Days of the week...

Stitching this past week has been rather sweet.
I've designed a set of seven embroideries for May's issue of The Stitchery Club and the blending of thread on linen with the inspiration of a few Tilda fabrics from my stash brought the first three designs to life...

These are the Tilda prints I've put aside for this project, though I may not use the deep pink spot as I rather like the softness of just pastels...

When the seven blocks have been stitched they will become a set of hanging pockets, a pattern which will be included in the May issue.


I imagine you already know what I'll be stitching this weekend?!

Information about joining the Club is here.



What's captured your attention with needle and thread this week?

  2. Those are beautiful and so sweet and happy, I spotted a little pin with what looks to be a white spool with a tiny bit of thread wrapped around it. Did you make that and can you tell me a little more about it? I'd love to do that for myself.

  4. Good Morning Jenny! These designs are delightful! Your little birdie sure does go splendidly with so many settings; I never get tired of seeing the sweet little critter. Plus, it is always cheerful and makes think of sitting anywhere and just watching the birds. Thank you for continuing to create and share your lovely designs with all of us. Have a fantastic creative day!

  5. I'm finally stitching on the April postcard! I love the days of the week and more birds! Thanks, Jenny. I enjoyed reading the details of plans in the newsletter, and so happy that Blossom is going to be with you a few hours every day during this last trimester. That will be good for both of you. The ETSY shop looks great!

  6. Thank you for your Etsy shop. I purchased a pattern this morning and it was $1.00 less than the Craftsy price. Canada has also experienced a long drop in the US dollar comparison and your Etsy shop is such a godsend. I often purchase Australian patterns due to the better dollar value. Thank you again for this new shop. I love your patterns.

  10. Lovely Days-of-the-Week florals and Tllda fabrics. No needles or thread or fabrics for me lately as I am still working my "jobette" at the Chamber. And when I am home, I am sorting and purging tons of office supplies and shipping supplies. I look forward to my calm days with needle and threads and fabrics.

  16. I think I posted to the wrong blog. I like the window with the gently curving lines. They are both really pretty. You do such beautiful work.

  17. Even though I love whatever you do I like the new version as it is simple and elegant and not as fussy looking as the first. The second one shows the detail better the first one is too busy and the detail is too cramped if you understand what I mean.
    Hope this is not too critical I LOVE your work.

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
hugs
Jenny
