Artex, now that's a horrible word and any of you that have ever experienced it will know about the pungent smell that comes with it and remains until it has completely dried and been painted! The decorator's tell me that the nearest comparison to the smell is cat pee but not ever having had a cat I wouldn't know but feet and cheese seem more appropriate to me! Thankfully the weather has been lovely and hot so all windows and doors have been permanently open and fresh air reigns.
So confined to one room what should I do? I know open that draw that contains all those finished stitches that I occasionally hear saying 'Finish Me, Please!'.
First up ~ Happy Bunny Bunny Day which I stitched a few weeks back but had no suitable fabric for finishing. An unplanned stop at a Patchwork Fabric Shop found me debating over two fabrics which I thought might match, not sure I bought both and still not sure when making a pillow finish yesterday I used both! The polka dot fabric is the backing and I found some matching buttons to put on the front :
Next, Heart in Hand 'Summer Bird' which DH bought a new frame for. HIH added a bee button on their design but I couldn't find one so I stitched a trailing leaf from his mouth (as shown on their other seasonal birds) and added a small flower embellishment at the bottom of it :
