durrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. ah well it could be worse. thank goodness I hadn't sent them. Ok I didn't discover it until reading through this post and looking more carefully at the photo. drats.
It seemed to fall into place very well.
- I found the blue fabric which definitely looks like the Ocean.
- Then the fabric for Australia ..not forgetting Tasmania which is defnitely part of Aus. I had to redo Tassie. Chain stitch in my favourite Antique Gold Thread. I was chatting to No1Son on Messenger and he asked what I was doing so I sent him a scan. His first words..... whats happened to Tasmania. I must admit it did look an odd shape. So he suggested I make a triangle, then cut it roughly. It seems to work thanks TP.(you are more help than your Father).
- Printed the first verse onto fabric.
- Burnt the edges (using the electric hot plate) - representing Bushfires.As mentioned before, I was concerned the wording piece of fabric would lift. Lindi suggested stars. Brilliant Lindi, thanks. But I took it a step further and did Colonial knots (we were set up as a Colony) and they were placed to form "The Southern Cross" Constellation only seen in the Southern Hemisphere.
