I'm happy to say that quite a few finishes have rolled off the production line this month.
This is a bag that I've made a few times before. It is the Bow Tucks Tote by Quilts Illustrated.
The fabrics I used this time are an old line by Blackbird Designs for Moda called Rhubarb and Ginger.
Back view. The schoolgirl sampler print fabric is perfect for an enthusiastic stitcher.
No bag is complete without at least a couple of things to go inside so using my scraps I squeezed a zippered pouch and a pincushion out of the fabrics I had left.
See the cute little scissor charm on the zipper pull? It came from Nancy's Victorian Motto Shoppe. I love this charm and need to order more
A couple of cross stitch finishes ...... First is the May Word Play by Country Stitches
The fabrics I used in making the bag were a perfect match for the backing.
Another pillow - this one is Bloom Sampler by Threadwork Primitives. Stitched on 40ct linen using the recommended threads,
Both of these pillows are edged with the hand dyed chenille trim from Nancy's Victorian Motto Shoppe.
I didn't manage to keep up with my May project for Chooky Blue's Stitch-a Long blog but I'm happy to say I did manage the one for June.
This cute pincushion is in Natalie Bird's Red Home book
The fabrics I used (except the one with the big bird) are Rural Jardin by French General for Moda
I also forgot to show the April project which was this little wall hanging from Natalie Bird's book Tis the Season
I think that's it for this post. My friend Angela is arriving from UK tomorrow and we have plans for lots of crafting besides sitting by the pool or on the beach not to mention baking and eating!
How much crafting we actually manage to get done will be another story but you will have to wait til the end of July to find out :)
As always a big thank you for visiting my blog and for your lovely comments.
