Hi everyone, I have quite a busy post for you today, I have finished stitching Two Turtle Doves from my last post, stitched a free pattern in triplicate because I like it so much, purchased some stash and a gorgeous Paris design Duvet cover and pillowcases.
First up is this gorgeous free pattern from Plum Street Samplers blog here this lady designs some really nice patterns and she has a lot of freebies on her blog. I decided to stitch the design in different colours than the pattern suggested, unfortunately I tidied the threads away before making a note of the colours I used, sorry!
I loved it so much I stitched it three times, (not this week!)I am going to keep one for myself, one for a friend and the other I am not sure about, I will probably make them into flatfolds.
Two Turtle Doves
I finished stitching Two Turtle Doves by Sue Hillis Designs, I am going to finish this into a small pillow but I need to search through my stash of boxes to find the beads I will use to edge the pillow.
Do you like this as much as I do? I love it!
All of the twelve designs in this collection are so pretty, it can be stitched up as one design or individual ornaments. The pattern can be found here
Country Cottage Needleworks and Little House Needleworks are my favourite designers, I just love all of their designs, in fact I think I am addicted to them!
I recently purchased Liberty Lane, Sunflowers In Summer and Home Sweet Home, I got them on special offer too, which is always a bonus!
How yummy are these!
Hand dyed fabric
What can I say about this gorgeous fabric! To be honest I have never purchased hand dyed fabric before, my fabric choice as always been the standard white, antique white and creams, I decided to order this because it was the fabric option for the Advent Calendar, Brooke Nolan freebie here it will be in my stash for a while but it is on my to do list.
When I opened the package I was really surprised, the fabric colour is so lovely and the texture feels beautiful, I can see I am going to enjoy stitching on this. I purchased it from Sew and So here
I have recently purchased this bedding for my new french house, I love it! The colour is not exactly Duck Egg Blue it looks more like a pale green to be honest but it does look ever so pretty on the bed, I liked it so much I got another one to use in my motorhome! Lol.....
I also purchased this storage box that matches the text on the duvet.
Last but not least, I have designed a new mini cat for my Craftsy store here
or you can purchase it from my blog here
