Stolen Moments is ready


Stolen Moments

After much bullying by class members and others, I have finally completed the pre-production stuff and Stolen Moments is in our on-line shop. Go to Band Samplers and scroll to the bottom of the page. I think it is odd that sometimes a design works from the beginning and sometimes you have to fight it all the way. This was definitely the former!

The sampler was named by my husband, BillĀ  who commented that I have to steal moments to get any stitching done. I have added some close ups of the stitching – the kit does include fully illustrated instructions. The band sampler could be framed or be made up as a bell pull. I like samplers with a folded hem but that is very personal

The Enchanted Forest

,br />* One of the projects in the next edition of Stitch That! – to be posted on Monday the 7th April. *The name for this project came from the wonderful floodlit woodland walks held at Westonbirt Arboretum during the winter months. I was always fascinated by the stories of Hansel and Gretel and the ideas of a gingerbread house with a wicked witch! This project may be worked on linen or Aida as there are few fractional stitches.Stitch That! with Jane Greenoff is the members only magazine with exclusive projects and charts/patterns (5 issues per year).
