A Little Stitching

I traced these stitchers angel roses from Helens project on Saturday thinking I would have some time for a little stitching after dinner at the Health Farm, but instead we played with buttons from The Mothers collection. So far I have done this one which I really like, and maybe my secret stitcher will also as she likes Purple ALOT! I have used an hand dyed silk thread from 'The Thread Studio' Opulent collection, it is a very nice thread to work with and the colours really are vibrant. I completed this one using DMC threads 961 and 522. I like the way it has turned out too. Now to make the containers which they will adorn, not sure that I am making Helen's drawstring bag, but you never can tell what may happen next time I am at the sewing table.
I am already behind as the second project was released today, it is a gorgeous needle wallet featuring a design by the talented Natalie Lymer of Cinderberry Stitches. Go on over and check it out.
I chose to participate in Aunt Pitty Pats Bumps in the Night Annie swap and the dolly design this time is by the talented Brenda at Lilliemaes Crafts, who generously provided not only the pattern free of charge but an excellent tutorial on making Annie dolls. She sure has some gorgeous designs so pop over, say hello and check out all her designs. Oh and there is still time to sign up if you are interested just follow the link from the button on my sidebar.
Thanks to all the desgners who so generously share their work - today I'd like to thank Helen, Natalie and Brenda specifically.
Hope your week has started well and there is plenty of time to be creative.
Happy Crafting
