13th March...

... I can now reveal some work I did for Classic stitches magazine as it has now been published. These are some of the pictures I took of the three covered notebooks before I sent them in. To check out more photos or how to make them then check out -

For this piece I used some of my hand dyed fabric ( obviously a different batch from Saturdays dyeing session!)

...It was lovely digging out the old embroidery trimmings to use on this one. I never thought that I'd use any of them but I thought that they went really well with the patchwork fabric and the hand stitching.

I couched down the ribbon in the shape of a bow and added beaded edges to this one.

This one was mostly made up from vintage fabric. I suppose we can class old Laura Ashley fabric as vintage!

...The hand dyed one again with its mixture of buttons.
That's all folks, bye for now!

These are just stunning. How absolutely gorgeous.

And yes, sadly, Laura Ashley fabrics can be classified as vintage. I'm so old!!

I want you to know that I broke down and ordered Classic Stitches issue 85 so I could see the article on this gorgeous stitchery!
