Just a quick post to show you the latest items to roll off my production line.
There have been a flurry of birthdays lately so I have been kept busy!
I've made Nellie's Sewing Bag before and in the same fabric line too.
This time I changed things round a little bit to make the assembly a bit easier.
The needlecase is another old favourite. I've made this huswife from the book Remembering Adelia by Kathleen Tracy a number of times. It's so easy to make and always turns out great.
The pincushion is Petite Gateaux by Fig Tree Quilts.
I needed a quick birthday gift so I stitched this little set from a Chessie and Me pattern Chessie's Fern Pincushion and Fob.
I didn't have the Belle Soie silks listed in the colour key so I just did my own thing with an assortment of threads from my stash.
I finished the pincushion in scissor pocket style using a piece of Nancy's hand dyed trim and the fob is finished with a beaded edge.
Finally a little bit of stash shopping that might interest some of my European readers.
I love Nancy's hand dyed threads and trims and have found a lovely Dutch webshop selling little packets that don't cost too much and postage is very reasonable too.
Here's a picture of what I bought
The little try me kits are so nicely presented. Mine has a chart, floss, hand dyed ric rac, chenille trim, two buttons, a key charm and a small piece of co-ordinating fabric to finish the piece. No affiliation just a very happy customer.
There are some lovely freebies on the website as well
So that's all for now. It is a beautiful day here in Spain. I hope everyone is having a great weekend.
Thanks for visiting!
