As well as finishing a number of UFOs over the last few weeks I have completed a project that has been in my thoughts for a while.
I have a few old bobbins that have been lying around for some time and I have been thinking about using them to make a fabric scroll to record a holiday but never go around to it. However, in the last few weeks I thought it might be a good idea to create a scroll to record activities in which I have been involved whilst enduring the Coronavirus lockdown – and here it is!
It records the main activities that have passed the time of day during lockdown – walking, foraging, baking, gardening and sewing. Unfortunately, no room for the Easter Tree and VE day celebrations! The activities have been captured using various materials – photos on fabric, applique, fussy cut images, buttons and charms, stencils and stamps with hand and machine stitch – all applied to a length of hand printed fabric. The fabric I have used to back the finished length is hand dyed calico.
And, the sewing section has a photo of the Japanese folded apron that I have recently made and a copy of a fabric postcard that I made from a photo I took whilst on one of our walks.
