Embroidery

It’s been a very long time since the last post but a lot of embroidery has been completed during my travels. I’ve been 4 weeks in the UK and then at a conference in the US for a week – and happy to be home and back with my sewing machine!

In the meantime, here is what’s been completed:

This cute pattern is the Vintage Candy Cane Snowman pillow from Crabapple Hill Studio. I’ve had the pattern for at least two years and never seem to get around to completing it before Christmas, and then it goes on the lower priority list for the rest of the year. I plan to get the pillow finished up in lots of time for Christmas 2018 now that the embroidery part is done.

This little embroidery project and the ones that follow are a block of the month project from Jenny of Elephanz. Each design is free for the month in which it’s released and then available for a small fee after that. (Apologies for the wrinkles – the little stitchery blocks had not yet been pressed when the photos were taken.)

So far I’ve completed January, February and March, with April and May now waiting for attention.

The blocks will be put together to create a quilt at the end of the year – appropriately named “A Year in the Garden.”

And Mother’s Day was spent happily in the woods (hiking the Bruce Trail) with Daughter E. and grandchildren G. and L. – I can’t think of a nicer way to spend a lovely day.

Happy Monday!
