I thought of doing a green placemat this month but I could only finish the black one I started in September.
My goal is to make a light/lime green one in November. I've barely touched the sewing machine in two weeks. Gotta get back on that horse soon.
We finished painting the house and I didn't post a final picture. So here's my pumpkin house.
I just couldn't keep it alone!
I HAD to retouch the chickadee's back. I find its wing too low, and adding a few more feathers would help the issue.
As I opened the paint bottles, some drops splashed onto the plaque! I tried to remove them but of course, the wood immediately absorbed the droplets and I just smeared them on.
They are close enough to the tree to become another branch, so it's not the end of my world. While at it, I might as well retouch the whole tree. It looks pretty weak. Ok! Deep breath. You can do this, girl.
A couple of hours later ...
I decided to just elongate the first feathers on its shoulder. I'm now sealing this to protect it from me touching it again.
The Ste-Trinity Astisans meeting is Nov first and I want to show it to the members. They don't know I paint. Then it will be given to my MIL to decorate her door at the residence. I'm so happy I was able to do this for her.
Back to the sewing room, I go. Some catching up needs to be done.
Take care everyone.
