a finish


Very pleased to say we have had a bit of rain... hoping there will be more this week...

This is my corner where I do most of my sewing... little bluebird stitcheries and some quite heavy quilting



This week I finished off my United Stitches quilt....
The stitcheries have been done for some time now and I had some fun piecing the little 4 patch squares together..


United Stitches was preprinted on linen and designed by Rosalie Dekker ....

I quilted in the ditch around the stitcheries and curves in the 4 patches, small scrolls in the thin border and rope in the larger border


This has now take it's place in my sewing corner.  It seems to cheer up that area a bit more with the colour


Embroidery this week has two new blocks for Field Journal


fun getting back to these.... I have neglected them for a while...


The quilt was a UFO which is now finished.... my Sunday Stitchers #6

Righto, Gotto Go..... a Friday to enjoy

I hope you have a lovely weekend

I love your quilt, the stitches and the fabric patches are perfect together. I need to decide what to do with all the stitcheries I have and match fabrics with them.

Gorgeous finish for your sewing room. I have to say I feel thoroughly ashamed of my sewing area - it is always full of bits and threads everywhere. Your fern stitchery lovely and delicate.

Well done on your finish Fiona! I am a sucker for pinks and reds and the sweet stitcheries are so uplifting. The field journal stitcheries are beautiful.

So, so beautiful! What a wonderful finish. The embroidery designs are so sweet and happy, and I love how the simple four patches let them shine. Did you design the overall layout? I might have to "borrow" it, ha ha! I'm glad it hangs above your machine so you can be cheered by this lovely piece every day :)
