I was a dirty little stop out twice in the last week, first on a work night out to a pub on Loch Lomond – lovely location, food was meh (well, if you love carbs and deep fried stuff you’d be in heaven, I was not!) And then I went on a last hurrah with my fellow teachers from the Stitchery to a fabulous tapas place up towards the west end – so fabulous that I’m already trying to recreate 2 of the 3 dishes I had! (I’d recreate the other but I don’t know how to do carpaccio lol) Anyway, on Saturday the lovely weather finally broke, and when I say broke, I mean it was coming down torrentially! Still, it gave me an excuse to stay in and finish off the mystery project, so yay I can finally say it’s done! I also learned a new technique for burying threads on quilting, check out Monday’s post for a wee video if you missed it.
Finishes This Week:
The mystery project revealed! My dad took this photo when he was in Venice with a friend back in February and he asked me to turn it into a wall hanging. I used Kaffe Fassett shot cottons so it’s kind of shimmery in person. How do you think it turned out? A good recreation?
In Progress This Week:
I’ve been pulling outer fabrics for my next Quilt Now project already, but I’ve left them in the car to take to Remnant Kings tomorrow to find lining fabric, so you’ll just have to use your imagination ;o)
To Be Worked On This Week:
- Next Quilt Now project
- Brit Bee blocks – I’m more than a little behind, time to pull my finger out!
Hope you all have a fabulous week!
oh yes! This is very nice!
This is a marvelous reproduction of the photo. Now I can see why it was such a mystery. Bet your dad is thrilled with it.
Awesome reproduction! Your dad and your both have a good eye! And I know that just set you up for a “good eye” joke!
Wow! Well done! Beautiful! I’m sure you’re all very pleased with the result! Top marks ????
Good recreation of a fantastic photo. Obviously, the artist gene runs in your family.
Oh yes, Dad is pleased, all I need to do now is get my hands on it and pay the stitcher. Thanks too for the comments about the photo. I takes 7 or 8 thousand a year, so the odd one comes out 🙂
