Needlework Finishes

Last night at Needlework some of the ladies had some beautiful projects to show which they had finished off over the break! Asta has finished this beautiful cross stitch heart for her mother and had it framed - the colours are beautiful and I'm sure her mum will love it!

Chris had finished off this lovely little embroidered "Christmas Chocolate Basket" which was a project from one of the Stitching Days which Sylvia and I hold throughout the year here. This was very bright and colourful and now ready for this years Christmas Chocolates! It's sitting on top of an embroidered needlecase we made a while ago at Needlework, using embroidery onto pale green Lugana fabric! It looks great Chris!

And, although not finished yet, this quilt from the lovely book called "Flowerbed" by Bronwyn Hayes, will be gorgeous when Wendy finishes all the stitching and puts it all together. The book is lovely and Wendy's embroidered squares so far are looking fantastic!

And all of Wendy's squares and the book are tucked away into this great little stitching bag which her friend Jennifer made for her with the quote "A friend is like an angel who reaches for your hand and touches your heart"! Love the fabric she has used with all the thimbles all over it!
