stitch magazine

I have been wanting to share my claim to fame for months and now I can!!    I have had a piece of my hardanger made into a project in stitch magazine and today I got my copy so can now put it on my blog.

Kathy the editor told me about 3 years ago so would like to feature a piece and finally it has all come together.  The chart and instructions were difficult to do and I was not happy with them but the magazine came up trumps and have done a great job with them, they have even done the chart in the colours of the thread.. The colours I used originally were no longer available so had to stitch it again with a different variegated thread. Here are some photos.

I did the hardanger design for the top and the bottom piece I put my initials and the date in.

to those who have requested more quilt photos I have not forgotten will put some more up soon.

This Biscornu is just lovely. I think embroidery is one of the finest handcrafts I can think of.


Gaia said...

I think all the colours compliment each other so well, and such dainty work too. So Pretty !

I want to make a pincushion like yours today in our stitching group. I had embroidered it a while back and found it in the pile of my UFOs. Hope it turns out as nice as yours.
