This has been one of my secret projects that I could not share with you till now. I am happy to say My parcel to Lee has been dispatched & more importantly elegantly received by her and opened. As you have seen my other pouches in previous posts - those where practice for me leading up to making these pouches for Lee.
Close up of some of the MANY different specialty stitches.
Middle sized pouch also made with Anna Griffin Fabric.
And a small pouch I made to coordinate with the others for Lee.
Making these pouches were so much fun and it was all my pleasure to make these for Lee.
The ribbon, trim and lace I hand stitched.
Sue Hillis Designs - "Gingerbread Street"
A new WIP. I started & worked on it this weekend - "Gingerbread Street" by Sue Hillis Designs.
This is the pretty sparkly pink fabric that was specially made for this design. It has been slow stitching for me. The lollipops and candy require 2 strands of DMC and 1 strand of Filament Blending thread. Therefor it takes me more time to thread my needle and I'm careful when stitching not to have it knot on me. It is very pretty in person. I snapped this photo late this evening so I don't think I was able to capture its true beauty (I tried). I will share my progress of it in the future. Lots of back-stitching also. This is one of 4 gingerbread houses (aka Gingerbread Street). I am stitching them all in one row.
Well that's it for now. I wish you all a wonderful week. Happy stitching.
Always with Love and my Appreciation - Annette
