I have been stitching

Hello my friends.
It has been awhile but
I have been stitching. Some has been gifts.
This one is the `Circle of Friends` kit.

I stitched it for my friend Katrina but has become a belated birthday gift,
which she received from me yesterday. 

I also put in this lovely pattern of Lynette Anderson`s
for Katrina to make.
`Mushroom Corner` 
A trifold mini organiser pattern. 

This is the back of the thread board.
I used felt and wool stuffing so her needles can be 
place here while using with a project.
The rings are to hold floss.

My start as I have joined in with a SAL to do 
`Sarah Braizear 1829` sampler.
I am working on Lambswool 35 count linen,
with DMC threads.
A helpful book mark to help with each page.

A little more progress.
As the fabric is 36 " piece. Design area 27.06 " x 26.78" so quite large.
 I have ordered E-Z stitch rods
Waiting for them to come.:)
I do not want to damage my satin stitch.
These next three blocks are for 
`Whimsical Woodland` mystery quilt by
The Country Yard.

I stitched whipped chain for umbrella handles,
Satin stitch,french and colonial knots plus back stitch.

Threads are Cottage Garden `Golden Gully` 
and Aurifil Thread -colour 2230 - Ne 12

Some more to show but will make that another post.
Happy Stitching,
