My first task was to quilt this Gardeners Journal panel. It was all machined together and the binding handstitched down so it was just the simple! task of choosing a thread and then quilting round.
I am pleased with the effect of the variegated perle thread that I chose and the panel was soon finished.
I have had a small square of hand dyed slubby silk on my desk for a while waiting to be embroidered for another tissue case. I decided to try out one of the designs in this pack of transfers that I was recently gifted - thank you Sue.
By the end of the evening stitching was well underway.
I am keeping the stitching fairly traditional - just the centres to fill in now.
Hope you are having a good weekend - we are off to the airport later today to collect family who are here for a week. Not sure what they will make of the weather - it's a coolish 19 here today but promises to hit 30 by Wednesday! C'est la vie!
Have a great week
