White House

Dans ma maison, il y a… du blanc, which is white this week! I loved making this little fabric house – the image I used is from Crafty Individuals miniatures and the remainder is totally recycled fabric and flowers and buttons.

The big white flower was tinged with pale green at the edges and centre, so I stamped it with Olive green Stazon and heat set it. I machine-stitched the broderie anglaise pieces to the white base all round the edges, placed my little image and stitched that on, then I just sewed the buttons and tiny Baby’s breath flowers on with white embroidey thread from my old cross-stitching box.

I love when a piece turns out just as you visualise it and I’m thinking of making more similar to this and maybe putting them onto a large landscape…

In other news, it’s still freezing here, between -4 and -6 most nights but my cold/flu seems to be easing enough to let my muse breathe at least. And that can only be a good thing, right?!! I bought more Hot Lemon powders today for DH and me to take before bed, which might mean a less disturbed sleep… hopefully!

Meanwhile, we’re still searching for a bungalow to move to, so fingers crossed we find somewhere soon. I’m going through the house gently sorting, tidying, decluttering and cleaning in the hope that it won’t be too long before we can look forward to packing!! Positive thinking, eh?!
