Embroidery inchie sampler part 3

stem stitch, lazy daisy, cross stitch & blanket stitch

I'm a little surprised that the embroidery sampler is taking on a life of its own, in a good way. In the beginning I had ideas of what I would do, of how it would look, but having a contributing partner kind of throws all those expectations out the window ... and makes it much more exciting!

A snuggly finish 

One Moonlit Shawl all ready to be draped deliciously, or cuddled close.

The time came to set the butterfly quilt free, and I'm missing it already.

Four squares and four different stitches ....


stitchy inchies

Fancywork, embroidery, stitchery

When I was a child in North Queensland, part of our school curriculum in year 4 (8-9 years old) was to create a "fancywork" sampler. Then as a young adult I did "embroidery". As an experienced lady - indulge me please , I now do "stitchery".
Fabric + needle + thread ... no matter what it's called, it is very dear to my heart and I always hope to be able to do it in some form or another.

This cushion has it all for me.

hour glass blocks for Mr. Cottontail cushion 

I spent last year running around too busy to know where I was going, and consequently didn't get time to make my Hawthorne Threads "Cottontail" fabric into the planned cushion.
With Easter just around the corner (again), it's time to start cutting and sewing.


Sweet Pea Lane

Little crocheted houses

Tucked away in a special place where the houses are crocheted and mushrooms abound, there is a quiet little street called Sweet Pea Lane  ....

pretty duffle bag for dirty laundry

A girl's laundry bag

A trip to Rockhampton to visit our son and his wife in their first home was motivation to finally make that laundry bag I've had in my head for a while. I'd bought the canvas and quilting cotton fabrics when Amy Sinibaldi released her first pretty fabric range called "Paperie".

how to make Wynne Bunny's quilt

scrappy mini quilt love + how to

Don't you just love fabric ... admiring fabric, making beautiful things with fabric, sorting through your fabric scraps remembering the projects you've made? 
Using those treasured scraps is a whole new, wonderful adventure.
I really, really love scrappy projects. No matter how big or how small those scraps of fabric are, any piece saved will one day make it into a happy, scrappy project.


"A" is for Amigurumi, adorable, and addictive

Dear Blog ....

I'm sorry I have neglected you for a little while, but you see, what with a happy, busy Christmas and spending time with my lovely family, I've been rather busy.
There's one more thing I need to mention. I ... errr .... have found a new amour. Before you say anything, it wasn't anything you did I promise. It's me ... not you.  
It all started with an apple .....
