A Copse or Two

I’ve just finished this month’s applique for my Coming Home quilt, a BOM by Sarah Fielke. Last month took a while as there was a lot of fiddly stitching to do, with suns, stars birds and such like, never mind piecing houses to start with. ..

This month she gave us a bit of respite with just a few trees to applique. These are going to go in between the houses on the next border. They were fairly quick to stitch, I’ve got at least one bendy tree as I couldn’t find my fabric glue to hold the applique pieces in place. You’ll be pleased to know I’ve now had a bit of a tidy up in my sewing room and I’ve found my glue!!! The bendy tree is staying though, it gives a hint of realism!!!

One day I’ll be rash with my colour schemes and have random colours for my quilts, in the meantime I’ll stick to shades of green for the trees! We’re also meant to be selecting fabrics for our next group of houses, so I’ll have to have a play over the next couple of days, ready for when the pattern is released on the 31st.

I’ll be linking up with Kathy’s Quilts for Slow Stitching Sunday, please follow the link for lots of hand-sewing inspiration.

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!

    Bendy is much more tree-like, I’d say, and it’ll give some movement to the overall impression.

    I like the bendy tree! The kites would not stay up in the sky without a breeze…. I’m a bit behind but will catch up eventually. I have a few other projects with deadlines that I need to finish first
