New House (no, I haven't moved)!!!!

Textile Art HouseI used alot of vintage bits and bobs, including the old key, which I found a bag of at the carboot sometime ago, I knew I could use them one day!!

And this textile Hanging, I used some of my homemade beads on this, and another old key!!

I have a bit of a thing for houses, don't you think?!

Ahh, now this is my first water lily flower , I put the plant in the pond 2 years ago. I was so excited to see the first bud and even more so when it flowered!!! I have newts that love to lie underneath the pads but I am not quick enough to catch them on camera!!

And finally I just love the colour of this Hydrangea, kind of a vintage pink!!

Enjoy your weekend, I'm off to figure out why I cant comment on hardly anyones blogs!!!

I absolutely love the wall hanging. I'd love to be able to make something like this and have it hanging on my wall... one day maybe! I'm ordering a free-hand foot for my sewing machine so hopefully I'll be able to practise my free-hand sewing soon..!

Hi Noelle, I'm glad you manged to comment on mine! :) Thanks for your lovely message and if you need to toip to get going with keeping a visual journal, I found the best wat for me is to do a page each day but not having any expectations or worrying about what to draw or the outcome, just anything really, like a doodle. You'll be surprised how thet can lead to other things. :) I love your new fabric house, especially with the little additions such as the key! You have a clever eye for colour and texture!xx

Lovely work ... you have been busy Noelle. I have a thing about houses too ... well cottages really. My quilt I was stitching for FOQ had 22 cottages on it. Lovely seascape wallhanging with your beads on

Hope to see you soon Noelle
