Late for work...

....... due to stencilling fabric!

I stencilled with markel paintsticks onto some of the hand dyed fabric

And then I forgot my lunch and had to return home for it, which made me even later!
After adding a second coat, the colour was more solid.  Why did I choose purple sage markel stick?  It is the only paintstick I possess.

I won this pennant at the Festival of Quilts a couple of years ago and it is so lovely that I wanted to share it with you.  I have no idea who made it, but it is very neatly done!

This is a close up of some of the machine embroidery stitches.
Inspired by the shape of the pennant I am now making bunting to hang from my beams in the living room (well I have two pieces now!!)  This is an Embroiderers Guild challenge which started in January (I started in June) and the first one is ice with lace and beads, so I will be adding the beads and embroidery later.

this is a close up
