Lots of stitching happened this weekend while the family was away. Truth be told I was bored to tears. What ever will I do when the children leave the nest? Lots of stitching I guess...I recently purchased a copy of Natalie Lymer's Cotton Floss. It was put out by Cinderberry Stitches which is a wonderful little Australian company. Flipping through the pages I found just the project I needed to sew with a stash of fabric I've been hoarding.
Cotton Floss can be purchased here.
Although I love these beautiful reds and blues...I am drawn to the greens and yellows.
Lori Holt's Sew Cherry is amazing. I know I've said it before but it is worth repeating. Beautifully geometric with vintage colors and feel. I could go on and on...Perfect for this darling pattern.
A needle case.
This is one of 5 patterns in a set that will be stitched with this fat quarter lot from Sew Cherry.
Pockets and rick rack.
This time I put the linen hanky fabric through the printer! I scanned the image from Cotton Floss. Carefully taped the linen to the paper and changed the print to light grey. Worked like a charm. At least with my printer. I need to get a light box. It is on my list. My Joann's coupon is burning a hole in my pocket.
These are just a few of the companion pieces that go along with the needle book. Charming little projects that work well with the fabric. These sew up with ease and will make great little gifts. It is a wonderful book that I highly recommend.Join me over at Sewn with Grace to see other wonderfully made Christmas gifts.
