A couple of weeks ago, US005 and US006 of United Stitches by Rosalie Quinlan arrived all the way from Under The Mulberry Tree in Australia, and I couldn't wait to get started on these little stitcheries! I fused some soft interfacing to the back of the screen printed linen, popped the first one in my hoop and I was ready for an evening of stitching!...
...these Cosmo threads really are beautiful to stitch with. I was having a few issues with the thread shredding, but a new packet of John James embroidery needles soon solved that problem! Once US005 was completed, it was time to make a start on US006. Both stitchery designs are printed twice, so I can make 2 wall hangings for my daughters...
...and then it was time for a quick photo-shoot this morning, and then I can start stitcheries US007 and US008. Once these are all completed, they will will be cut into 4.5" blocks, and pieced together with Rosalie Quinlan Designs "Chirpy Lola" fabric range.
