Many thanks Cheryll for another lovely evening stitching away with friends. You can see who else took part here
I spent my afternoon and evening watching cricket and working on appliqueing these RSC blue Dresdens to my top.
Then I moved on to my next Wings and Pretty Things block and got the stems sewn down and some prep done on the rest of the applique.
I have two completed Wings blocks to show you
Just three more to do.
Another finish this week was my hat.
I am very pleased with this finish - it is made from a lovely silk and merino mix from Perran Yarns. Lovely to work with and it is going to be very snuggly on windy days next winter.
I will be back soon.
Cute dresdans and those blocks are so prettyReplyDelete
Those are the cutest ladybugs ever! Love all your blocks for Wings and Pretty Things. Your hat is awesome. What an intricate pattern. Love it and the colour too. Wish I could touch that lovely yarn. ;^)ReplyDelete
The wings and pretty things are so sweet and dainty.ReplyDelete
Beautiful blocks. That hat looks cosy.ReplyDelete
I still love that dresden/hexie shape - I finally bought some . . .one day I will make something. Love the contrast of the green wroth your background.ReplyDelete
I can imagine how lovely the hat feels.... do love your Wings blocks... such gorgeous coloursReplyDelete
It's cold and windy with showers of rain here today so your beanie would be great - I'm loving the pattern you've used ?? I must check out that yarn link - I've decided that for garments I want to use yarns that will do a good job and sit nicely & I'll use my stash (that doesn't fit the criteria) up for blankets and such. Loving the wings embroideries - what are you planning to make once you have the blocks completed? Enjoy your warmer weather over thereReplyDelete
Love all the appliqué and the beanie is gorgeous. Thanks for joining in FNwF xoxReplyDelete

So beautiful the blocks and the "Dresdens" and the hat is great, I love cable knits.ReplyDelete
Greetings from Viola... Happy Pentecost
The yarn in your hat is such a pretty colour; as is the pattern. You won't need to wear that for a while?? The appliques are beautiful and the dresdens are looking fabulous. Don't they look great on the grey background.ReplyDelete
Beautiful blocks -- I'm particularly fond of dragonflies! Love the hat. It looks very warm and soft.ReplyDelete
