Well life has been busy but have been working away on some of the lovely projects we received recently at the Xmas in July retreat with Lisa from FignBerry and Marg Low -
Another Marg project I've finished stitching is this cute little stocking. Love the cream on the red for a change (though not easy to trace). This one will be the little stocking, but Marg included some cute tags in the pattern also, so will stitch them next.
Lisa had given us some lovely stitched decorations also, so that's what I've been stitching over the weekend and hope to have them together soon to show you.
The other (big) project I'm working I just love. It is called "Deck the Halls" from Crabapple Hill and is colored in with crayons. Easy you would think, but wasn't happy with the shading with the crayons, however Kim from Quilting with Kim is stitching this one with me and said setting it with heat gives a much better affect. Thanks Kim - this worked a treat. Early days with this one and not a great photo in the evening light (and the patterned background I'm using). I know my friend Karen is working on this one too and the Snow Globes one which uses a similar technique -
And I couldn't resist adding this to the stash this week. I love stitching on linen, and how cute is this linen -
