Stitch Me Club. Part 1.

I was away for a week and I am now back home. Just the time to garden a little bit, quilt a little bit too and pack again for another 9 nine days on the beautiful Meditteranean coast.

When I go on vacation, I only take a cross-stitch project with me and never a quilting project. I only quilt at home.

The project I had with me was the first part of the Stitch Me Club of Nataliejo from L'Atelier Perdu.

It is stitched over one and it really gives finesse and delicacy to the design. It is a three-part project and the second part should be in my mailbox by the 21st.

Here you can see which fabrics I will use for the finishing... but I might change at the last minute.

Well, I know what you might think : "Nice setting with the lavender and flower bouquet from your garden but we'd like a closer look!!!"

Here you go!

Looks like my daughter and her two cousins when they were younger ;-) And still best friends.

Wherever you are I wish you a beautiful summer (or winter),
Until later,

an online class.

I just wanted to share this piece of information with you. Jackie Du Plessis is offering a new online class with Shining Needle Society. She will teach the project Thistlewood that you can see on her website (teaching projects / current projects). The registration runs through July 31st and the class starts in September.

Now, I'd like to show you the mini carrier as it is really cute!!!

I am also stitching the "Stitch Me Club" project by Nataliejo that I will show you when it is finished by the end of September. It is a secret project for the summer. It is in three parts and I am working on part 1. Part 2 will arrive at the end of the month.

I am also (finally) trying to finish quilting a beautiful fresh quilt for my youngest daughter.

Until later,

Lady Jane Garden Update

First of all, I'd like to tell you that the photos in the summer posts will not be as clear as the previous ones. Indeed, my 17 year-old daughter is now near Portland, OR for the summer and she has my camera with her...which means I can take photos with my Iphone only.

The finishing of the LJG project is almost complete. I still need to make the scissors fob but I am waiting for the thread to make the cording and tassel. I also need to line the mini carrier with silk 5the one you had seen in a previous post about this project). I'll show you these two accessories when they are made.

But here are the photos what I have finished so far.

I hope you like it as much as I do. It was a wonderful project and I have learnt a lot making it.

Once again, I want to thank you for your comments. They really motivate me not leaving any UFOs behind.

Until later,
