Bits and Pieces from Last Week

At the end of last week I finished sewing the waterlily!


It's one of a set of three floral designs I'm stitching from a vintage embroidery transfer. Sewing them is making me totally fall in love with embroidery, so expect lots more stitchy things popping up here on the blog over the next few months :)

Last week I also...

... cut out lots of little felt diamonds for a new tutorial (or two).


... put my feet up with a couple of issues of Art Quarterly (you know you've been busy when the summer issue of a magazine arrives and you've not had a chance to read the spring issue yet!)

... tidied up my thread (floss) boxes and ooohed over the yummy colours.

... took photos of pretty flowers (oh summer, you are so lovely). 

... and started work on a new cross-stitch themed tutorial that's coming soon! :)

You have been productive. I love your embroidery and don't you love to organize your thread. I have 4 boxes.

Your flowers are coming along delightfully. I am hoping you have been warned about how addictive vintage patterns are.

ga447 - Yes, there is lots of making happening here at the moment!

Mom Wald - Haha, no, I sadly hadn't been warned but I have found this out myself :)
