I know it's not Saturday ...

... but here's a stitching roundup anyhow. I didn't post last weekend and I'm away at our Embroiderer's Guild summer school this coming weekend so there'll be no post again. So this is a review of my latest stitching adventures.

The first piece I have to show you is another piece of lace. This one is worked in really fine silk threads - from my favourite thread lady, Stef Francis, again. I mounted it on a piece of silk and then onto the lid of a box which holds note cards.

The second piece I've been working on is my sampler book. The Little House Sampler page is complete and the band sampler is almost finished. There's a lot of spare fabric around the edge of each page as the finished page size is just a little larger than that border around the house picture. Lots of pieces to make miniature cushions for the dolls house and book marks for gifts!

There will be more lace to see next week as the summer school workshop I'm doing is on needlelace, led by Pat Gibson. Pat is well known as both a lace maker and a textile artist and did publish a book entitled Needlelace Stitches - sadly now out of print though I did manage to buy a copy online.
