Isn't it perfect!
The little stitches defining the shapes give them the most lovely expressions. Even Charly's little tail looks like its wagging!
Lara even captured Wilbur's brown coloured fur on his neck. He has allergies and in the summer months his fur changes from white to a red brown. He also has really dark patches by his ears which are brilliantly done!
I'll share my mug rug in a separate post as there is no way I can follow this up! I knew Lara was brilliant at applique and was so looking forward to receiving the swap parcel. Even with that expectation I am blown away! So, so happy and grateful. Thanks a million, Lara!
Lara has a book coming out in December called Crafted Applique - New possibilities. Seriously if you want to see more of this fab work check out the book, you can pre-order already.
Lara also sent me some fussy cut squares to start me off on my Polaroid quilt and some lovely feather fabric too!
I have my new mug rug up on the wall already, looking down on me, where I sew at the kitchen table.
Happy Friday everyone - hope all have a great weekend and big thank you to Lara. Cheers!
