My Creative Space..... Flight of the Ducks


I warned that I was becoming addicted to Instagram...


I've spent the last couple of days stitching and stitching and stitching to finish my piece for The Flight of the Ducks Exhibition at Gleaners Inc next week. There's still time to join in if you like.

If you're around the Brunswick area, you MUST pop in for a visit!


I'm actually nearly finished now... but I can't show you anymore than this little sneaky peek from early on in the process.

Just in case you're wondering - Yes, I have seriously stitched about a billion stitches onto a scrap of calico with my little Janome.

I know that it may not be cool to be blowing my own trumpet, but I'm seriously LOVING how it turned out!

Only 8 more days and I can spill the beans...

The home of my creative space

I am loving the resurgence of the flying duck. Was going to do some in my next fabric printing until it all went terribly wrong.

Your ducks looks fabulous, and are worthy of the 7 zillion stitches you used (and 12 bobbins, that still blows my mind a little)

ps: I am rather addicted to instagram also. Rather indeed!

Wow Cam you have patience! It looks A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!

Martta said...

I would be blowing my trumpet if I could stitch a duck like that or a swan or a robin or a cat or a dog or basically anything. Can't wait to see what the finished product will look like though it looks beautiful already.

Kuka said...

Liam's Mummy said...

Even partially completed that looks great. I can't wait to see the final duck.
