I am truly Happy Dancing this time round. Baby Garden is really finished at last. I finally outlined the fence and in a beige shade – grey being either too light to show or looked very harsh. I also altered the dragonfly on the left hand side of the clock panel.
So on to a new start and what’s next. It is a tablecloth and is called VILLAGE OF MY HEART. I started this in January 2008, with a blog called Me Myself and I. Apparently lots of people had been doing round robins of cottages and houses but postage was so expensive and some beautiful works went astray in the post. So someone had the idea to start a blog and instead of passing the work on once a month we would do it all ourself and just do one cottage each month. The cottages and how they were laid out was completely up to us. As often happens with these things people went there own way and some where finished in a month and others got fed up and dropped out so in the end the blog just fizzled out. I carried on with mine for a while and then got the itch for something new – as we do – or at least I did lol.
When first looking for ideas I had no idea what i wanted to do but then came across a little poem (I will look it out for next time). It started with the lines
I have so many special friends, but we live so far apart. So I’ve gathered them together, in a Village of My Heart.
I thought of a tablecloth with the verse stitched about the centre square and then my village round the edge, and set about designing it. I have two sides completed so far, and have just started on the high street, which has a bank, shops, a small park a school and a church. I will show more of what I have done next time but for now this is where I finished it with the first building on the high street done.
I havent stitched much as a few days after last time I took ill and have spent two weeks in bed, but this week I have done a little so here I am now.
I hope you have managed to get this far – sorry its been such a long post and sorry I did not manage to get round to everyones blog last time. But why not visit the others in the SAL and see the beautiful projects they are working on.
