Up it goes when darkness falls and I can leave it to hang in the daytime, adding some prettiness and colour.
I hand-sewed this many moons ago and it has been lying in my basket (big basket of things wanting attention), unfinished. Unable to suppress my sudden need for creativity, after handling all these fabrics and muttering about how many things needed finishing, I thought that my neglected piece could really do with some care and set to making a backing for it.
some old pillowcases,
and I'm nearly there.
I would like to share some glorious views of Paris with you. Please indulge me. It's funny, I lived in Paris for 15 years and during that time I don't think I ever took any photos of the Eiffel Tower, or any other landmarks for that matter! Now that I am a tourist... Maybe it has something to do with not knowing how to appreciate what we have when we have it - ah - food for thought.
Bumper cars, go go go!
As always, a trip to Montmartre for the fabric shops is a must. Most of them have been here for over 50 years and they are really fabulous. I love these mini mannequins.
Some of my favourites.
And those too.
Happy creating :)
