Still on holiday-sort of
We are still in Canberra visiting our daughter with much gardening, cleaning and general house duties being undertaken. We have not filled any skip bins this time but there is a large amount of garden rubbish in the corner of the back yard.
One of the exciting things we like about being here is the many different birds we have visiting that we do not see at all in our garden at home.There are many magpies who come for a visit and at the moment they are not out to get you.
Yesterday I visited the Sewing Bug in Belconnen and taught a class with many of the same ladies from last year when I was here. This time they were making the Chic Scrunch Away folded tote that can be found under my free projects tab at the top of the page.
The beautiful totes the ladies made can be found below
Isn't it great to see all the different embroidery designs and colour schemes they come up with!
I have also recovered the dining chairs in a print very similar the Parisian Love Letter designs from Urban Threads.
I have also taken a pic of the canvas print I had made using one of the giraffe embroidery designs from the Giraffe BOM. If you remember I used Embird to save an image of the embroidery design and then had that image printed on a canvas by a specialist printer.
