Tulips and Tapestry made a great sounding combination I thought! You could almost imagine a folk song being sung about the two things together couldn't you.
I shall start with the tulips. The beautiful flowers my Hubby bought me for Valentines. I have nothing against roses, but oh how I do love a tulip in springtime!
He did go a little overboard with the amount be bought, but that is fine with me as I now have them spread all around the house to see wherever I am.
It really is tulips a go go!
I have finally - only about 7 years after I started it - finished my latest tapestry project! I have shown it to you a few times before as I have completed different squares. Today I have the final four squares to show you and the finished piece.
I will do more of a Ta Dah! when I have made it up into a cushion, but I need to get some backing fabric first. This though is the finished piece of fabric. It is about 16 inches square to give you an idea of the size.
My next project? Well I still have a blanket that I am crocheting as and when, but mostly my crocheting is confined to pattern making at the moment, so not much to show you. I have though started on my next tapestry project. This is the year of the needle for me so I have a lot of sewing and needle projects to get through this year.
I love it already and cannot wait to get more done and show it to you. This is the beginning! It is sideways because of the way that I am having to work it on my tapestry frame.
Hope that you all had a great weekend and that you are off to a good start this - for us - cold and sunny Monday morning.
