I expect most of you will have heard about the Stitchalong Sundays with Chrissie here - if not, do take a look at her lovely blog, and I hope you decide to come along for the fun!
I am definitely in, for I know this will be very encouraging and inspiring, as well as fun! Now if I got my facts right I believe that Chrissie would like us to post about what we're planning to make, and also to update as we make progress, so I thought I'd just let you have a look-see at what Ive made a start on. This project should take me through the course of this lovely activity with Chrissie and friends, whilst still leaving me time for my other WIPs!
If all goes according to plan, this will be a cushion cover with an embroidered strip of 'similar but different' fabric sewn in about a third of the way down. First I drew my flowers (first pic), then traced the drawing onto heavy tracing paper with my iron-on transfer pen. Next step was to iron the transfer onto the fabric and voila! All set to go!
Below you see the two linen fabrics followed by the proposed placement of the embroidered strip, and finally a pic of the threads I plan to use, although these are subject to change as I progress! Well you know, it's good to leave one's options open, isn't it!
So there you have it lovely friends and now I'm off to do a few stitches. I do hope your weekend is working out even better than you hoped for!
Thank you so much for being here, and I'm looking forward to chatting with you all soon!
