Sharing Finishes

A minute finish to share, it measures only about 1 1/2 inches. This design is by Donna of By The Bay Needleart. I stitched this Bay View Estate on 28ct Blueish Grey Monaco using DMC threads. Yes, I stitched over one again. It is tiny and delicate.



Remember the 36 patchwork squares in my last post? I assembled and machine quilted them and here is the finished bag. I changed the leather handles for fabric ones, they are softer. I am currently taking patchwork lessons at the Community Club. Hope to show my projects in my next post.



Finally, a picture to show what I received from Karen in the HoE Christmas in July Exchange. Karen stitched for me a design by Bent Creek, A Merry Little Christmas. I love this ornament. Karen also sent some goodies, love them. Thank you, Karen for a lovely exchange.


Currently stitching for exchange, so no picture yet. Progress on big wips is still slow, many distractions along the way.

We are celebrating our 44th National Day on the 9th of August. Happy Birthday, Singapore!

Take care and happy stitching till the next update.
Hugs,
Ellen
