I've been enjoying the little projects we've been working on as part of the Stitch-A-Long blog, and here are my May and June finishes. First is my bag, from the Some Kind of Wonderful book by Anni Downs. I chose to omit the stitchery once I found this lovely linen fabric.
And a sweet little fabric covered button to finish it off
A couple of weekends ago I attended a class with a lovely lady, Sharon, who teaches classes from her home studio. She is a very patient teacher and we were all especially keen to learn needleturn applique. The project we worked on was, as luck would have it, the pincushion from Natalie Bird's Red Home book which is our June Stitchalong project. I finally got mine stuffed and finished yesterday, and I'm so pleased with it. Sharon can be found at O Sew Divine, where you can see some of her beautiful work, it is gorgeous. Thanks Sharon for a wonderful class!
I'm planning on finding some sewing machine time later today, and some stitching tonight while I watch the All Blacks play, hope you have a lovely weekend too......... Nicky x
