ANOTHER PAGE NEARLY FINISHED


Sometimes, when I haven't been doing much needlework I sort of lose my get up and go.
I question myself if what I am doing is worth bothering with.
And then I go on pinterest or see another blog with something beautiful that someone has made and I give myself a talking to.
I explain to myself that the real reason I do it is because I love to sew and it really doesn't matter if what I do appeals to others or not its good therapy in this messy world and gives me a sense of achievement, and then I get back on track.
Does this make any sense?
Anyway, here's the poppy picture ready to mount into the next page of my fabric journal.


I'm now mulling over the background for the page.  Several ideas have popped up but even I don't know yet what it will be.
Might be plain fabric but I might do a patchwork background like the wren.


I made the poppies with small pieces of organza and satin and fray checked them around the edges.
The cornflowers were my own concoction of stitches that I cut to make them fluffy, can't even remember how I made them now, lol

Finally, thankyou so much for all of the comments on the Wedding Anniversary, lets hope there will be another next January.

  3. If you read my comment on Facebook, you'll know how much I adore this. Pattern, color, everything. If I saw it in a gift shop, I would buy it. Too beautiful to hide in a journal!! You amaze me.

  4. I too love this, and I also question why, then I realize it is in our nature, "If there is anything beautiful lovely, or of good report, we seek after these things".🍃🌹🍃 it is a talent you are not hiding, it make you and others feel good. 😊đŸŒģ😊

  7. Love this page. What you said makes perfect sense. I'm always questioning whether what I make is good enough but have to remind myself I do it for the fun

  8. Your page is looking beautifully Summery. It’s fine to question, as long as you don’t get paralyzed in the process!

  10. Very pretty! I think we all question if what we are doing has any worth. Of course, it does. We just don't always see it. And sometimes have to give ourselves a good talking to. :)

  11. You don't need to question yourself, your work is just beautiful. So long as you enjoy what you do, then it's definitely worth doing.

  12. Very pretty.....and you know, if you like it really don't matter if others do or not. I know folks probably thinks I am nuts when I paint a vine out of a crack in the sidewalk, or hang a baby bed springs to hang pots and pans on....I don't care. Give going.....

  14. You make perfect sense!!! I used to do miniatures (dollhouses and their furnishings) and though there is a lot of work in them they just sit there in a space doing nothing but looking "nice", they may convey a story, but..... sewing, whether quilted or otherwise does both, looks nice and conveys a story and keeps you warm on a cold night, may decorate a wall or be used as a useful placemat or table cloth.... Keep to quilting, it isn't a wasted talent.... Hugs, LJ

  16. As your primary school teacher, Miss Trunchbull would have said - Well done Briony! Keep up the good work! But I say - The ability to create is one of the finest gifts that any human being can possess.
