DLP time again, we are still in "touchy freely" mode and the call Is for stitching & the prompt " all that I am after is life full of laughter" - some of the design team even spoke about " wet panties" laughter,
I seriously hope they did not mean that literally!

As luck would have it, when I was in my samples drawer last week fishing out my waxed paper, I came across a piece of drawn thread work from a couple of decades ago.

A piece of blue linen type fabric, threads removed, an assortment of threads to gather the remaining weave into bundles. It's been backed with a piece of synthetic fabric that's coloured with transfer crayons. I also had a length of gauze bandage that (came out of one of our car first aid bags) I've coloured with silk paints.

The prompt has been hand written onto a strip of watercolour paper that I ran my tracing wheel around & then stitched by hand.

Weather here has been dreadful all weekend but it does mean that the journaling has got done lol, I also linked my bunting pages to a challenge and have done my inchie/ATC for tomorrow, if it stays like this all week might even get round to adjusting the length of the curtains that I got recently for our bedroom!

See you all again soon and thank you for your visits/comments, they are all much appreciated :-)


  1. What a perfect saying, that just about sums it up for me. That fabric is beautiful, so glad you got to use it in your journalling.

  2. Wow, more wonderful needle work from your stash, fabulous page and a super quote.

  3. Stunning, Sally! What a perfect combination of your hoarded threadwork with that gorgeous dyed gauze. And the words are wonderful. One of my all time favourites of yours, for sure.
