There is defintely something positive to be said for this bleak cold winter that we are having - the stitching fingers are very busy. I found some partially completed stitcheries a few weeks back, so put them both into cushions. This lovely little primitive house one is a design by Tracey North of ''I Luv Country'' ...
..and this is one very recently finished - ''Marjorie'' by Barb Smith - I chose slightly different colours to what I would normally use for this as I was inspired by a customer who put these two fabrics together and I liked the combination.
Just this week I finished the little vintage stocking decoration which is the third in a series of classes I am about to start next month. I have really been enjoying playing with stitching and beads on these decorations - just have one more to do and it's going to be a little angel - might just get started on her this weekend.
Block three of the Gingham Girls is now all together - cute little handbags ...
... and this is the start of block four's stitching. I think this is so sweet.
I have to show you these Tanya Whelan fabrics that arrived this week - on a very gloomy winters day they definitely did the trick - just made me think of Spring and ever so slightly kid myself that it wasn't too far away! Aren't they gorgeous?
Wintry skies but busy fingers - and my crochet rug is coming along nicely too, but that's another story.
Keep warm and keep stitching!
