|First bit of leaves|
and golden ring.
and golden pears.
|Some of the little pieces were ironed on|
using 'Heat Bond'
and some were temporarily stuck on
using fabric glue stick.
All necessary because Miss Boots
REALLY wanted to rearrange
all those little pieces of fabric!
|Here's a partridge on the branch.|
|And here's the partridge|
with beak and berries added.
After the decorative stitching is done, the partridges will get sandwiched with backing and batting, and then quilted. I'm doing two sets of four placemats, so this should keep me out of mischief for a couple more weekends.
Madam was quite PUSSED OFF AT ME!!! cuz I wouldn't let her play with all the little pieces of fabrics. She sat across the room and hissed and spit at me everytime I glanced her way for the longest while, then retired to the rocking chair in a huff!
