it is the first time i participate in elizabeth´s weekly
where some Kind of drink should be involved.
after some years of break in cooking elderflower syrup, my son felt the Need to do it again this year. he made almost 4 Liter of this sugary water (one tea spoon in one glass of ice water is enough).
quite popular in Germany over the last years was a Longdrink called "Hugo", in which the syrup is filled up with Prosecco, water and mint.
and it renders good Service catching fruit flies.
(mix water + syrup + vinegar + a drop of dishwashing liquid)
and with selfmade Labels some of them will be small presents.
did some stitching the last days /evenings... therefore i prepared fabrics
maybe you know this deco material (snitched some at the birthday recently;) well, i asked...)... it is synthetic and Comes on a roll. the fibers are stiff and i thought they should be fine for a Background on fabric.
prepared a mix of green and White acrylics, rolled on an old transparency
and rolled this onto the fabric using the fiber "stencil"
then i stamped eraser cut flowers in three Colors onto these Backgrounds:
the one on the bottom has some space left for a Quote from Ralph waldo emerson,
which i stitched after writing it with a pen that will vanish by itself after a few days...
on the smaller Strip i stitched around the stampings,
on the larger one only the Quote is stitched.
