The sun has been shinning, and I've had a day off (a much needed day off!).
I've made good use of my spare time by fueling my creative urges, and I plucked up the courage to use my new Freehand Embroidery foot, I bought it a while back but I've been a bit scared of using it, but I did it today and this was my effort...
I like its playfulness.
I like making things without the pressure of anything having to be perfect (I think "perfect" is over rated).
I'm excited to carry on playing with my new toy, I think I might carry on sewing flowers...
I also was given a magazine at work the other weekend and it had a lot of paper free with it!
I was every excited to start making things out of it!
This paper chick was one of the examples I made from the magazine!
I like the buttoned eyes!
Its also a little box, you can lift the flap at the top (where the bit of ribbon is)
I might make some for my family at Easter and put little chocolate eggs inside.
One of my friend wanted some daffodils for a few of her friends,
it made spring come a little earlier for me, which was nice!
I love poetry so I added a line from a poem by William Wordsworth called Daffodil:
- "Daffodils" (1804)
I WANDER'D lonely as a cloud
- That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
- When all at once I saw a crowd,
- A host, of golden daffodils;
- Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
- Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Continuous as the stars that shine
- And twinkle on the Milky Way,
- They stretch'd in never-ending line
- Along the margin of a bay:
- Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
- Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.
The waves beside them danced; but they
- Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
- A poet could not but be gay,
- In such a jocund company:
- I gazed -- and gazed -- but little thought
- What wealth the show to me had brought:
For oft, when on my couch I lie
- In vacant or in pensive mood,
- They flash upon that inward eye
- Which is the bliss of solitude;
- And then my heart with pleasure fills,
- And dances with the daffodils.
- By William Wordsworth (1770-1850).
- I added the very last line (in purple). I think it was quite fitting!
