I'm trying to lose the U from my UFOs as I'm very fond of starting projects and then getting carried away with something else. The grass always seems to be greener on the other side!
For a start, this goddess of plenty needs some arms. The basic goddess shape is from a pattern by Michelle Simkins and then you embellish to your heart's content. I started off embellishing her with flowers but then got carried away and added leaves, fruit, veg, bees and bugs, etc, so she became a goddess of plenty. I still have the back to embellish and her arms, of course! I put a muslin bag of rice in her base to add weight to enable her to stand up by herself and added a few drops of geranium, rose, lavender and orange essential oils.
This lace tunic design I started a few months ago and then it got left in the flurry of Xmas giftmaking.
I must try to find the time to finish it.
Then, there's my first embroidery project which I hadn't touched for ages. I had a good go at it yesterday and I think it's finished except that I'm not happy with the semi-precious stones that I've used so have ordered a selection of different ones to see which might work best. Here is my semi-precious rockery as it is at the moment (semi-precious chips not sewn on yet).
Not much else to report for the time being except that I've spent quite a bit of time over the last couple of weeks working on a secret project which is now finished but can't be shown yet so that's it for today!
