you are invited to grab a Cup of coffee (or tea) and follow me through the last week...
Cappuccino and panna cotta with apricots
my elder son is the "Minister of health" in our household, so when he visits at the Weekend he often brings up new recipes (he loves to cook) and new Food.
this time it was the horned melon or kiwano, which i never tried before:
i´m glad i photographed it, because i really liked its look,
but: not my taste. somehow like unripe bananas...
i think i´ll get my vitamins from elsewhere...
after quite a pause i took up my Journal again, the one with the gelliprint Backgrounds.
back in 2010 the swedish post released these awesome stamps with the candy cane sucking Girl. i had to buy them... and my custom made swedish cancellation stamps fits there perfectly.
text from a Magazine/Advertising, translates: tested and found to be good.
as this month´s ajj theme is Collage, i link it to this challenge.
i suppose i will be able to make more journaling this month, as the weather currently is not inviting to go outside...
i went on stitchin´ at the woven Piece from last week:
after several times of stitching inadvertently into the Cloth at the edges, i turned the exterior part down with safetyPins for the Moment.
i stenciled a raven (umr-design) and a tree (tim holtz) onto the fabric and filled Them with stitches.
also appliqued a pale moon in a very light yellow (old blouse of mine) above the raven.
the sun got some pale yellow stitching, too...
and the snowflakes were embroidered in various shades of blue
this last pic Shows the finished Piece. the red line (marked with photoshop) is the outline of the woven 6x6 stripes and thus everything beyond is not embroidered.
what will it become?
a Picture on the wall? a pillow? part of a larger something?
for example pieces like this - a snow embroidered patch - could be taken to enlarge it sideward.
not sure though.
