At long last, the hand applique and hand embroidery has been completed. This pattern is the Sewing Circle Basket by Lynette Anderson Designs. This was bought as a kit from Lynette's online shop Little Quilt Store last year, and I''ve been dipping in and out of this project for the past 6 months. The beautiful design shown below will become the lid for a beautiful basket to keep all of my sewing bits and pieces in...
...the hand embroidery was all stitched using a selection of variegated Valdani embroidery threads, and I used the Apliquick method for the applique. The next step is to make 111 hexies. Not nice large hexies - but tiny half inch hexies - as you may know hexies are not my favourites, so I'm going to use pre-cut iron-on hexie papers, to see if that makes the task any more enjoyable!
