These fabrics stole my heart...
...so I decided to use them in a special project.
"A Year in the Garden" will be a set of 12 embroidery patterns I'll be publishing in the December and January issues of The Stitchery Club.
In January a pattern to finish the blocks as a small quilt will be included.
Members will receive the six January to June blocks as their December Stitchery Club issue, and the July to December blocks as their January issue.
Over the past week I've sketched and traced and chosen threads...
...in preparation for a month of hand embroidery.
Now to get my household and morning business schedules written in the diary so my afternoons are free to play with needle, thread and A Year in the Garden.
In keeping with my garden theme for the next two months I've changed the free joining pattern each new member of The Stitchery Club will receive to "The Farm Gate"....
This pattern includes the two stitchery/applique designs and the full instructions to make your completed blocks into a wonderful country style pillow!
The completed pillow measures 13.5 inches x 17.5 inches.
If you join the Club I will email this pattern to you as a free gift within 24 hours of your membership confirmation.
All the membership information is HERE.
Perhaps you don't want to join The Stitchery Club but you DO want to make The Farm Gate pillow pattern?
Well, head over HERE to my shop because I've just added the PDF pattern to my shelves!
I gave this pillow to my daughter Kezzie because she's a mad gardener and always fancied herself as a farmer one day.
Who would you make it for?
