Stitch + Stitch + Stitch

I am having a moment - it is feeling a little self indulgent - all the embroideries finished! For some reason the quilt top part is making me nervous, not quite sure why. The best cure may be to jump right in. I love the linen base, it was quilter’s linen from Spotlight, the creases though make it horrid to photograph.

What a stunning collection.
If they were for Ella, I'd never let her near it until she's 25. She'd want to "colour it in".

What an awesome collection, they look great, so don't be afraid to sdtart the actual putting it all together (that said, I am still working on the quilt I started around 12 months ago for my little un) (is it called 'working on' when you haven't touched it for 6 months?). Lovely to see the sqaures all together.

Sally said...

Oh so gorgeous. They're going to look so super cool all together on a quilt. Have I told you before how uber talented you are? If I haven't - well you are. Out of this world talented, not just everyday talented either.
What a wonderful mother you are too.
The love that has gone into every stitch radiates through the photos, through the computer and its glory can be seen even here on the other side of the desert.
