...Colette, Carol and BadPenny for being spot on, and StraightTalkingMamma for being on the right track.
Though actually the other guessers were on track too, because one of the postcards is what I would have made, if I'd had the right colours in my stash.
Here's what I'd started, and what (blow me down with a feather) is already finished!
I'd hoped this would be fairly quick, and, for once, I was right. Just two evenings.
The giveaway clues for those who know me, might have been the slightly Georgian-looking house and the birdhouses...
|I'm ever-so-slightly perturbed by what appears to be a cauldron next to the birdhouse.|
...as well as the general snowi-ness and the sweet little people...
|Have just realised I have omitted the birds legs! Better stitch them on, as he looks like some sort of weird hover-bird...|
I'm not turning it into a bag, as that would be just another place to put unfinished projects and heaven knows I don't need any encouragement to gather more of those. And anyway, it would get grubby and spoiled as a bag, methinks. No, this will be for the wall.
This used just a quarter of the piece of linen I bought, so I may well have to do the summer version next...
And then I might just have to come up with my own spring and autumn ones!
Anyway, we're having a largish gathering here tomorrow, so I shall be mostly tied to the kitchen for the next few hours. On the menu:
American Chicken Pie
Ginger Spiced Pork
Rice or Mashed Potato
Warm Brownies with Baileys Sauce
Black Forest Trifle
Tropical Fruit Jelly
I love having a good cook-up!
