quietly crafting away...

Some of us have been nude in the garden. Actually, some mama's have a hard time keeping clothes on some folks around here.

Last week, the morning after oral surgery, brain still addled from the drugs, i began a craft project. With piles of market sewing to do, had i been in my right mind, i would not have begun. But! From here, having stayed up later than was wise to finish them, i am glad i did.

I got to delve into my stash of scraps, rummage and surface with a theme of 'vaguely green' pieces. I used a deep green cotton as the backing. I give you:

...Christmas/Solstice tree bunting. I stumbled across this tutorial from Sadie and Lance, HERE. Which, in true anissa fashion, i flicked through at high speed and made my own merry way from there. I made a gap to thread my trees on rather than sewing across the peaks. Slightly more fiddly but i like the result.

A sneak preview for a very dear friend, Madge. It took three years for your pounamu (greenstone) carving to show itself, another three weeks for me to make its dwelling place, i can only trust that it arrives when you most need it.

It's SewMamaSew Giveaway day next week folks...i'll be participating again. It's always a blast, see you then.
