Well it has certainly been quiet some time since I have blogged. But here I am ! Last week we held the final Let's Get Stitched Sewing Retreat ! After 10 years it was time to close the page on that chapter of our lives.
This gorgeous little Vintage Sewing Set was one of my projects on the day. I made it from vintage linens and ticking.
I really enjoyed putting it together.
I have had the vintage ticking in my stash for quiet sometime and decided to be really brave and cut it up !
I teamed it up with a vintage embroidered tablecloth and utilised as much as I could of it. The PDF pattern and the actual sewing set itself are both available over in my ETSYstore.
Whilst the retreat was on we visited a number of quilting shops in Hobart. I do not go into the city very often so I really enjoyed browsing through the shops as much as all of the other ladies and I did make a purchase or three! But my favourite purchase was this stunning panel from French General.
It is printed on linen and I decided to stitch the first one in chain stitch. I have the perfect fabric to go with the redwork and will turn it into a scatter cushion when it's finished.
Unfortunately some of the ladies left a flu bug here for me so I have been laid up since they left but it has given me the opportunity to start stitching and I am really enjoying it.
The other 3 panels included are just as nice.
Although I think this sampler may be my favourite !
They are going to be great to stitch over the winter.
Let's hope it doesn't take me quite as long to blog next time.
