So with the sticky, muggy, sweaty heat there hasn't been a lot of stitching going on these past few days, but I've been trying to do a bit here and there. This past week I finished the first of the three baby samplers I've been asked to stitch this year:
Baby Row by Bent Creek
stitched with the recommended threads on 32ct platinum belfast linen.
(please excuse my not such a great photo taken early on Sunday morning)
I downloaded the latest Gift of Stitching magazine the other day, and found several great projects in this issue. One of my friends is having a birthday later this month so I've decided to stitch this needleroll pattern for her - it uses one of my most favourite DMC shades 926 too. I'm looking forward to getting this underway as its been quite some time since I stitched a needleroll!
Another new project in my craft bag involved a visit to my local quilting shop to spend a voucher from Christmas. You might recognise one of the fabrics, its the same as I used recently for Alice's Mrs Perkins giraffe.
With these I'm going to make up lots of these hexagons and turn them into bags - watch this space!!
