Every Inchie Monday -- Trout

On Every Inchie Monday this week we are still in the water with the trout. I like eating them but not sewing them, talk about fiddly. I have drawn the stampbord one and used some fabric and stitching for the sewn one.
       I have had a very fishy week in Cornwall, I ate fish all week, including Hake, Haddock, Sea Bass, Sea Bream, Squid, Prawns and Lemon sole. We are now back home and I'm cooking a chicken.
Still on the Cornwall scene, we were in St Ives and one of the beaches for two days the life guards stopped folks going into the sea. Not because of the waves, but because there were hundreds of Man of war jellyfish in the bay. They had picked up 600 from the beach alone.

Tag Tuesday -- Paris

This is my third tag for my Paris theme on Tag Tuesday, I covered a card tag with some of my Tim Holtz paper and stamped the small tag and the dancers. The line drawings came from a book. Added two small circles  and some flowers to finish off.
We are in St Ives at the moment, and so far have been lucky with the weather, I will put some pictures on when we get home.

Every Inchie Monday -- Starfish

Still at the seaside on Every Inchie Monday, and this time it's the starfish, or as someone told us in Australia, they should be called sea stars, which I think is a much nicer name.
I used my lovely gold leather for the sewn one and shrink plastic for the stampbord one.

Try it on Tuesday -- Stitch it

Another entry for Try It on Tuesday's theme of stitch it.  This one is made from pieces of fabric that have been printed on my gelli plate. The leaf print is from an Indian block and over dyed with Procion dyes. I then quilted it with straight machine stitches.

Tag Tuesday -- Paris

This is my second tag for Tag Tuesday where I haven chosen Paris for the next two weeks.
The base is corrugated card and I have ripped away some of the top layer and embossed it with blue powder. I then added all the images, ribbon, and a brad of the Eiffel tower.

Try it on Tuesday -- Stitch it

Try it on Tuesday has the theme of stitch it. Just up my street as I am making a fabric book at the moment. Here is a page from that book. It is made up of scraps of fabric, sewn down with machine embroidery stitches. I stamped the owl onto fabric and embroidered it, and placed it on some tree branches made from fine corduroy
