It’s Friday already, so here’s my post for the Friday Photo Challenge organised by Postcard from Gibraltar. The word for today is curve.
This is a silk painting I did a few years ago – I couldn’t find the right feature painting for my purple wall in our bedroom, so I painted one! It’s not my design, I traced it from a Burda magasine, it’s full of curves like a decorative wrought iron gate, I call it ‘Through the Park Gates’
This cross-stitch is one I did in 2015, I’d had the pattern a couple of years, I love the shape of the Father Christmas, with the long curve of his coat.
This is a bag I embroidered about the same time, it was a pattern in Classic Inspirations magasine,the curves made it very difficult to make it neatly into a bag, it still looks pretty though.
This is a smocked dress I made for Helen 20 years ago, it was the only Bishop neckline I tackled,I love the curve of the rounded neckline,but I think it’s possibly a design that suits little children best!
My ripple blanket, I learnt to crochet so I could make a ripple blanket having fallen for the Attic 24 Coast blanket, I wanted moorland colours though so I chose my own wool and it took me forever, but I did finally finish it! Attic24 now do a moorland range.
A bracelet, I made this on a course down at Denman College on beaded jewelry, the final piece we were meant to make wasn’t my cup of tea but the tutor had some kits, so I made this instead, the trellis design of the beading gives it a lovely slinky curve.
Finally, the beautiful curve of a red kite, these stunning birds were close to extinction a few years ago but they were reintroduced at a couple of breeding sites and they’ve done really well, spreading their wings further a field (‘scuse the pun!) We were lucky as one of the original breeding sites is down the road at Harewood House so we often see these majestic birds seeking out the thermals.
