So while I’m away, I’m going to entertain you with some pictures of my recent redwork projects. Here’s little Sue Bonnet and her duckie (this reminded me of the duckie in our backyard):
When you write a novel, strange things happen sometimes. Like, you’re planning this fantabulous gothic romance and then – bang! – in walks this female character with sturdy boots and proceeds to stomp all the gothicness to dust. (That’s rather disconcerting, let me tell you.)
Sometimes characters talk to you. (If they actually call you, like, on the phone, you might want to consult a doctor, though. Just saying.)
Sometimes characters insist on being somebody else.
Did you know that exactly the same thing can happen when you do embroidery?
You want proof?
Then let’s have a look at a little bunny from that super-cute Japanese crafting magazine I got a few days ago:
The bunny was happy.
Here’s the inside. I lined the bag with a very smooth, satiny cotton:
Do you remember the fabric? I also used it for my very first sewing project last year. 🙂
“Kommt ein Vöglein geflogen, setzt sich nieder auf … my napkin.” 🙂
