Saturday stitching round-up

There doesn't feel to be much to show this week - don't know why, though I guess it's been a pretty busy week and, as the weather seems to have taken a temporary and long awaited turn for the better I thought I'd better get out into the garden and try to tame some of the weeds at least. My Monday Bunch did come round to stitch so I've finally finished my Point de Gaze flower.

I know I've said it before but I'm going to say it again - I just love the purple!! I'm very happy with this one. I'm planning to stitch it onto a cushion I think as it's quite large.

I did some work on my sampler book. This is the Hardanger page, still not completed.

Because I've been trying to get to grips with the crazy patchwork for the online class I'm doing. This is really not coming together at all. I added a purple lace butterfly to see if that would help me to like it more but it hasn't done the trick. I do have another block in pinks and creams which I pieced and I'm thinking at the moment that I'll turn my attentions to that one and come back to this one at a later date (maybe) ... or maybe I'll just remove the butterfly and throw the rest in the bin.

Now I'm heading off to our local Flower and Vegetable Show as I have two pieces in the handicrafts section and there's also a display by our Miniatures Club. I'll try to get some decent photographs to show you. I'm hoping that it might spark some inspiration in me to get me back into making minis as I've not touched them for two or three weeks. I need a new project - or to revisit and revamp an old one I think.


  1. Hi Judith! Beautiful work as usual! I love the purple Point de Glaze flower most.

  2. Your Needlelace "purple" flower is so incredibly beautiful. Oh how I wish I could stitch like you do. Very inspirational work. Hugs Judy
