SNEAK PREVIEW


I've attached the grapes and stalk onto the Pink Champagne wall hanging this morning.


And have decided to add a tiny bit of green, just to lift the whole picture.
this is worked in Yarn Art Green lutex thread using a tiny size 0.90mm hook.
Need my glasses and magnifier to make these, poor old eyes aren't all they were . lol



the gold cord that I was making has been curled around the outside edge and I have added a curl of gold.

 

 Not sure if I will add more of these curls yet, will have to wait and see.



In the meantime enjoy a picture of wilow perched on the sofa, she's my little doggy and follows me everywhere.

FIRST PIECE OF SCRUMBLE I MADE.



 

Front


Back

I thought I'd show you the very first piece of scrumble that I made, one of the pieces that got me started on the work that I  now make.
This piece is more traditional freeform and not stitched onto a backing.
Each little piece was joined as I went, either crochet or knitting. 

I tend to use childrens or very short knitting needles for all of my scrumble work as they are easier to handle.
I called this piece simply Autumn.

THE GRAPES ARE ON.



 The grapes are no sewn in place, I was going to put 4 bunches on but it looked a bit over the top and so have decided on 3 only.

Now I am making a long length of gold cord to make the vine, this will I hope look okay curled around the grapes, along the side and under the bottom.  But......as I have been known to change my mind it could all change. lol

Instructions for this cord can be found here

SCRUMBLE PICTURE 'PINK CHAMPAGNE' BASICS DONE.




I finally finished the basic background of the 'Pink Champagne' Scrumble picture.
I now have to do the embellishments.
Still more gold grapes to make and beads etc to add.
This is the best bit.

Then a decision wether to put into a frame or mount on a block, I'll have to ponder on that.

CREAM DK AND GOLD MESH.


Another piece fitted and this time I have used cream dk yarn crocheted into a mesh.
I have then scrunched up some gold netting and pushed it under the mesh to show through the holes.

Simple but effective, would look quite nice worked in a larger piece, I shall remember this for later.


Still a little edge left to fill along side this piece.
