Good afternoon to you,

I would like to show you two things today that I have been working on, firstly this:

My Hillside Freehand Machine Embroidery and Applique picture. If you are a regular follower, you will know how much I enjoy using these techniques and this is my latest project using them. This picture just popped into my head recently and I just had to sew it. I hoped to get a sense of surroundings, perspective and realism whilst making a fun, obscure and slightly off-kilter picture. I think it worked! The path leads you up towards the dinky house, but not until you have spoken to the fluffy sheep. :)

This picture sits in a double rubber wood frame (which I love) and the light mounting board really brings the picture together, which can be hung or stood.

What do you think? I'll be taking it to my fair on Monday which I'll tell you about soon.

Secondly, I like to show you this:

I have just complted this, like half an hour ago, my Linen and Cotton Country Cottage Bunting. I simply love these materials when joined and they work so well together. Each piece has a different piece of material attached and is adorned with either a button or a bow, all tied together with a crochet lace.

This single sided bunting is 6 feet long, has 12 flags and has approximately 14" of overhang on each end for tying or pnning. I just love it and it was really quite odd going to my sewing machine and sewing straight lines! Seems such a long time since I did that... This bunting would look great in a country kitchen (or any kitchen actually) or a lounge, or a conservatory, or above an outside patio table or well, many places.

So what do you think to this? Of course, I love it, but I'd like to know what you think... Leave me a comment, share this, Like me on Facebook or send me a Tweet!

Thanks for reading,
