My Creative Space

Creative Space 005Finished up balloon girl and started on the cherry tree swing. Loving it a little too much I think. Glen sparked up that he thought there should be more on the quilt so have re-designed   it for the 100th time and now going to have 8 embroidery panels – fingers crossed it works!

Creative Space 006Another Oliver + S sailboat shirt finished up but apparently this one is too stripy (choosing to ignore that), the fit of the Size 7 is much better though.

More creative goodness at Kirsty’s place because she is good like that.

I agree with Glen. More embroidery!!

Amanda said...

The embroidery is so sweet, don't think it's possible to have too much of that..:)

How can anything be *too* stripy?! Love the shirt... I must check out an Oliver + S pattern some time, did you see their new releases? Very sweet.

Penny said...

Aww the balloon girl is so cute!

Kirsty said...

You know I'll be voting to up the anti on the embroidery.

As for ironing...

If I've used a was out marker - I submerge & leave for a couple of minutes.

Then (with iron on fairly low heat) I press FACE DOWN on a nice thick towel. Just keep smoothing & pressing until the piece is dry. That way you don't get any crinkles at all.

'too stripy' indeed!!! I think it is just stripy enough

The never ending embroidery quilt - sound delightful. Love the shirt, Maybe stick a motif on the front (or an alternate fabric piece), might make it more desireable to the wearer?

Well the quilt is going to be a stunner, if you can get all the blood, sweat and tears out of it once you're done!

Lovely...it's good to stand back and reflect on a project - you will be so pleased you re-designed it 100 times!

Karin (the mrs) said...

Not too stripy at all (does that exist, too stripy?) I love the top you made. Very nice!

Sally said...

Oh you are so clever with a needle and thread. Love the balloon girl and I am so confident that the swing will be awesome too.
As for too stripey... how can that be??? You might need to get the Diva's eyes checked me thinks!
