Playing catch up - Day 6, 7, 8 ,9 and 10

Day 6 Birdcage
 This day was a cheat. I thought using a commercial fabric and a very loose interpretation of "house" would give me an easy day. All I had to do was embroider the birdcage! It still took me ages.
Day 7 - Farmyard
 Another cheat. I stuck to machine embroidery this time and it was quicker.
Day 8 - Tiny house
 Tiny house because there's not mushroom inside. Haha. This was a rubbing of a drawing I made on cardboard using hot glue. Imagine a whole village of them!
Day 9 - Foamy house
 This is made by stitching thin foam sheets on to the quilt. I had to handcrank most of it!
Day 10 - Tea bag house
At last, a nice simple house. Took a couple of tea bags and did rubbings of wax crayon on floral net and sequin waste and stitched to the background.


  1. I'm sure that is a Smurf house... these are looking great Rona. What are you going to do with them all?

    1. I'm going to make 96 of them and stitch them all together in a long row, fold then up into a concertina and then make a house on the last four days to go around them.

      That's the plan. I'm so behind already!!


Thank you for visiting. I'd love to know that you were here.
