A few more...
The children's door hangings I put on the website a few days ago are fairly flying out the sewing room door, thus I am enjoying a lovely feeling of having done something right which I am most pleased about. I received an enquiry as to whether I could possibly extend the range of canvas ones to include a couple more similarly nautical designs and here are the results...
First up is the original: Sailing Ship
followed by - The Lighthouse
and finally, Beach Hut
I have worked with these designs in various formats before and it was a pleasure to return to them, albeit with a little tweaking of patterns. I think they are quite jolly and remind me of the things I see every time I wander into Falmouth, especially the little lighthouse across the Bay known as St Anthony's on the Roseland Peninsula (just for you Elizabethd!).
Each has the same bed design on the reverse with the word 'sleeping' hand embroidered onto it. So there you have it: there are now three nautical door hangings to go with the Hearts & Flowers one shown below. They can be found by clicking here
This weekend I will be working on making some slightly larger ones for grown ups thanks to the brilliant suggestions of the lovely Kittyb, she of the glamorous looks, wonderfully mouthwatering cookery skills and gorgeous home...and she's also really fun to chat with as I have met her in 'real' life in a Cornish pub so I know she is all the these things! Go visit her blog and website, and see for yourself. Anyway, as I was saying, Kitty has given me some fab suggestions for door hangings to let people know you are feeding the hens (as many of us are, myself included), gardening, in the bath and so on. Thinking of some Christmassy ones too. Oh, I also have to make Dave a Grandad shirt by Monday...don't ask!!!!
Have a lovely weekend
