latest eyes

These eyes are stitched onto a page from an old book, they are from a piece I am going to enter into an art competition so I will post the whole image after I know if it has been selected, which will not be until Jan 2016.
I have been thinking about doing some cross hatched stitching for a while and am really please with how it has come out, a similar thought process as Blackwork. It was interesting  stitching on paper as you had to be sure where your stitch was going as the needle would leave a hole in the paper, so no unpicking!

finishing quilt

I have spent the morning putting the binding on my latest challenge quilt, our meeting is on Sunday so the quilt will be completely finished by then which is great. I love the way the colours work together in this quilt, I can see this colour way popping up again in the future. It will be hung in Road to Colour at the Hamilton and Christchurch craft fairs in September.
