anyhow i thought i would show you the end product of the stitching i have been doing for my friends swap. as my blog title suggests... i started these stitcheries and really have no idea what beki will do with them or how to display them. i was thinking that perhaps she could pin them to a cork board somewhere as a way of displaying them. i guess i didnt really think that part through very well :o)
the first is for her daughter
the next two are for her little boy, he has just made the switch from cot to bed and she wants to create a space for him in his corner of the bedroom. i guess he could have a bit of monsters v.s. cowboys going on...
trixie from coloured buttons came up with the idea of using the famous quote by dirty harry 'go ahead make my day' and changing it to ' you make my day'. thanks trixie it worked a treat!
and the final one is for beki, i do hope she likes them.
i found the quote on the internet and the picture is from a childrens book from the poem polly put the kettle on.
i really enjoy stitching and if i had the knowledge i could turn things into pillows and other things other than a long peice of calico that you cant do anything with.
well i am off to warn beki not to come and read this post.
have a great weekend rosey
