Emma had a little lamb

It's fleece might have been white as snow once upon a time but its fur has greyed over the years, having been much loved and much travelled (Abigail has been to England, France, Switzerland and Italy). But Emma still loves her little lamb.

So, when I made a winter "silkie" for Emma, I machine-embroidered a lamb onto it - much to Emma's delight.

This photo gives a clearer view of the embroidered lamb:

Organza pyramids

Last weekend, I played around with fusing fabrics. I wasn't very pleased with my results, except for these floaty pyramids, made from shot organza. They are like little clouds and look as if they could float away at any moment.
