Not to make too much of this inclement weather, I’m still enjoying doing a little stitching, and today I took out three patterns to try out.
Two are bag patterns and the other is a set of different sized Owls.
Here is what I’ve been working on.
These stitcheries have now joined the other two that I showed in an earlier post. These are both freebies by Gail Pan Designs.
The final parts of my Candied Hexagon blocks are now done and the task of stitching them all together has begun. Keeping in mind I have a very short attention span, I know I won’t be able to work on this task to the exception of all others, it may take some time to be completed.
This half of the blocks are laid out beside my sewing machine, and I must step over them to get to the machine, this alone may give me the motivation I need to get them all together.
Rarely a post that doesn’t have a bag or two in it, and this one is no exception.
This one comes from the Tilda book, Sew Pretty Christmas Homestyle. The organza layered flower was kindly made for me at a retreat held in June 2010 by Barb O she is a whiz at all things machine embroidered and these were some of the things she was experimenting on over that particular weekend. Finally I have the perfect item to use them on, thanks Barb!
I’m also thrilled to say that I’ve had an email from the deputy editor of Australian Homespun Magazine asking if I would like them to include my Selvedge Bag photograph in one of their upcoming magazines in the Readers Showcase section.” I certainly do!” I said.
My daughter Leah is an avid Face Book fan and entered a competition recently to win a MCN (Modern Cloth Nappy) The idea was to enter a photograph of your MCN collection, sign up as a follower to the blog and you could win the MCN of your choice.
Here is Leah’s entry
Needless to say, when looking at this photograph…..she won! Brooklynn is oblivious to all the excitement, but Leah is thrilled, she had been wanting to try this particular brand and now will get to do so free of charge!
