Howzat – Detial 276 May 31st, 2007

I did use the the wire guy, he was flat enough not to distort the fence which was what I thought might happen…I painted the silk ribbon for the fence adding extra flexs of black after stitching it…just a few stitches of green add texture to the grass…
and I was going to make wooden stumps but when it came to it I thought the simplisity of embroidering them would suit the scene better letting the focus be on the bat and bowler…So Howzat!!!

That’s 26 Blocks Done…4 to go

26th block for mum

For those that may like to know more about cricket Here is an explanation of the game.

And I will leave you with a Humours description of Cricket You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that’s in the side that’s in goes out, and when he’s out he comes in and the next man goes in until he’s out. When they are all out, the side that’s out comes in and the side thats been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out.

When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in. There are two men called umpires who stay all out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out. When both sides have been in and all the men have out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game!

    What a Winner Annie! I thought your cricketer Perfect, but your Fence…oh WOW!
    You are sooo talented. The bat looks fair dinkum.

    I think the cricketer looks so natural, but I miss his sexy legs.

    Love the ins and outs of the cricket game too.

    Annie I am amazed once again… A life in miniture… I felt like a little kid when I saw that cricket bat – it is wonderful… Your quilt takes me (totally unrealted) back to when I was a small child and would make my own doll houses out of cardboard boxes… Nothing quite as elborate as your figues etc – but to me they were palaces…

    That looks great! I love your fence. Thanks for the humorous explanation of cricket. My older son absolutely loves the game and it’s all ins and outs to me. =) I’ve sent him your bit, and I know he’ll enjoy it!
