Is it really Month 11 of the Thread Club already? These gorgeous hand dyed Valdani Threads arrived in the post from Lynette Anderson Designs yesterday. I've wound the threads onto these personalised wooden spools, (these were an optional extra with the threads, and they were so cute I really couldn't resist them!!), I've written the thread numbers on the back of the spool with a pencil, and I'm ready to settle down and make myself comfy in my sewing chair and start stitching.
and then I was ready to press these fabrics and cut some strips ready for piecing. I made these flying geese with a mixture of Chirpy Lola fabrics and line. I'm so pleased with these sharp points! ..
...then I made a few strip sets for 3 more blocks, and added the embroidered blocks. There are a few more rows to go, and I'm planning on having a machine-sewing day soon to catch up with some of these blocks!
I finally got my sewing mojo back for these small stitchery blocks, and it didn't take long to stitch US013 and US014 of United Stitches by Rosalie Dekker Designs. These have been coming each month from Under The Mulberry Tree from Australia, and I've used these beautiful cosmo threads for the hand embroidery. These threads have a beautiful sheen and are really lovely to stitch with.
These small stitchery blocks "United Stitches" by Rosalie Dekker Designs arrived from Under The Mulberry Tree in Australia about 4 months ago, but I was so distracted with other projects that I didn't get a chance to stitch them until now. The stitchery design is already printed onto handkerchief linen, and I use a very fine woven interfacing called Weaveline on the back. These are stitched with Cosmo embroidery threads, and really do have a beautiful sheen.
