Work in progress

Here's my Mermaid being made into a hanging.

Her hair colour has changed!

I've painted her face, that was a scary moment as it was already stitched in place when I decided I would paint it, shes missing some eyelashes and pink cheeks but they will be added later.

When I learnt to Applique I was taught to do invisible stitching, which I did for years, but now I don't like to! I like my stitches to show, it adds a bit of decorative something,I think , AND I quite often use different colours, so there!!!!!!!Hahaha!

I am going to have lots of fun with this quilt as its going to be full of little fishes, shells and anything else I can think of!!!

Hope you're all doing something creative, see you soon xx

Hi Noelle, lucky you living in St Ives :) I absolutely LOVE it there and daydream about staying there forever. It's great to see your mermaid drawings spring to life in fabric!xx

Hi Noelle - just discovered you via your comment on Jessie's blog and just wanted to compliment you on your beautiful textile art - you create gorgeous art!

Thought I may connect up with you on etsy but I see you're on folksy. Folksy looks great but I'm not sure I can cope with it on top of etsy just at the moment. But at least I can visit you & your creations in blogland & facebook:-)
