During my loft incarceration 2 Saturdays ago I had a lot of time to ponder new projects, and since I needed to make my ATC for the swap Ali’s running I thought I’d make this upon my release.
I’ve been making teeny geese for another secret project, but although I always profess to hate triangles, I’m glad to say this is all paper pieced :oD The theme was ‘New Beginnings’ and I thought that as this started in spring, and I still have hope that spring will, well, spring soon (it was sleeting here on Monday and Tuesday, SLEETING!!!), I would bring that thought into the card. I found the best ‘springy’ colours I could, including, handily, one with a flower on it, then selected some linen for the background fabric. I free motion stitched the lettering (although I’m not entirely convinced about the ‘Flowers’ let me know your thoughts) and then I hand stitched the flower and the dot for the ‘i’.
I’m now scarily ahead of myself for the month, it’s a bit disconcerting! On the other hand that Ginger Monkey woman’s been leading me astray with whole new unplanned projects, so I’m not exactly sitting about idly ;o)
Keep the spring. I had trouble reading the flowers.
I couldn't read flowers either, perhaps it's time for the Unpicker?
Lovely fresh colours, but I couldn't read flowers either.
I knew it said 'flowers' because I spotted the 'wers' and worked backwards but, to be honest, I think I'd unpick it…I do love the card, though!
It's cute but like the others the flowers bit passed my by!
I love the honesty of commenters when we ask them what they think 😀 Hmm, I'm no FMQ expert but I'm not sure about Flowers! I love the card too and really wish I had signed up to this swap now I'm seeing what everyone is coming up with.
It's lovely xx
Flowers? So that's what it says. I love the card even if I had to read the comments to figure out what it said. I tried free motion stitching my name once and couldn't read that either. :0)
Lovely trading card! Meet you in the playground! Jxo
Very cute ! Love the idea . Im with others …Spring should stay . I'd re-think flowers though .
Very brave to do FM writing.
Glad they all broke it to you gently that the 'flowers' sucks!
Love it! Perfect looking triangles if you ask me!
NEVER ask if your bum looks big.
Looks like a fun swap – hope your weather picked up, we had a scorcher.
Ooh teeny tiny geese! I'm giggling at the other comments – but yeah flowers is a wee bit hard to read (although running writing going the same direction would be as hard!) you've done an ace job on spring though!
I hope the sleet has stopped and I guess you have got the message by now. It would look fantastic with out the flower.
I thought it said showers and somehow it fit perfectly 🙂
I like the weeny flying geese! Your embroidered flower is very cute, too! 🙂
You have cheeky friends…!! I love it… and I reckon if you could make that 'l' in flowers a little longer, all would become clear.
Love the geese and embroidery but I think the flowers is a bit tricky to read – probably as it goes vertically.
Those cheeky friends don't pull their punches do they?
