The Stitchbird wall-hanging was going well, almost too well, the first bird was ironed on, the feet and wing stayed where they should, and it looked good. So the second bird was next in line, it did not want to sit properly, so I thought, why not iron it when it was still on the baking paper, then peel off and put on the fabric. So far, so good, Peel Off??? That was a laugh, it was not baking paper and the poor bird stuck to what I think must be plain tracing paper. So I will have to do that one again. The scissors sit very safely in the SMIGGLES pencil case, I did a swap with Josh, he wanted a plain zip case, and this was perfect for protecting my Mundial scissor set.Win,win all round.
Now after I do the last bird, decisions about the edge fabric? The pattern suggested black, but it is very stark against the green, do I do the blue/black mottled that I used for the heads, a blue, or the right hand side patterned darker one with more colours?? In-between this, I managed to edit 5 of Hugh’s GoPro videos ready to go onto a DVD, very time consuming, even our friendly man at Bruce Watt Photography said it would take a VERY long time. 5 down, about 12 more to do.
