Despite all this outside activity I've been stitching like mad too. I designed four stitcheries which will be going in a quilt I am creating jointly with Jayne at Poppy Patchwork. She's going to create the pieced blocks using the Itsy Bitsy range from Makower, and put the quilt together.
They're in a folk art style, but with a few twists as I've added in a few stitches like bullion knots and Ghiordes knot for tufting to add a bit of texture. Or they can be stitched up really simply in back and straight stitch.
Now though, I can get back to a little creature who is giving me a Paddington Bear hard stare from the table where he is waiting impatiently to be dressed.....x
