Stitching on the Lake

The time has flown by and out first stitching day is on next Saturday! Fiona and I can't wait to catch up with everyone again and to share a day of stitching, yummy food and friendship.It is now time to share some of the projects so you can look in your stash for some favourite fabrics and also decide which project you might work on first. This is the Applique book cover and it is fun to make with some lovely hexagons to applique. I made a little error with the colours in the original letter. Those colours would certainly work but the ones I actually used were red 816 and greens 3012 and 936.
 Here is the little felt mat. It is so lovely to work in felt once again.
 This picture has a painted background and then is appliqued and embroidered. It was framed or could be made into a cushion or hanging.
There is also this beautiful tall mug bag...or you could make it shorter.
This is the useful and decorative thread catcher and pin cushion.
And lastly a beautiful canvas work. To complete this piece Fiona has used 7 different DMC stranded threads. You can use your own choice of colours. The ones has used are 991, 992, 3042, 3727, 3740, 3834 and 3835.
