We had another super hot day yesterday - and windy, so I spent the afternoon indoors making up kits for the shop. By the way, what to you think of the new banner? - a little more colourful, isn't it.
All three Tulipa kits: the bird panel, scissor case and pin cushion are now back up - they had been out for a while. This is still one of my favourite designs to date. It was so a joy to stitch and it makes me happy each time a look at it.
I also finished this one...
... and renamed it AUTUMN GOLD. The glow of the burnt yellows and splashes of bright blue reminded me of crisp and bright autumn morning. Perhaps I am just hanging out for crisp mornings considering all the hot weather we have had of late. What do you think?
I am really happy with how it turned out. It was fun to stitch and such a manageable size too. I have even managed to write it up so that too was kitted up for the shop yesterday. You can find the KIT here and the Downloadable pattern here .
I am usually no good at all in making useful things from my pieces - once the embroidery is complete I kind of loose interest a bit. Not this time though - I am going to make this one into a smallish satchel bag. I have a lovely Cath Kidtson bag that a friend gave me and I love it - almost to bits, so I need a new, and slightly smaller bag.
Perhaps I will get the sewing machine out this afternoon - just need to move some sheep, net the last few late vines and check on the veggie patch.
Enjoy your Sunday,
