A bit of a round up

I have a few bits and pieces on the go at the moment.
Firstly, I have been doing a bit of free machine sketching.
I have  squares of fabric next to the machine and I try and have a bit of a sketch each day.
Also, all the printing I have been doing has given me a few ideas.
These are a few prints on voile (Sorry about the orientation, I forgot to rotate it), pinned up on the wall that I am thinking about.
This is one of the prints.It looks very pale, but that is because the fabric is transparent, that I was trying out with a frame, but unfortunately slightly too large.  but then...
I tried this print, which looked really good, so I layered it up and started stitching.
I am loving how the stitching is making the leaves pop and am looking forward to adding a bit of hand stitching and beads to this after I finish the machine work.

Also, when I was down at the opp shop (charity store for those in the US), I spied this-
beautiful trim.  It looks like coloured lace in this picture, but it is actually about four inches wide.  I am itching to find something to use it on!

Happy Creating!
