Recently I have stitched a couple of stuffies from Melly & Me's pattern Stuffie Play. I have two more to make to complete the set and thought I would make up a simple drawstring bag for their home before giving away to a friend expecting in a couple of months. I used colouring pencils to add some subtle colour to the designs.
On the shop front I have new pattern releases from Bronwyn Hayes of Red Brolly - Yes, the Blueberry Girls have arrived in full bloom... and don't forget to have a look at her other new pattern Fun Girls Quilt.
Natalie Bird of The Birdhouse has produced two new little stitchery wall hangings featuring hand painted buttons from Theodora Cleave. These are compact little projects that fit easily in your handbag so you can slip in a few stitches while waiting on children at netball practice, guitar lessons, drama class, etc. Natalie has included the design screen printed on calico as well, so you don't even need to trace.
I am now stocking the Hatched & Patched range of Quick & Easy wool pin cushion patterns. There are five different animals to choose from. I can't decide whether I will be making Larry the Lamb or Gilroy the Goose first.
I had fun stitching up a couple of Chubby Birds, a new Creative Card quick & easy project from Australian designer Ric-Rac...
I hope you found time for yourself on Mother's Day and got in a little bit of stitching.
