Stitching on the lake

Fiona and I are looking forward to the next two Saturdays when we will be meeting with lots of lovely stitchers for our Stitching on the lake days. We know Lynne is busy preparing some delicious food and we have been busy making kits and preparing for these special days. Here are some pictures of our projects,
This little felt house is all handstitched using felt.Your kit includes the felt and you will just need the DMC threads, red 221, greens 580 and 3012, ecru, brown 3863 and yellows 783 and 782.
 This little decoration is made with English paper piecing so bring along your glue pen or tacking thread, some fine thread for sewing the pieces and some scraps of fabric.
 Stitch this Christmas stitchery and make it into a cushion or hanging. Your background fabric and parlan is provided and you will need your threads (DMC threads 221, 3777, 783, 782, 580, 3012 and 936 or your own favourites) and a little scrap of red fabric and fusible web. Later you will need some fabric to complete your cushion and some fibrefill stuffing.
This canvas work decoration uses a few different stitches and a little bit of gold thread to highlight your Christmas star. The threads uses are green 936, gold 783, red 3777 and ecru. The back is worked in the same colours. Fibrefill stuffing and canvas is included. You will need a tapestry needle.

This gorgeous cross stitch has been made into a lovely scissor keeper for a special friend. The aida is provided and later you will need some fabric, some lace and a heart button to complete the project. The threads used are red 3777, green 936 and gold 783. You will also need a tapestry needle for the stitching.
This Christmas mandala pouch is worked on homespun using green 936, red 3777, gold 783 and ecru. Later you will need a fat quarter of Christmas fabric, lining fabric, pellon and a 10" zipper. This pouch would make a lovely gift for a stitching friend or you could also make the stitchery into a decoration or cushion.
Hobbysew is coming with a lovely stall as usual in case your forget anything or need some retail therapy. Don't forget to bring along your show and tell and your favourite Christmas mug for your coffee or tea.
