I'm getting ready to finally start stitching "Hearts and Happy Flowers" quilt - the pattern is by the Australian designer Leanne Beasley, and the set of patterns and fabrics arrived in the post back in February from Cross Patch in Wales. The kit has been sitting on my cutting table whilst I was busy with other projects! The stitchery designs are hand embroidered on handkerchief linen - this isn't the easiest fabric to trace stitchery designs onto, so when I saw that a pre-printed set was available from Fabric Patch in Australia, I couldn't resist ordering a set. It arrived in the post last week, and on Friday morning I had a spare few minutes to collect it from the post office! I just need to fuse some lightweight interfacing onto the wrong side of the linen, and this will be ready to take along to the Tuesday evening sewing group next week, along with the gorgeous bundle of Cosmo threads that I'll be using for the hand embroidery.
