Fernhill is a gorgeous pattern by Lynette Anderson Designs, and I'd bought a kit including the pattern and a gorgeous selection of fabrics from Cross Patch in Wales back in April. (Julia puts some fabulous kits together - I wish I had her eye for colour!) Well I'd made a start on the embroidered blocks, then other projects and life in general got in the way. I went along to the Rendlesham Sewing Group this week and needed an easy hand sewing project to take along (it was far too hot to use a sewing machine!) and this was the perfect project to put in my sewing bag. The 4 animal templates were traced onto applique paper, cut out and fused onto the back of the fabric and the edges were turned over with the aid of a glue stick and apliquick rods. Next step is to make a few - well 28 actually - Suffolk Puffs. Then hopefully it will be a bit cooler at the weekend so I can get my sewing machine out and make some log cabin blocks too.
