I have been stitching this hardanger bellpull for a while. I give hardanger lessons on a part time basis, so this is going to be a sample for my hardanger class. Here is the WIP. The charted piece was stitched on dark fabric and thread. I changed the fabric to a lighter cream Colmar 25ct and use DMC 801 & 435 perle 8 cotton for the threads. I tend to change the pattern also as I stitch along so this could end up very different from what is being charted.
The BBD needlebook is finally completed. I love Barb's instructions on finishing this needlebook, you will see more needlebooks soon. This is the first sewing accessory with the 2009 Loose Feather pattern. Next, I will be stitching the pincushion, the accessory that comes with Loose Feather #36.
My DS wanted a cross stitch coaster. I stitched part of "Luck" on vinyl using DMC 4050 and 319. I should had used a different color for the letter L, it got blended in with the clovers. You can find this freebie here.
Look at this cute Quaker pin cube. I saw this cube on Mylene's blog and could not resist stitching it. It's a Quaker. The pin cube was a mini SAL hosted by Stitch-Creations.
Gillie was my partner for the Summer Exchange on the wXSw Group. She stitched for me a lovely biscornu in my favourite color. Look at the goodies she sent me! Thank you, Gillie, for a lovely exchange.
I had completed my two free sewing lessons with Brother when I bought the sewing machine. I learned to handle the machine and the various functions, hope to use the machine for finishing jobs in the future.
I pick up patchwork recently and enjoy the many quilters' blogs I found. I had added Vicky's button on my blog, she has free BOM on her blog. Enjoy her blog and check out the BOM, they are gorgeous.
