Hello my dear friends,
whilst waiting for my newest dyed bits and pieces to dry a few days ago, I just couldn't sit around, doing nothing and wait. No, I had to keep myself busy. I had recently found a short tutorial on Pinterest on how to make what is called a 3 D embroidery. This tutorial was about making a tassel flower. I think they call it a tassel flower because you start making it as if you were to make a tassel. I personally think it looks like the flower of a thistle plant and I liked it's look so much, that I just had to try it out.
I wanted it to look simple but pretty so I chose white crochet thread, strong sewing thread and my favorite ... drop cloth for this project. I also wanted it to be small, as small as I could make it. My first attempt is now done and I am quite content with the outcome. It took me a little longer than I thought it would in the beginning because the loops of thread would slip out of my fingers and I would have to start over again and wind them up but in the end I did it!
And this is my first little thistle flower ...
I am not quite there just yet with my rough edges and uneven stitches but with a little more practice, I am sure that in the end I will be very happy with it. I am already thinking of what I am going to make where I can use this little lovely flower ... any thoughts? One thing I do know is that I am excited to make more of these neat blooming pretties.
And last but not least ...
... this morning the little cottontail bunny was visiting our garden again and I was able to get a few new photos of the little furry critter. You can already see that it has grown since the last time I shared pictures of it.
The little critter sat in the morning sun, keeping an eye out for anything that moved and then went back home again after a while. It's short visit sure did brighten my morning a lot more than it already was.
I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day.
