Mr.T has recently finished the Kaffe Fassett tapestry that he's been working on over the winter months. It's turned out to be a lovely colourful piece and will now be made into a cushion for the cream sofa.
The name of this one, if anyone is interested is 'Fire Flowers'.
Owing to his careful way of working it will require hardly any blocking. Thankyou Mr.T, because I'm the one that has to do this horrible job. lol
While on the subject of tapestries, we have just received the new one picked out from the Ehrman site on line and are so disappointed with it.
This is the one that Mr.T chose and we looked forward to it coming only to find when it arrives that the colours were so dreary and NO WHITE in sight.
The petals are in a cream and dark cream, not at all daisy like.
This is the colour that goes in the white areas of the daisy.
I rang Erhman and made my complaint and they were of the opinion that my computer colours were not true, but the actual canvas is left white on the daisies so we are at a standstill on agreement.
As it was costing me money for the phone call and I was getting nowhere sadly we are sending it back for a refund. As I explained to the supervisor, I have never seen a cream daisy....
On a lighter note, I have dragged out the tatting again. I do say in my profile that I am a butterfly crafter and this is the proof. My crochet edgings are still on the desk but tatting has again caught my eye.
This is one of a pair of earrings that I have made, problem is the other one has disappeared from the mantlepiece where I left them over night.
We know the culprit has black and white fur and has had a lovely time playing while we were asleep but where it's ended up, who knows. We've looked under the sofa, under the rug (a favourite place of Rowan's to hide stuff) but we can't find it anywhere.
This is the piece that I am working on at them moment, it's actually supposed to end up as a collar and has another larger piece to join on the bottom.
I shall probably use it on a patchwork block.
I'll post a picture when I have hopefully finished it.
