What would I do without you?
You have been great, I was so pleased that so many of you took the trouble to help me with my dilemma. There were some excellent suggestions how to improve it as well, thank you so much for those. Well, so whats the outcome of it all? Which one did I decide on? Lolol, after all that, I decided to make both!!! One for my mummy and one for myself, and my mum can chose which one she would like. There were just as many people for the first one as for the second one, so it seemed the only sensible thing to do.
It was yet another beautiful day today, so my DH and I had a lovely womble through Hastings Old Town for a few hours. But I was determined to get one of the lavender pillows finished today. After all, I couldn't keep you in suspense any longer now, could I? Not after all your help. I chose to do the second design first, not because I prefer that one, but because it was still all laid out on the table, lol.
I should know better than to take photos in the evenings, sigh. Flash washes out the lace completely, and normal light bulbs make it all look orangy, like in the first photo. The others I took under a daylight lamp, which I use for cross stitch and crocheting etc.
Here it is then, a couple of firsts, lol, first printing on fabric, first fabric collage -
The weather forecast is not brilliant for tomorrow, so perhaps I'll give myself a kick up the butt and make the second one. Fingers crossed!
Oh, and I should have something to tell you all tomorrow as well, could even be a little bit exciting...........
