Four more tags.

I am falling behind with sharing my tags. The First one introduces writing using back stitch. The suggestion was to choose a quotation, put the First word on top, turn up the fabric to reveal the rest of the quotation. A super idea but I couldn’t think of a quote and my thoughts were full of Mum whose birthday it was that week. By a long train of thought I came up with the idea of incorporating her childhood address and away I went.

Turn up the fabric to reveal this on the other side.

And this on the piece underneath
Trunk way too wide but hey ho that’s what happened.
The finished tag to remember Mum.

Next tag was a simple combination stitch.

Bit boring , and I can’t remember its name.

The next one is bullion knot and a chance to get the pretties out. It was suggested that we used a variegated thread. Since I don’t possess many such threads my choice was limited, sometimes that helps to narrow down the alternatives.

I love the rummage through my bits and bobs, and the choosing and playing around.
Loved this one
So much that here is a close up.

And finally lace layers. This was heaven to stitch. Firstly choose a pretty piece of fabric with lace for background, then play. I had an old hanky which someone had marked with one of those laundry markers the numbers 25 in a corner. I was never going to use someone’s old hanky, probably my step-mum’s as a hanky, so I had my background. Three hours of bliss followed.

I may have gone over the top.

We recently moved house to Wiltshire to be closer to family. This means I have a lovely new area to explore and being retired time to enjoy my family, the garden, walking, reading, crafting, history and life in general.
