I'm not saying I did a whole lot but I did join in the fun and I did actually stitch..... on this
I love this design. As you can see it's a Bustle & Sew pattern and I think it's gorgeous. It's got a bit of everything.... piecing, hand embroidery and some applique with free machine stitching. How about that for a real smorgasbord of pleasurable pursuits.
I subscribe to the digital magazine. There are some really cute things to make and stitch in them. Really great value too.
I'm using a bit of my little stash of Stef Francis hand dyed variegated silk to stitch the little saying. It's lovely to stitch with. Just seen some gorgeous, must have hand dyed linen threads on her site too. I think there'll be some button pressing going on here tomorrow.
Now for something I made earlier. Can you guess what it is?
I know.... why waste your time guessing when you know I'm going to show you anyway....
Here's Maisie sporting her custom made kitten harness! Have to say it works much better than the shop bought ones which sport more straps and buckles than a bondage queen. Getting a kitten into one of them is about as easy as nailing jelly to the wall. I wonder if she likes it.... or if she feels like a complete prat!
Now... I'm so chuffed with this book I wanted to share it with you .....
it's one for your Christmas list for sure. Me... I couldn't wait for Santa and there is no sure fire guarantee that I can be good for a whole year. A day perhaps.....
are you tempted?
I'm off to bed now I need to get up early tomorrow. I'm planning a lazy morning of blog reading and catching up with all your goings on. Wanted to do that over the weekend but it was not to be... c'est la vie!
Wishing you all a fandabbydosie week
See ya soon...
