What’s New in 2018

I can’t believe Easter is over and we are heading towards winter in 2018.  In the meantime, we are having some magnificent autumn weather at the moment.

Where does the time go?  We have been a little quiet on here over the last few months busy with life and trying to catch up with our Made on Monday Challenge which is quickly coming to the final stages.  I have just completed item 45 out of 52 and am working on the next few.

The last 8 that I have completed are some of my favourites.  They are all using fabric that I painted one day when Lyn and I were, once again, experimenting with colours, stamps and stencils.

The pink series are my favourites and I am thinking of either mounting them together or making a cushion.  If I haven’t said it before, I love making cushions, so that will likely be the outcome.  I just need to decide how and whether to include borders around each?  But I’ll leave that decision for another day.

The next lot I did were based on photos, the first two are from the same photo taken on a holiday road trip whilst in Newcastle.  The photo was taken from a fabulous board walk along the coast that we stumbled across.  Why did I do two?  I was trying different techniques.  The first one using paints to highlight the rocks, the 2nd one using fabric.

The final two are based on a photo taken by a friend.  The only real difference is the colour thread I used.

 

I’m now off to finish the next lot.  Cheers from sunny Melbourne until next time……
