I follow Jenny of elefantz.com blog and I have begun a few little stitcheries she generously shares.
Here is my first completed Sparrow for the Operation Sparrow project. When I read her post on this I was immediately drawn to create a stitchery and mail it away. You can read all about it in the above link. I chose to stitch this one in blue variegated thread by Sulky. I don't think I will use this thread again as it was not very friendly to stitch with. I will go back to my favored DMC floss.
Here is my 8 inch square of linen that I have transferred the Sparrow on to. I think I need stronger glasses and more light when doing this transfer with my light box.
Now that Sparrow is transferred I am beginning my stitching. Those little letters get very tiny when trying to add thread with a needle. They are not very easy to read. If you click on my photos they should enlarge for better viewing.
Here is Blue Sparrow ready for mailing to the Operation Sparrow project. I will sandwich my stitchery between some good white paper for safe keeping. Now I feel like doing another Sparrow in another color. This is an easy project to carry along and work on while waiting for appointments.
I hope you visit Jenny and find out if you are interested in stitching a Sparrow or flock of Sparrows.
Here is my January 2015 Fern garden with my White Camelias blooming. So pretty to have such gorgeous blossoms in our January "Spring". Winter has not come yet. We are hoping Febraury will bring lots of rain and snow to help us get out of drought.
I have lots to share this month as I have been staying very busy. Cleaning, sorting, organizing, crafty swapping and creating a few things. You all keep me very inspired and I am very grateful.
Creative Bliss and Heartfelt Hugs...
