The first secret is on its way out…..

Hi everybody,

I hope you have all had some time to craft this weekend 🙂

One of my secret projects, which has been developing in my head for many months (since this post), is finally on the drawing board.

For a change I will throw away my rotary cutter, rulers and all the trappings that come with piecing patchwork to try my hand at being a little more creative, perhaps….with fabric, Bondaweb, embroidery threads, beads and my dear old 1980s Toyota machine which allows me to experiment with zig-zag stitches 😆

I started with some semi-tessellating fishes.

Then added a few extra critters and a frame.

And finally, went a bit over the top with weeds 🙂

So that is the plan! The secret project is finally under way or Under the Sea 😉 I’ll keep you posted with my progress. In the meantime if you have any tips or ideas for my project, I’m all ears.

What have you all been up to? If the answer is “Not much” then take a trip over to to the Blogger’s Quilt Festival where you can nominate your favourite quilts. I am on my way over there now!

Enjoy what is left of the weekend 🙂

LATEST ADDITION:

One of my lovely readers, Witchylin, has sent me a photo of a felted bag that she has made. Sew clever 😉 I love it 😀 If my design turns out as good as her bag, I’ll be well chuffed!!
