Stitching on the Lake Show and Tell

Today is an unpacking and tidying up day - I have cleaned out my wardrobe and now tidying up the sewing room!   I have the house to myself and all is good!!   Just going to share some inspiration from the ladies at the Stitching Days ... it is always nice to see projects finished off from previous Stitching Days and some lovely new creations also!   This was a canvas work creation just waiting to be sewn together ... and a lovely pincushion too!

Denise had finished off her lovely stitchery from last year and made it into a gorgeous cushion with some lovely Nancy Halvorsen fabrics!

Sharon had made this beautiful needle roll for her very lucky friend Jenny!   The stitching is beautiful Sharon!

And Sharon had also made this gorgeous stitching roll for Jenny as well - now we all want to be her friend!

And inside the sewing roll were Jenny's beautiful stitcheries ... waiting to be made into a lovely quilt!

Some of Denise's lovely Christmas decorations from last year finished off and ready to hang!

And this is Denise's version of the lovely bag from Anni Downs new book "Some Kind of Wonderful" - it looks lovely with the buttons sewn onto it also!

And inside the bag are some more little treasures .... a cute pincushion and needlecase ... there was also a large scissor holder and thread bag!

And another lovely finish from last year from Anne ... her gorgeous stitching bag!   Lots of inspiration there to finish off those lovely projects!  Well done ladies and thanks for sharing all your beautiful work with us all!


  1. What beautiful work. Denise certainly is a very talented lady. Wish she was my friend!!!!. I just loved her christmas hexagons and her cross stitch decorations. Do you know where I could purchase the patterns please?.

  2. Everything is so beautiful. I especially love Denise's stitchery that she made into the cushion. The Anni Downs bag & set look great in that colour combination too. Tracee xx
