Floral mess

Try few times to do this post but been very unsuccessful for the moment  .
I have terrible problems on doing a blog from my tablet . The problem I have is the fact I do pictures with my tablet and then I can't download strait away those pictures on my laptop .
Anyway I manage to start few more projects so at the end of this year I will still have plenty projects unfinished even if this year was a year of things to be finish .
This project below is hopefully going to be made in a pillowcase. I like it a lot as I get to use many of the left over threads from different other projects.
The design is one of mine and is giving me the chance to practise different stitch combinations .

I do hope this project to be ready by 31st and this is going to be a great challenge. Between time of visits and guests coming for dinner, children coming and going back ( Pick ups from airport and drop them back ) will be an achievement to manage to do some sewing .

Anyway hope you all will have a Merry Christmas
Lots of hugs

The Shuttle Hive: A Century of Rising Threads

Been lucky enough this summer to participate to a action of the National Museum of Ireland which was a commemorative collection from designer Alison Conneely and inspired by the role of women in the War of Independence.
This exhibition is running until Jan 2017.
"The exhibited collection will display six themed garment panels – reflecting themes from rebellion and resistance to family and domestic life – each consisting of three items of clothing created by Conneely. The panels are inspired by the various roles played by women during this war-time period: as rebels; spies; uniform makers; nurses; messengers; symbols of old Ireland; and revolution directors. Alison’s vision is of a ‘tapestry of values’, and she has used fabrics that evoke both rebellion and modernity, with an ultimate dream of evoking a new myth that is both complex and clean cut."
Me and my friend have been attended the Weaving Workshops where we created small pieces of weaving art .

Here is my finish piece of weaving which in the picture below is  3d from up . My idea was to present the bloody dripping days of 1916.

The exhibition is very interesting 
 Very happy to be part of this project too. 

Happy crafting all
