There has been quite the flurry of hand sewing going on in my house this week. Bloom is finished and has been washed for the crinkly look (and to remove the blood stain!!), all I need now is for the sun to come back out for a decent pic - watch this space!!
The other bit of hand stitchery came about because the lovely Aneela gave me a ton of scraps from both her Sew stitchy line and a few from the gorgeous new Cherry Christmas. I downloaded a E-copy of the Hexa go-go book last week and decided to start off with a relatively easy project, the Rosette needle book.
I fussy cut the hexagons from the Sew stitchy hexagon print, which handily measure 1/2", hand sewed the flower and then appliqued using my machines blanket stitch.
Inside I used a slightly smaller piece of felt and instead of binding I took the slightly lazy top stitching route. So now I have the perfect needle book for all the EPP I am planning on doing on Holiday. Thanks Aneela - You rock!!
Now the reason I got to finish the Bloom this week and not be at work is because my little man has caught Chicken Pox.
the little love is still smiling, despite being covered on every square inch of his tiny little frame by pops, as he calls them.
