Wool, Wiltshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

Scrap Happy September 2018.

Linking with Kate  for Scrap Happy Day, I have had fun. Everything was from my scrap bag. The blue calico background was dyed by me around the same time as the lace on the head of you know who. I actually don’t think I need to say anything more, but there are a few details at the end.

Out to sea lettering was from the selvedge of some fabric by Sarah Jane for Michael Miller. The cat was one of five buttons , one still remains the other three went on a bookmark and two cards. The owl , well he’s been kicking around for years looking for something useful to do. The green is leftover from a tree on a wall hanging I made years ago, embroidery threads, various, all left over from other projects., ditto the sequins and beads. Goodness knows what the silver fabric was used for.  Waves are couching, chain stitch and some seeding.

Nothing like a bit of Nonsense.

  1. Ahw, how lovely. A fairytale in fabric!!! Johanna

  2. Oh my goodness! How cute is this?!! Right down to the “out to sea” scrap (love that collection, btw). I agree with Kate, you should create a series of nursery rhyme blocks. 😀

  3. Oh, such fun! What better way to use scraps and odds and ends but for a good bit of play? Will Miss Muffet and her tuffet be next??

  4. Kate is right, this would be a lovely series. I love the motion in the waves, so delicate!

  5. I love it! 🙂

    Lovely, the owl and the pussy cat is one of my favourite poems.

  7. like many others, The Owl and the Pussy Cat” is a favorite and you have captured them purrfectly. We all need a bit of fun/nonsense.

  8. What a cute piece! I love the owl!!

  9. Absolutely puurrrfect, Cathy, and very apt for what’s “visiting” over here!

  10. The Owl and the Pussy Cat! What a lovely illustration. Always loved that rhyme.

  11. This is so lovely!! ❤

  12. oh this is adorable! You’ve really captured the essence of “The Owl and the pussy cat” with this piece!

  13. Oh, I simply love this! You’ve had a lot of fun, and it shows. The Owl and the Pussycat is one of my favourite bits of nonsense, and you’ve illustrated it perfectly. I think you should do a series of these and turn them into a book of nursery rhymes. But there, I’m forgetting the 17 knitting projects waiting for you….

    • Thank you Kate. I look at all the fabulous quilts and blankets in scrap happy day, then I come uo with nonsense. The knitting projects are gradually coming down, and I am learning to avoid emails which begin Massive Yarn Sale. Maybe I shall do some more nursery rhymes.
