Taste a Stitch Tuesday 8
This is my TAST using Fly stitch and the new Indian Splendour - told you it was nice and yummy! I made excellent use of my time at the quilt convention - towards the end of day 1, I whipped around to the Babylock stand and worked the wool fibre onto scrim, then at night I cut it out and positioned it all onto the matching hand dyed wool felt which Jacinta brought to the show for me, and on day 2 near the end I embellished (appliqued?) it all together. Night 2 and 3 whilst watching the rugby I stitched fly stitch over the surface over chiffon which I had also embellished, and on the plane on the way home I turned it into a little purse.
And by the by, once the lightening and thunder stopped this morning, the humidity popped out again. Feel sorry for us please. The multipos machine died in transit or more likely was hit by lightening after Ian connected it up after we got home and we can't process any orders until tomorrow - they are coming before 9am to give us a new one - but we are going somewhere nice to eat tonight instead and I have only unpacked 2 suitcases..... and something black worked its way into all the underwear in the wash so it is all back in napisan.
