Some of my very first designs featured lots and lots of shabby roses. In fact a few of my first quilt designs were "Shabby Rose" quilts and they're still among my favourites today.
The sixth design for this month's Stitchery Club issue celebrates those first roses...
The theme for October's patterns is "A Stitchy Kind of Christmas" so I have added rose topped scissors on my signature bird's wing...
I'd like to finish this design as a hanging bird ornament.
By drawing a 1/2" border around the outside of the embroidered bird I can cut on that line, sew the bird to a same shaped piece of backing fabric, stuff with filling and add ribbons to hang.
If I have time today that's what I'll do.
If not it will be tomorrow, but I'll be sure to show you once it's finished.
There's only 3 days left to join the Club and receive the October patterns as they are emailed out on Monday 17th.
JOIN today and don't miss out.
Just to jog your memory, here are the other five designs inside this month's issue...
Note: A few people have pointed out that my "Handmade Helper" sewing machine is facing the wrong direction, but the thing is that's how I drew it and stitched it. Daft me! LOL!
So, included in the patterns will be two version of the sewing machine, one facing left and the other facing right.
Have a lovely day,
I'm off to give Cully May her quilt. Yay!
