Flowery Mead Trio
The Flowery Mead Band Sampler was illustrated in a previous Journal entry and I had such positive feedback that I went straight back to my desk and produced these three themed stitchers’ accessories. These are included in Stitch That this time with the charts and detailed instructions. There will be a materials pack available to members…..I will let you know as soon as they are ready….
Issue 88 is well underway including the first part of a two part project designed for us by Jane Napier who must stitch in her sleep! Inspired by the Goodhart Collection it is a simply divine band sampler and you will love it!
I think I am surfacing after a hectic fortnight and then Bill and I had a few days in Berlin. It was just what we needed – a few days away from our offices and time to think. As you may well imagine, I lasted only two days without hunting out any Berlin woolwork but then it had to be done! We found a street of antique shops and one of them had a wall of Berlin woolwork and counted beading…..Bill just looked on patiently and checked that they took credit cards and waited to see what I was planning. You will have to wait until Issue 88 of Stitch That! I am not going to show you my purchases yet!
I am now back at my desk finishing off all the words for Hardanger for the Horrified which should be published next month. Advance order forms will be included in your mailings…… I thought you would like to see some sneak previews from this amazing enhanced ebook
Antique Flowers Project Pocket
This enhanced ebook is used on your computer and is just so clever. We have been able to include video footage of the way the stitches are worked and how to cut the fabric threads safely and create divine projects like the two in the photographs above. You can worked from the computer screen but you can print of the projects you are planning to stitch with all the relevant diagrams.
I will let you know that day my copies arrive from the publisher …….
