Transfer

I love the simplicity of the little tissue paper transfers, a thin blue line waiting to be transformed, or not...


My very dull, black sketchbook needed a cover so I painted it with a bit of quick drying eggshell I found under the sink and rooted out some transfers that have been in the back of a needlework book for about 30 years. I had a bit of fine cream wool from a nightdress to hand and kept it simple with some Danish flat embroidery thread which I have adored since I got it about 15 years ago.


I was going for a 1930's nursery feel and I am chuffed to bits, looks great on the sketchbook - will post tomorrow - but now I need to do more.
