i know a few people who read this know about my black doodle cloth , but not all , so i thought given i have nothing to share wip wise i would show you my doodle cloth..
i love the look of silks on black and i have been stitching various silks and mystery spool silks ( if you are a hdf fan you would know what mystery spools are) that i think would look really good on black
and it has grown into a black sampler of broken bits.. bits of motifs and the such like all randomly scattered on the black 30 ct evenweave linen from Passione Riccamo.. (thankyou vicky ).. i am actually starting to wish i had not cut the piece of fab in half and filled the whole thing
my favs so far would be the pastel rainbow, .. first pretty multicoloured broken square motif, and the dragon hoard motif which is the darker multi coloured one above the stunning suepurplous one ( my very fav)
it has been fun so far and i know it will continue to be fun ntil i run out of space..
now i know some of you will go .. OMI God how awful is that cos it is BRIGHT but i think it is so ugly it is pretty
Kerry had her new releases today.. now paula sit down and breathe..
There were three new pieces from one of my fav artists Abranda Sisson…
including the stunning Kat now if a chart ever screamed paula’s name that is the one.. isn’t he beautiful
i have also long loved Starfish .. there is something strong and intense about her i like
and the graceful and gentle Air Element
you also want to check out the website for the news page because there are links to samples and i have to say the magic Carpet sample is very impressive.. great charting kerry!
so i went to add the two i really want to my online wishlist , and decided to tidy up my sampler wishlist.. and i added more than i was able to delete AGAIN
a queation.,. does everyone elses wishlists get bigger rather than smaller! i know mine is feral atm… totally out of control.. lol well for starters it takes 4 posts to cover it all
and to finish.. My Mum jumped out ofa plane yesterday… 61 years old with cripling arthritis and a scary bulging disc in her lower back , but the opportunity presented it self so she grabbed it and went for it.. My BIL had bought my sister a jump for her 40th and then decided mum should join her ( he thought he was being smart.. last laugh was on him as it was something she has always dreamed of doing)
and she says it was absolutely awesome and she loved every minute of it..
( i have had no feedback from my sister as to her views on the experience yet…)..
