Applique and knitting

As expected, I stayed tuned on applique, after the masterclass. After sending pictures of my finished tulip to our teacher, she told me I could embroider a little bit around the lighter leaves to add some contrast with the background. So I dis this week and here it is (approved by Ted!).

I had the courage to go on with the next flower of Flower Garden by Kim Mclean. Quite different colors. I made a little mistake in trimming the background so all of a sudden there was a little hole in one of the leaves! No panic, as I learned in the masterclass, I could solve this problem quite easily ;)

Yesterday I visited the Handwerkbeurs at Zwolle, where I saw the perfect background for my nes applique project. Unfortunately there was't enough at the shop, so today I ordered it. Just wait until you see my new project! I did buy some other stuff (how could I not??)

And for my knitting, this project is coming along nicely, don't you think?

Prachtig gat heeft je tulpje! Hartstikke goed! Ja, ik hoor het Ted nog zeggen: Uithalen is géén optie!! :)
Het was een leuk uitje naar de handwerkbeurs en jouw buit is zeer geslaagd!
Je kraag schiet al mooi op! Ik moet nodig weer een stukkie verder breien!
