, but am now ending the detached chains with pistil stitch. I prefer that.

Then I will add some beads. Not sure where I will go after that.

Or what will happen to it. But it will keep me out of mischief for a while

Another Tea Cosy


Another nice Tea Cosy Cover from Old Gippstown. This one sort of reminds me of art deco.

I wonder how many more are out there for me to find.
