I have been a busy bee ^^ And I’m feeling so proud of myself that I’m going to bore you with progress and more photos. Yesterday I showed you how things stood with the three Lindashee hearts that I’m making into wall-hangings . . . well today, I’ll show you again, but this time, quilted _ yay!
Since the fabric I’ve used has lots of gold, (and the cross stitch pieces all have gold seed beads) I chose a “gold” coloured thread for quilting. I didn’t want to tempt fate and try anything too challenging, so I’ve gone for straight lines again BUT I added a little excitement, because I did 3 horizontal, top and bottom, and 3 vertical left & right. That way I have a kind of chequered effect at the corners of the aida. Still very basic quilting, I know but I didn’t want to mess things up at this stage, so I played it safe.
In order of seasons . . . first “Summer Waves”
Next “Autumn Feathers”
and then “Winter Sparkles”
They’re all trimmed up, ready and waiting for the binding. I will begin that job tomorrow.
I am really pleased with the way they have turned out so far. And I’m impatient for Lindashee to design the heart for Spring so that I can have a complete set of four seasons. Come on Lindashee . . . Mum is waiting ^^
