Windin' your way down on Baker Street....

For once, I've actually completed a CJ entry weeks ahead of the due date, unheard of! :D

This is my page for Sherry's fabric CJ - I chose the song Baker Street, and based my interpretation around that great saxophone solo that the song is known for

Compared to my last fabric CJ entry for Pam, this one's more painting less sewing - as the canvas fabric supplied to work on had a great texture and I didn't want to cover it all up.

I did embroider the music notes though:

(I've never quite mastered French knots before so was glad of the practice :) )

And I dragged out my trusty sewing machine to add a border to finish it all off

Sonja, I think I'll still sit on this until the due date, if that's ok with you, as I'd hate for it to go missing in the crazy Christmas post


  1. It looks great. No problem waiting until after Christmas rush is over.

  2. Plus I haven't yet had a go at adding a collabor art twist to sherry and pam's previous entries ;)

  3. Wow Sarah, it's so striking! Love it :)

  4. I just wanted to send along some wishes for a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


  5. this is amazing! Is this entire piece made of fabric? If so, did you paint on this? I have never seen anything quite like this, I really do love it!

  6. thanks Kimberly! yes it's mainly acrylic paint on fabric (other than the music notes which were embroidered)

  7. Fantastic! Love the little embroidered notes x
