Take a Stitch Tuesday 7

This is my effort for TAST this week - Feather Stitch using my lovely new threads - Royal Shiraz. I embellished some of the RS wool onto scrim and cut it into strips and embellished it to some hand dyed wool felt (bit addictive this wool felt and makes a change from the cheap acrylics I usually work with). Then worked feather stitch in 3 different thicknesses.

For this one, I cut the remaining embellished wool into rectangular shapes and worked them onto black acrylic felt. Did some running stitch and then ironed Gossamer Fuse to the surface and some foils and lime green and purple chiffon scarf over the top. Used 3 different weights of thread for the feather stitch and zapped it all. Quite pleased with the results.

Our Gossamer Fuse has finally left the factory and should be here but probably not in time for Melbourne Quilt show. We fly off on Tuesday - got everything away yesterday - it is such a lot of work going to these shows.

I sorted all the ATCs for Melbourne - there are some really lovely ones there. The display will look fantastic.

Today's rugby game is between my team - the fabulous Hurricanes with the Hurriplane all fixed and back in action - and HIS team - the Blues. Fingers crossed please.
