Shepherd's Bush Fold & a new start



At long last I have finally finished the Shepherds Bush Fold series!

The first kit arrived back in April 2014 and there were six kits in total, each one I thoroughly enjoyed stitching. 

I pretty much thought right from the start of the series that I'd make the A Full Heart piece into a project bag of some sort. It was just a matter of finding some matching fabrics, which I did, picking up several suitable fat quarters at the local quilt show back in March.

I didn't follow any pattern to make this particular project bag, and its lined on the inside with a plain cream fabric. It turned out quite large but that's good as I can keep two projects - fabrics, threads and qsnaps - in there.  


I had a new start the other night too:


Basket of Cherries by Blackbird Designs. I'm not sure if I'll stitch every one in the series but the ones I do, I'm intending to make into pincushions.

See you soon x

What a beautiful job you did, Katrina! Each piece is so ppretty all by themselves, but as a set, they're spectacular! You should be so thrilled.
