I’ve been working through quite a lot of tasks recently. There are more on the list, but at least a few have been sorted recently.
One bigger task was building a new website, which is now done and if you want to see it you can click on the link on the sidebar. I had a sense that the blog needed a declutter and a website offered a nice fresh start.
I also like putting websites together, but have my daughter Chloe to thank for pointing the domain name to the right place and sorting out some naughty links etc, you know, the techie stuff which actually makes the site visible…
I’ve also been working on some patterns for some zig zag books, which after making the pieces took some time to get together. Actually the patterns can be used for any piece of work, not just zig zag books, that was just the original idea.
This is the ‘Into the Trees’ piece/pattern. This is a Khadi zig zag book that measures 15 x 45 cm. Any support can be used, I just happen to like these books as I am lazy and they are ready made, and the paper is a joy to work with.
And this is the ‘Bright Birds’ zig zag book, above.
These chaps comprise the ‘Small Bright Birds’ book, as this zig zag book is smaller at 8 x 40 cm.
I’m also working on some patterns and instructions for two larger birds which can be used as patterns for pictures or made into pieces to hang on the wall, or in windows or on doors, in fact wherever you like, possibly within reason.
They are both works in progress.
This one is ready to stitch, and the chappie below is in his early stages.
They are 35 – 40 cm long, and I hope to have all the examples and patterns at the Embroidery, Fashion and Stitch show at the NEC, Birmingham in March.
To finish, a few frosty images taken last week in our garden, for those people who live in the warmer places on the planet.
Unfortunately the last image isn’t our garden, we don’t own parkland. It’s fairly local countryside, showing a good amount of fost and frog, as weather people are known to stutter on tv.
