Hexagon patch

Today I want to share the Teesha Moore inspired patch I made for Jenny. It’s made of a hexagon printed fabric which I decorated with running stitch, cross stitch, bugle beads and a button. Just click the photo to take a closer look.

Slipped feathered chain stitch

TAST stitch 57 is feathered chain stitch, TAST stitch 58 is slipped detached chain stitch. TAST stands for Take A Stitch Tuesday, an embroidery challenge at Pin Tangle.

I’ve used these stitches many times, but this time I made a combo of them. I used an old Christmas quilt top, which was hiding in my cupboard for many years. I patched it in 2008! It’s the same design as my quilt Safari. I’m going to quilt it with embroidery stitches, something I wanted to do since I saw the pretty stitches on Queenie's Kafferepet. First I stitched feathered chain stitch in perle 5, then I added the slipped part of the slipped detached chain stitch in cotton a broder. I love how this turned out!

Cactus

It’s been almost 2 weeks since my last blogpost, time flies! A few days ago I shared a detail of this photo on my Facebook blog.
It’s a detail of my last crochet finish, a cute cactus. The pattern was in the kit I bought.

Maybelle Garden

A few weeks ago I found a few crochet squares in my cupboard and thought they would make a good start for a blanket.
I bought some extra yarn and made Maybelle squares in all colours.
Now I’m turning them into a join-as-you-go-blanket. Here I’m working on the third row.
