a sewing sort of day........


I was most concerned that some of you may not like the death of the magpie ,so resolved to add some new images today . I had such lovely comments yesterday about making you want to sew and being really inspired by my photographs that I was also inspired to keep you posted on owl number two. he is developing nicely and just really needs assembling so I laid out his collar badge and arms to show you before I attach them all to his ceramic body. I mentioned the kid gloves yesterday and so I have unpicked the side seam and cut it up to construct a collar. I have also attached bits to his arms,  I particularly liked the section with the makers name printed on it.....see what you think
