I've made a start on my latest project "United Stitches" designed by Rosalie Quinlan. The starter pack arrived a few days, (this was ordered from Under The Mulberry Tree) and I was keen to get started on the first 2 stitchery designs. These designs have already been screen printed onto linen, so you don't need to worry about tracing the design accurately. These Cosmo threads are beautiful to sew with, an the colours are really vibrant. I've fused weaveline interfacing to the back of these designs and as you can see I use a wooden embroidery hoop to keep the linen taught. My favourite brand of hand sewing needles are John James embroidery needles...
...each pack comes with 2 stitchery designs, one to stitch for yourself and one to swap with a friend. I really do love these Chirpy Lola fabrics. I'm not sure how long I can resist making a few of the pieced blocks for this quilt!
