I have been busy making hand cut and paper pieced ladies. From left to right they are Matilda, Caroline and Elizabeth.
I really enjoy cutting out the paper pieces and putting it all together like a jigsaw.
I decided to make a sitting room scene too, complete with comfy armchair, standard lamp and picture on the wall.
Here you can see a close up of the detail complete with shadow in bottom right corner that happens whenever I use the macro lens! The elements of this are still to be glued down but I like to play around with the scene first to get it just right.
I bought my weekly bunch of daffodils that were tight in bud. As the flowers have opened I realised that they are a fancy two toned variety. I think I prefer my regular daffodil, bright yellow with a trumpet centre, but I guess variety is the spice of life as is often quoted.
