I made my first tote bag, combining cross stitch with patchwork. I love patchwork but usually do only small handmade projects. Now, with Brother Sewing Machine, I am looking forward to bigger and more ambitious projects. I am proud of my first Tote.
Look at these lovely threads, they are overdyed threads made in Japan. I bought them from a quilt shop. I wanted to try this new thread and started a small piece, Souvenir de France. This is a freebie offered by Barb of Blackbird Designs.
Yes, I am stitching 1 over 1. This is my first attempt and I am loving it, the stitching looks delicate and petite.
I completed my second sewing accessory from 2009 BBD Loose Feather series. This pincushion can be personalised and is quick to stitch. I found a wooden ashtray at a Pasar Malam (night market) and mounted my pincushion on it.
I am way behind in my big Wips, not much stitching on A Quaker Christmas, BP sampler and LK Flip-it blocks. I got distracted by so many new designs and projects that I wanted to do. Here is a picture of my BP sampler, I only completed one and a half motif in May. I am determind to work more on these wips this summer holiday.
