More Homework

This was the give away prize won by Louise. She has now received it and I hope she likes it.

I have made a start on another piece of my homework. I am making a wall hanging inspired by a picture I have of a field full of poppies.

I started with a piece of green felt and laid wool rovings, threads of various kinds and cut up ribbons on top.

The next three pictures are close ups of the various stages.

The next picture shows all the mess covered up with dyed cotton scrim. This was then tacked down and I attacked the piece of fabric with my embellisher.
Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo but as I haven't finished with the embellisher I will do that tomorrow.
We still don't know what is wrong with Sparky. We took him back to the vets on Friday. The blood tests they had carried out were inconclusive. He had a pain killing injection and they referred him to a specialist. Neil took him yesterday afternoon and he was very impressed the set up and the vet. He said it looks just like an NHS hospital. Tomorrow Sparky is going to have an MRI Scan. The vet thinks it could be a slipped disc in his spine or a tumour. We just want him to get better and come home the house is so quiet without him.

On Friday we took part in the biggest coffee morning to raise money for Macmillan. We had a great time and chatted to a lot of nice people and mananaged to raise £304. We really enjoyed the morning and would like to say a big thank you to all those who attended and helped us to raise so much money.

I LOVE IT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you ever so much Angela, sorry I haven't thanked you sooner than this, my parents don't have internet connection. So I had to wait till I got back to my place in Essex before I could thank you. I will post about your great give away and again post when I use the fabrics.

Thank you ever so much.

Hope Sparky is better soon Angela. Your homework is looking very promising - can't wait to see it. And well done on the coffee morning. Fantastic result.
