Some little finishes.....


A friend of mine is a very skilled crocheter and I just loved her little flowers she made... this week when she came around she brought me a little gift....

Aren't these just gorgeous.... they are made using teeny weeny buttons inside and she leaves a tail to sew through the button for attaching.....


 I wanted a small thread wallet for an up and go bag with my Field Journal stitching....


It will hold 4 Cottage Garden Threads..... perfect


Field Journal is designed by Katie at Cottage Garden Threads and is a club that I joined at the beginning of last year

Each month there is 4 new thread colours, 4 new stitcheries and 4 pieces of Liberty fabric

I fell in love with the botanical designs so this has been my treat for the year (and for future couple of years as it goes on)

Now that United Stitches is all done this is going to be my main embroidery project.... this is the first one I have done


So beautiful....

Last week Jane brought out here newest block... 9 patches and this is the first that has been manipulated a bit.....


I like these.. don't take too long to do.... it is 14" square

I wanted to make a bunch of drawstring bags … so I did....


There are 8 altogether.... strangely enough that's how many grandchildren I have.... I will have fun putting bits in....

Hand sewing at present is focussing on another border for Wings, having glued all the papers they are beginning to be joined.... I find I am very slow and not very patient with these (lucky I love the designer)

One border side is now sewn and appliqued.....  slowly happening during evening TV time.... 


Any machine work I do leaders and enders are worked on for the tumblers.... and I am at the stage of putting some rows together..... for one top.... I think I might get at least 2 more there are so many tumblers (what was I thinking?)


Hubz has spent the whole day in the garden... mowing mowing, weeding weeding..... I kept away from the power tools... hot and humid so indoors with the aircon 

Righto, Gotto Go... back to that EPP elongated hexagons!   hmmmmm

Hope you have a lovely weekend…..

Have fun filling those bags for the grandies. Your friend's crocheted flowers are such fine work. You always have such lovely projects on the go and I look forward to them developing.

Sweet little crocheted flowers, and I love your pretty embroidery......your tumblers are coming along much quicker than mine, but then they are bigger too!

Jane said...

Love your block and those crocheted flowers are gorgeous. Enjoy filling the little bags for the grandchildren

Maria said...

The sweet crocheted flowers look lovely on the small threat holder.
Pretty new stitchery project and your Tumblers are growing as the leader and ender job..
Lucky you made the right amount of little drawstring bags for the GC.
Nice colours for the block and good to work on the EPP blocks in the evenings..

You've chewed through a lot Fiona! I love the wee thread case you made-just perfect for the job. Ladies at the shop are doing the Field Journal Club and are absolutely loving it, such beautiful little stitcheries and gorgeous fabrics. Cute drawstring bags - what a great idea to gradually fill up wit bits and bobs. Oh Wings border is looking good! It's going to be so pretty with those fabrics.(Mine is still to start-aarrrggghhh!)

Beautiful little crochet flowers you've received. You found a good use for them. They look so dainty resting on your thread case. Great job! Love your new embroidery flowers. Enjoy the EPP. ;^)

Beautiful crochet flowers and they are just the right thing for your thread holder. Enjoy filling the drawstring bags, lovely treat for the grand children. Your Wings border looks wonderful, the tumblers look great too. Good to hear you kept safe and away from the gardening tools!!

Karen S said...

I am going to enjoy watching your field journal stitcheries come to life. There are so many delightful designs.
Well done with the drawstring bags. Another great finish.
And the tumblers are coming together very nicely, too.
Glad you stayed inside where it was safe!
