We’ve been busy getting ready for Young Stitchers.
A Platter of Threads
Doreen and Christine from the Recycle Room gave us a box of threads which we’ve been sorting and putting onto floss cards. Here’s a sample of them:
and a Bowl of Greens
Aren’t they delicious? I don’t know about you but I’m a total threadhead or is it thread tragic?
Now the exciting bit – here’s a look at some of the new samples we’ve been stitching up for the younger members of the group.
Do you remember this retro alien design from the book Felties by Nellie Pailloux?
Well in the book there’s also a cartoon of the little alien in a spaceship and Jillian has adapted it to make this:
How awesome is that? Here they are together:
Jillian has also stitched this rugged up owl from the book Twenty to Make – Felt Christmas Decorations by Corinne Lapierre:
It’s so cute – why wait for Christmas to make this cool feltie?
Here are some cards that Jillian’s also stitched up….. This sweet design is Jillian’s own
This next country rabbit is part of a picture in Natalie Bird’s book In My Garden – Backyard Stitching:
Super Cute Brooches
How about these cuties?
I’ll be back next week with some of the samples we’re stitching for the more advanced stitchers in the group
