Sunday stitching

After a long absence, I finally made it to Millrose for our Woolly Bits class (and check out the photo on the link for yours truly and GJ!!)

The shop is looking amazing with the Liberty Room all set up

20150928-200505.jpgJacinta had a refresher on lace embroidery, and finished the wing on this bird

20150928-200553.jpgand this one too, where she’s going to add another stitch around the wing

20150928-200632.jpgand I whipped down a bird and started on embroidering it too.

    More beautiful work! Which fabric did Deb choose for the sashing? Like you I liked the orange – really livened it up. I think Millrose is a lovely shop and I wish it were closer to Sydney!

    The quilts with birds are soooo awesome and the orange is the best colour for the background !!
    Congrats ladies for this beautiful work ! I love it !

  3. I have a stitchery that says “my soul is fed by needle and thread” ……. so your soul must be well fed after a day spent with such talented companions! I could just picture you there …… and wish I was with you! Delicious food, as always!!
