'Stitch It For Spring' - just one of the books from my mini series.
Making the projects for this book was very
enjoyable, we did all the photography for the book in my home here on the Sunshine Coast.
These lovely Chinese style embroidery scissors are back in stock.
Felix thinks he was the model for these rather gorgeous cats made from old quilts!
They are just 9cm x 14cm and come in assorted colours,
we have a limited number available.
How I loved these Cosmo Multi Work spools that had two strands of embroidery
thread on them (no more splitting the threads before stitching can begin),
Sadly these spools are no longer being made.
We are down to our last few....I have reduced them from $6.60 to just $3.00,
at this price I ask if you can be kind and buy a minimum of 3 spools.
These sweet zipper toggles to go on the end of your zips are back in stock...my favourite are the
mushrooms...no...maybe it's the flowers.....or is it the spools??
The Top Shelf:
We have had lots of gorgeous new bolts of my Bread and Butter
neutral fabrics arrive, they are brilliant for appliqué backgrounds
and perfect for piecing.
The Middle Shelf:
The 'Quilt Shoppe' pillow which combines a friendship theme with quilting is
one of my favourites and as you can see 'Felix' is
also the model for the button I used on my pillow.
Samples from the book 'Rainbow Cottage', there 5 gorgeous patterns in this self published book.
"A trip home to Dorset, England one year inspired many of the drawings on which I have based this stitchery book".
Thatched cottages line the country roads of the village where I grew up, their gardens a colourful sprawl, a tribute to the gardeners who lovingly attend them. The simplicity that I remember of my childhood is still part of the village today, the grocery store still its heart where your news is everyones news and you can buy anything and everything.
Combining stitchery with some traditional simple blocks and some very special hand painted buttons you too can create a simple country feel for your home with one of the gorgeous projects within this book.
Projects include a needlecase, a small quilts with sweet coloured
stitcheries, a framed sampler and lovely pillow.
Hideaway Cottage and small craft case, patterns, kits and the mini craft cases are available.
Well, it's time for me to go and get dinner ready :)
