Instead, you can (finally!) have a look at one of my Christmas crafts. I discovered the art of thread sketching and decided to have a go at it for Christmas gifts. (There are more of these where this one came from, but I can't show them yet.)
Of course, it's another magpie. :)
I know it's not black and white... I felt it wouldn't have enough depth or character if I used a black fabric for the contrast, so I used most of the rest of my Kaffe Fassett shot cotton, which has lovely colour-shifting qualities. I stuck it to unbleached cotton using Wonder Under, which worked beautifully.
Here's a bit of detail of the head. It was fun to make!
I made another thread sketchup recently for Liz's birthday. She likes owls, so I thought, why not an O RLY? owl?
You can see the finished project in the mosaic here.
Finally, I am pleased and flattered to have been declared the winner of the Snowcase Contest.
Hey look ma, there was a point to dressing up and making a fool of myself on my blog! Now, I don't mind winning to be sure, but I wish some more of you out there had decided to
Anyways, many thanks to Felix for running yet another fabulous contest! :)
