So, I stalked her Instagram account a bit and made her this, which I hope she will think is an acceptable swap:
The picture is for someone who likes quilts, cats, dahlias and babies. Unfortunately, in this scene, the babies are being naughty in another room so she's had to abandon her plans for a sit down with a cuppa and a bit of piecing, and now the cat has stolen her chair.
I had a lot of fun thinking about the details, like the embroidered steam coming from the abandoned mug.
I was particularly pleased with the tiny reel of thread which is about a cm in size.
It's a lot of fun disappearing into an imaginary world to make pictures like this, even if I usually have to surface to make dinner.
It is wonderful, I love it :-)ReplyDelete

I love this - and it's a pretty good representation of my life too (except that 6 year olds can make more mess than babies manage!)ReplyDelete
Just perfect and such a lovely composition. The cat has to be my favourite.ReplyDelete
Thank you Jenny :-)Delete
