making neat little piles of mini clothing (you all know how I love neat little piles of work!)
and I’m so nearly there but just ran out of thread. Rats. Oh well.
I really want to get some more of my list reduced so I’ve spent most of this first child (ish) free week working on Foxes in the second colour way. I so enjoyed stitching the dark heather capes whilst in Yorkshire and wanted to continue with these lovely Autumnal tones.
The second colour way is based on the tweed I had and some Liberty Tana Lawn bought especially for the job. It’s one of my favourite prints – Mirabelle – but in the plum/olive colours, not everyones choice but I love it, I have a bit of a thing about luscious deep purples. I then couldn’t decide on green or dark plum for the linen, but decided to reach for the ‘Burlesque Red’ dye by Dylon as I had some in stock and have been desperate to use it (all the linen for the fox clothing is hand dyed).
So sadly, I need to order new thread but I think the break is welcome, the studio needs de-fluffing after a week of tweed work, it has a tendency to get everywhere and I have a little ‘me’ project I would like to do tomorrow. But there will be Foxes, soon, I promise 🙂
