Embellished heath


Next weekend we are

off to Gloustershire to celebrate Simon's Great Uncle Alans' 85th birthday. We all have a lot to thank Uncle Alan for; he was then first importer of Birkenstocks to the U.K! Uncle Alan is big on the environment and has always been an out-doorsy type so I thought I'd embellish him a landscape. This really evolved itself, it was going to be trees and bluebells but the eye lash wool took over and a tiny hint of the purple and orange and it had to be heathland. I just have to mount this on a cream card blank and we're off! If anyone has hot tips for fabric/craft shops near Stroud I'd be glad to hear!
