all zipped up

This fabric we bought on our wonderful holiday to visit the Fairy Godmother 

So thought I would make the Girl a little bag for Emergency Supplies. 

Had every colour ribbon except red of course,
so settled for a grey zipper pull.

I made my first fabric canvas. Fabric+gesso= easy!

Then stitched some off cuts to make new paper
This is really fun!

Then back to the trusty Cricut.

I think the background is  a bit busy for the cutout..

and it needs a strong contrasting background.

Maybe this bird looks better on the blue?

Joining up here as I thought it would be a good motivation to finally try and finish the quilt I started years some time ago.

Think I am the worlds slowest embroiderer..but small steps..

crate find

The sun came out so went walking on this beach

Saw these guys come and excercise their horses

and found this crate washed up after all the storms.
I carried it all the way do I use it for wool or wood...?

PS Flamingoes in the distance

Footnote: Thanks for all the sweet comments -it is however a technique I learnt on this course, so don't feel its right for me to post how it is done.
