Saturday stitching round-up

First of all, I have to share the fact that I actually won first and second prize last week in our local Flower, vegetable and handicrafts show! My Stitched Therapy book won 1st and my 17th century lace motif won 2nd prize in the hand embroidery section. I am so thrilled!

This week I've been concentrating on my crazy patchwork blocks and feel that finally I'm making progress with these.

I'm beginning to like the purple and green block more now I've got some silk ribbon embroidery on there. Lots more to go on here yet though.

I started beading the pink block. This one is my favourite of the two, I have to say. Well it is pink!

I finished off the first half of the hardanger page in my sampler book - my first ever piece of hardanger embroidery. It's really quite scary cutting those threads.

Then, just for fun, I made a little box to hold my embroidered postcards - very quickly stitched on the machine.


  1. Congratulations on the prizes. I love your pink crazy quilt square.

  2. Congratulations! Well-deserved awards. Sandie
