The Smallest Stitches


Following on from the Stitches & Craft show, I've been busting myself to get cracking on the printed fabric I bought from Lisa Tilse. It's going to be part of a quilt for one of my friend's new babes.

My curse per stitch ratio is particularly high at the moment, quite impressive really. I am quite talented when it comes to getting my floss in a tangle. I would even say I am excelling at tangling it. Maybe I should try embroidering cursive fonts. Get it? Get it?!

Underneath is a vintage tablecloth I found once at a sale. It had already been printed up with the embroidery pattern, but it had never realised it's potential (ie it's never been embroidered), so I've been working on that too.

may all your tangles be tiny. (I'm planning on working that statement into my life a little more)

I bought several of these such was the love I felt for them! Now I just have to learn to embroider...

I think it is looking lovely!!! And I think floss does it on purpose sometimes, in spite, it's a mean spirited floss not your ability!

ooohhh quilt you say - sounds exciting. I hadn't seen any of LIsa's stuff before the show and I am so glad everyone has been playing show and tell because all her designs looked lovely
