Watch the skies!


This is another terminally late entry from me for the fabric round robin I'm currently enjoying very much, if slightly behind the published schedule.

For this one we were given the finished backgrounds - a floral fabric. I don't really do flowers, so I wasn't sure where to go with my entry, until I decided that the foliage on my piece looked a little exotic....maybe even alien....

And thus Wilbur the extra-terrestrial was born.

Wilbur was embroidered on the way to an ice hockey game in Peterborough, much to the bemusement of my friend who was driving the car.

He didn't bring us much luck, unfortunately, we lost. Boo.

I hope Annie, his new owner/abductee, likes him anyway.

Better late than never,my old nan said - Im sure the new owner will love this piece.
I really like the mix of fabrics....the background really works with the main image, even though you wouldnt think it would. A very striking piece.
