Another circle journal update....

I've done a couple more CJ entries since the last time I blogged, so for the sake of completeness, here they are (apologies this won't be a wordy post, I am soooooo tired and my bed beckons :) ):


This one had a Shakespeare theme, so I did a portrait of Titania and her beloved Bottom from A Midsummer Night's Dream


The theme for this one was Innocence and Experience....

And finally, this month's "Bestitched" fabric CJ entry - the theme was 'bejewelled' .... which made me think of jewel toned fabrics and sari silks, and paisley motifs....

So I hand cut a paisley stencil (fiddly little bugger!):
















And then sewed together strips of fabric in jewel tones as a base for the stencilling:


A smattering of sparkles finished it off

Wow Sarah, these are stunning! Your handcut paisley stencil is beautiful, you have such patience! Love 'bestitched' - the colours, pattern and bling :)

Oooh. I missed this post! I do so love your Shakespeare page but your stencil cutting, as always, makes me go WOW. Looks so fiddly!
