GA – Tag…

This week Nancy, (Gothic Arches),challenged us to make mini-arches and put them onto tags! Okay!! Still stitching, mixed media-style, here’s mine:

The arch is cut from the fabric/paper quiltie, attached with the oversewn net to the handpainted tag (from last year!!). I have been playing with glass cabochons over text, so I added one to the tag to see if I like the effect. I used red metallic thread to stitch round the netting, which looks really cool IRL – shame it doesn’t really show on the scan… ah well!

I’m off to work now, but happily I have Monday/Tuesday free for gardening, errands and car washing, provided the weather holds. I have to take advantage of getting the house in order while the weather’s good and I have a little time off – don’t we all?!
