WIP Wednesday - Week 7 - Appliquing Birds.


I have been working on appliquing some birds the last few days. It's top secret though and I really shouldn't say anything till later on in the year. You know how it is....

To be honest though I don't really feel like saying anything about anything at all at the moment. Passing through a patch of silence. Grumpy silence more like it. Grace declared last night "I want a new, better Mummy than YOU!" Okay, swift kick back to reality there.

*Edited to add: the blanket stitch is done on my sewing machine, with normal gutterman thread. The tail, legs and eye are by hand with two strands of DMC thread.

These are Fantastic, Helen! The shape, the colours, the stitching, the cute little tails...! What thread do you use for the blanket stitch? It's done on the machine, isn't it?
