Stitching on the Lake

Next week is our first Stitching on the Lake day for this year and it is very exciting to post some pictures of the projects that we are doing this time. Here is the Garden Table runner with a lovely stitched garden at each end of the runner. The thread colours have been matched to the fabrics which were chosen from the Wild Rose range from Blackbird Designs. Please note that there was a small error in the list of colours on your original list. It is 3721, not 3781! Sorry about that.

Those coming on the day will be able to enjoy painting this wooden house button and perhaps prepare a background for the house. Thanks to Laraine from Up in Annie's Room for cutting the buttons.
It was great fun to stitch this needlecase using felt and then to make the little matching scissor keeper.

Here are the three other projects that we are doing !   This canvas work pin keep was great fun to make!   The colours used are - DMC 3740, 3041, 3348, 415, 3346, 3042 - but the choice of colours is entirely up to you!!
This useful sewing bag is great for your current project and uses a variety of stitches.  The colours used are 3012, 932, white, 223, 225, 3771, 3776, 931, 3840 - but again the colour choice is up to you!   
Here is the embroidered and painted biscornu pin cushion which will again test your embroidery skills!  Just use your favourite thread colours to create these beautiful flowers. 

Fiona and I are so looking forward to seeing everyone over the next two Saturdays at the stitching days. The kits are almost ready and we can't wait for next week.
