My weekend sewing.....

The gorgeous little elephants have been put into blocks and joined together now....
(Baby Elephant by Anne Gadsby)


I think I will find some nice flannel to back it with ....


I love this fabric and it matches the threads in this stitchery (Rosalie Quinlan Scandanavian Rose) 


two layers of wadding over a canvas frame and a play with the staple-gun....


sometimes we just need a picture of a tree in our lives....


Righto, Gotto Go..... preparing packs of felted wool blanketing....


Hope you are having a lovely weekend.....
