New Batch

Life certainly seems to be very busy at the moment but I have managed to make four more flags for the bunting.

Only after I’d made the brown ones did I realise I’d set my sights on not using any neutrals. However, my daughter came home from school and loved them so much that they get to stay. I’ll add some bling tobunting, felt, flags them which’ll be a nice little project for me whilst watching TV. Tracy has promised me two more (thanks Tracy) which means I now only have 12 left to make. Getting closer!

Happy bunting

Not sure if the bunting is actually happy (although it’s not complaining) but it certainly makes me happy to receive more. The two beautiful flags below are courtesy of Kim in the Netherlands who is incredibly busy herself and still found time to help me out. Thanks Kim.

I particularly like the embroidery on the red flag. Kim has embedded some bling into the felt and then cut back to reveal it at the end. The metal scrollwork in the red one is a nice touch too. Below are three more from me which have been made from my felt stash and then I’ve added bling with sewing and sequins to the purple ones but the blue had the bits added during felting.

My total is doing really well as I’m now at 42 – more than two thirds of the way there. With such a boost from other people the target of sixty flags now looks achievable 🙂
