I came across these tit-bits whilst I was tidying up today
And it got me thinking.
Those gorgeous orangey shades reminded me of a certain lil’ redhead that I stitched once upon a time. .. can ya guess who? For anyone new to my blog, this is the sassy little lady I am referring to
Needless to say, the tidying came to an abrupt end and I grabbed my pencils and paper and this wee sketch emerged …
I am going to enlarge the drawing big enough for a cushion cover. I think Lola will look very ‘chic’ in a wide-brimmed hat and I’m looking forward to weaving those gorgeous strands into her lovely locks…
… am I sounding confident? Like I have a plan and know exactly how to proceed? Good, cos I’m trying to convince myself that I do :). Truth is, I have had these threads for years because I have absolutely no clue how to use them! I bought them many moons ago for no other reason than I just had to have them. They shone and sparkled and called to me and I knew straight away that I needed them in my drawer life!
I am not at all sure how I will work the threads in – they are all different thicknesses to begin with, not at all like ordinary embroidery floss. I guess that’s why they are so appealing…
But I like them.
So I am inspired to give it a whirl and see what happens, plan or no plan! 🙂
