I started stitching a wool Valentine's Day Heart but unfortunately I never finished it on time for this special day. I finally finished it this past week so I will now call it the "Easter Bunny Garden Heart".
I wanted to use some of the lovely tatted treasures Wendy made for me last Easter. The tatted Easter Bunny is pale pink and so I added a couple of tatted pink roses and a wee pink tatted Butterfly for in the garden too.
I used all metallic threads by Threadworx Kreinik Fine # 8 and #12 Braid Over dyed.
I used many stitches. I used the Drizzle Stitch to create the wee flower to the right of the tatted bunny. I also used many French Knots, Buttonhole Stitch and the Bullion Stitch. I needle felted green roving along the bottom and edges before I started my stitching.
To finish it off I stuff some Lavender from my garden inside so when I hang it in my sewing room it will give it a lovely scent. Thanks Wendy again for all the lovely tatting you create for me.
Kitchen Remodel Part 2
Above is a photo of unpainted Wainscoting board that we put up 4 feet around the bottom of the Kitchen walls.
After a couple of weeks of priming the wood and painting this part of the remodel is finally finished. The bottom is a paint is called Porcelain Skin and the walls are painted Plateau. This photo does not really show the true colors.
The next challenge for my Sweetie was putting up the Tile Mural and the wee tiles. He has only done this kind of job once before a long time ago but he took on the job smiling. VBG My Sweetie measured everything very carefully on the wall and then actually created it first on a very large card board in the living room. Then he transferred it to the wall.
The name of the Tile Mural is called, "Country Sunflowers". In My Humble Opinion My Sweetie did the most wonderful job of putting it up. The small glass tiles are 1 inch square. They were in colors of pale yellow, gold, white, clear, brown and gray. And amongst all of these there was a gold marble stone. The Mural is 12 inches by 17 1/2 wide. What do you all think??
The next tiled area is above the stove. This part was so much easier for my Sweetie to put up. Thank you My Dear for being so talented to transform our old kitchen into a new one. I love it all.
Part 3 of the Kitchen remodel will be the new flooring. Soon to begin. vbg
Above you will see the most strangest photo with all kinds of elements stitched to muslin.
I have joined our organizers
"Marjolein from Threads and Patches" and "Deb from Mosaic Magpie" and many others on "Stitch'in Fingers". We are calling this project "Pebbles Adventures".
I admired this kind of stitching in a photo many years ago on Stitch'in Fingers but had no clue how to create one my self.
This "Link" will take you to photos on the "Stitch Magazine UK" and a tutorial on how to create Pebbles.
Anyone can join "Stitch'in Fingers" and join us all in this "Pebble Adventures". I joined Stitch'in Fingers many years ago and I am always truly inspired by all the member's stitching.
In the photo above I have entrapped all the elements and so now it is time to start creating all kinds of stitches. This is truly an adventure in stitching for me because I have never did this kind of project before.
So I hope everyone will come back in a couple of weeks and see how far I got in creating my "Pebbles"!
Thank you all for visiting my blog and leaving your lovely messages for me to read.
