Star Wars Sampler Finished and Other Photos (Donna Nook and from around the Estate)

Well here is the Star Wars sampler by Cloudsfactory finished:

Original stitching
I thought I'd try out one of the effects of my camera - colour pop! I love how vibrant the colours are :)
Colour Pop effect added


I'm back to working on the JE SAL...hoping that I can get one more finished.

This week, I'm going to start prepping for planned projects next year so that it's all ready to go, I've gotten half way but have come across a snag. The fabric for the owl project is big enough for the design but not enough for framing, instead of 3 inches of fabric there's 1.5.

Here are some photos of the field trip to Donna Nook, it was great to see seals up close but damn they are lazy animals!






We had snow a couple of weeks back so I took a walk around the estate and the fields behind it...








I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas for those that celebrate it and I wish you all a Happy New Year!

  2. Check with your framer about the material...they may be able to work with it. I typically mount mine myself to save on cost and I've worked with as little as less than an 1", so I know it can be done...I just have to use thinner foam core.

    Great pictures too! Those seals remind me a bit of me this weekend!

    1. Thank you! I know, it's just a shame it isn't that vivid in real life but I'm happy :)
