Back from our little jolly in the Alps.
We had loooooads of fresh snow... You just can't help but giggle going down the slopes in all that powder, priceless. I don't think I've ever been quite this cold before (-20˚C with wind chill apparently) but 'twaz flippin' brilliant. Oh actually there was one duff note, I got food poisoning on the last night. Can you believe it, just before traveling aaaaaah... thankfully I made it home in one piece phew!
Bon, c'est pas tout mais I think it's time to put the kit back up in the loft for another year (snif), and for me to show you what I've been up to the last few months.
There's been quite a few things but this is what I've been the most excited about. At times I have been frustrated by size restrictions, and the time I can spend on a hoop so it doesn't become ridiculously expensive. So I've been playing on canvas mixing embroidery and acrylic.
Meet Betty & Nora. My two lovely grannies and their little companions...
Queenie, my peachy little Scandi hen...
and finally, Bleuet...
There is quite a lot of detailing which is hard to capture on photo but this one helps a little...
(I also really like the back of them.)
I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed making these. There will definitely be more to come, combined with layering too. The possibilities are endless. Good stuff! :)
I decided to get some art prints done to make this type of work more accessible (all stacked up on the shelves over here).
That being said, I still love making my little hoops and have made a few new ones, and a few custom made ones, which I shall show you next time so I don't overload you with tons of photos. We wouldn't want that, oh no.
So it's ta ta for now my friends!
(Won't be for long 'cos I've got loads more after my teetotal blogging period.)
