Alphabet Tuesday: C is for Castle

Hello, hello, its Tuesday again. This week its a castle, with teeny yellow flags fluttering from the turrets. I left out some of the finer detail on this one, mainly all the black outlining. Maybe its more medieval to have six panes of glass in your castle windows, but I went for a more conventional four panes. Putting all the little pieces together to make this picture was fun, a kind of fabric jigsaw.

After I made this piece I decided to abandon any idea of doing any applique stitching around the edges of the work, it would probably just ruin the clean lines, as a wall hanging I think just using fusible interfacing is OK.

On the alphabet front, I am waiting for a few sample letters from an Etsy seller to see how they look. Also, I have a lovely reader from the USA called Mary who left a comment last week on how I might make my own fabric letters. How nice is that! I love it when someone takes the time to share stuff like that. Thanks Mary.

Happy Tuesday.
