I couldn't resist taking a photo of my beautiful petunias on my back verandah. As for my In Full Bloom stitcheries they are all needle turned to their background fabrics ready to be pieced into a quilt. Meanwhile, I have been busy stitching a couple of Anni Downs' gorgeous patterns . I love the muted colours. All I need to do is work out whether I am going to frame them or make them into something.
I have also been knitting more facewashers for charity and now that Qld and NSW are being devastated by floods while Vic has raging bushfires I think I really need to stitch up those 2 knitted blankets that are in my sewing room waiting to be completed.
Now that I have completed the Anni Downs' stitcheries I have started one of Gail Pan's that has a small bit of needleturned applique on it. As I usually applique with blanket stitch this is a nice change. I rather enjoyed needle turning the IFB stitcheries onto their backgrounds so I thought I 'd try it again. I traced this pattern from Vignette #8.
