After dusting off the sewing machine

This is what I achieved.

The Goodness and Grace, part three of Shepherd's fold, was made into it's pin cushion.  This is rather large, and as you can see, almost fills the box!

 
 
Here it is from a different angle.
 
 

In my last post I said that I was about to start part four of the fold.  This was a needle book.  Whilst I like the design I'm not too happy with the finishing which could have been made easier if they had supplied more of the spotty fabric that lined the needle book.  There was only just enough fabric and not enough to make the spots on the fabric square with the edges of the book.

Here is the front.


And the inside.



There will be a round up picture of this project so far at the end.

Last week on the rotation was The Drawn Thread.  I finished Easter Eggs and, whilst the machine was up, made it into a bell pull.  B My Valentine, stitched last year, also got the same treatment.
 
 
 
 
 
Here is B My Valentine
 
 
 
Having finished these I still had a few days left on the rotation, remember it has been half term here so I have had a week off, so I started and finished Autumn Jumble, also from The Drawn Thread.
 
This, like the others, came kitted up from my LNS and was stitched on 34ct Café au Lait Legacy linen using the recommended silk floss.
 
 
 Here it is framed and 'staged'.
 
 
 
By this time I was 'jumbled out' and started the next project on the rotation a little early.  It's back to a Lizzie*Kate project. as spring is hopefully just around the corner I have shelved their Halloween project for this month and have started something a little more seasonal which will also require the sewing machine in order to be fully finished.  More about this next time.
 
As promised I will leave you with the parts of the Shepherd's Fold completed so far, and my TUSAL offering for this month, only two days late!
 
 
 
 
Happy Stitching!
