A fabric roll

I've been working on a fabric roll
I started this project about christmas time
but didn't really had the time to work on it.

I picked it up again about a month ago and it's finally finished.

here's some pics of the work in process

40 inch long strib of fabric with little fabric pieces attached on top
each little piece handstitched with what turned out to be a flower theme

I've attached the fabric roll to a vintage spool.
it was actually the spool that inspired me to make the roll

a little piece of seambinding added as hanger

lots of details in this pieces and lots and lots of slowstitch
it was so mch fun and definitely not the last fabric roll i'm going to make.

[it's listed in the shop]

wishing you all a wonderful sunday

When real life takes over life

and so much for the promisses.
life have been so crazy over here - I have no idea how time have disapeared.

but here I am...

I've been able to sneak in a little creative time in between
and have been working on some little sewed pieces for the shop.

the base on this one is an old cabinet card

and some little tea bag art pieces

finished houses

I was lucky to get my hands on an old quilt piece to use in my creations.
I just love those old worn pieces - they are perfect for my stitched pieces

in the making...

and the finished piece
I really like this piece.
it's in the shop now
here's a link


and some exciting news

I've been publiced in the new somerset SEW
with several articles
and I made the front page too - I'm really excited about this.
I's a great honour
Thank you so much Stampington

all for now

wishing you all a beautiful day
