SAN-Q Magazine, Winter 2010.
Everytime I pull this out, I am irritated and frustrated. Tho, some progress made. I have silks from my stash pulled out. I think the rest is over-one, so will do just a little at a time. ~ Mini Flower Basket Sampler ~ .... A Reproduction from the EGA.
The Thimble Purse is ready for finishing - as is the Just Nan's Christmas Secret (insert for needle slide).Birds + Berries Thimble Purse, designed by Brenda Gervais: Chart/design calls for 40-ct parchment linen. I'm not sure what this linen is - must be from my stash. I used GAST Pebble [flowers], Mulberry [berries], Apple Cider [Bird], and nutmeg [Bird beak, legs, floral centers]. Valdani #P2 Olive Green for the leaves/vine. Week's Cinnabar for bird necklace.
Stitched over one on 32 ct Opalesc Belfast W/Simply Shaker Geranium #7036. Pattern and needle slide come with finishing instructions, red overdye wool + fusible interfacing.
So, how do you like my new bag??? Thx GF Kay, w/o blog! It is a great tote with matching water bottle holder. Please note the card - with buttons + stitching ; ) it is clipped to my calendar + cheers up the whole desk area. Back to the bag - has outside fabric pockets - and is done over blue mesh.
let me tell you, the mesh is wonderful for hot/humid days. All my travel gear went with me in style during recent trip. The water bottle keeps the water COLD and is marvelous in the holder w/pocket and adjustable strap. Thank you Kay. I adore it!!!
Lastly, new stash from House of Stitches. Which was ON SALE - and I was delighted to get my hands on it. Strawberries by Hollis Sullivan. I wanted the small motif for needlebook front - but may [ over-one ] stitch the larger pattern without border instead.
