Yes it's the silly season.......

This months TIF was about balance. So here I am on top of the world trying to balance the important things in my life.

I printed an image of my face and a background I had made onto cotton, same with the eath and the the "balls". I then assembled the doll which is based on the chia doll, you can find a printable template here. The earth is slightly padded.

Added note. The silly season obviously affected my spelling/typing as pointed out by a dear friend.

Is it August or November???????

Hard to tell at times..... Galvanised by the arival of this great card from Susan

I buckled down and finished my card for Carol
I took the August picture
and printed bits of it onto cotton, I then assembled crazy quilt fashion onto a piece of craft vilene. made it too stiff to embroider in the way I wanted so it is not as embellished as I intended. The centre panel is padded with wool tops which I let escape a bit so that it is touchy, feely.

Space flower.......

not really a flower, but a nebula in space from the stunning NASA site. Lacking in inspiration? Go and have a look, they post a new one every day.
