stitching@bodalla projects

Next Saturday 24th August, I will be spending the day with the lovely Bodalla Embroidery group and sharing some recent projects with them ....... yes another stitching day .... this time "stitching@bodalla"!!     The projects are varied and here is a snapshot for those ladies who will be attending .....     Embroidered Pincushion and Thread Keeper .... your fabric for embroidery is provided and you will need to think about your choice of fabrics to complete this project at home !

Another project is this Embroidered Bag/Sewing Pouch .... you will need to bring your choice of fabrics if you want to finish this on the day, together with a sewing machine to sew it together !  Your embroidery fabric will be provided.

A cute little Canvas Work Scissor Keeper (a companion to the Ribbon & Roses Pincushion made a little while ago) ....  the DMC colours I have used are pinks 223, 224, ecru, greens 3012 & 3013.  (The same pinks and greens were used for the Embroidered Pincushion above).

An Applique and Embroidered Journal Cover .... your background striped fabric and reds for flowers will be provided but you will need to bring some green fabric for the leaves ....

A small Felt Mat with applique houses and embroidered trees and shrubs ... your felt will be provided, together with Vliesofix and you will need to bring your embroidery threads to stitch with ....

A Painted and Applique Jug of Flowers .... this has been framed but you could make it into a lovely cushion or small bag if you wish ....   background fabric and jug fabric (green and white) is provided and the paints will be provided for you to paint on the day.  You will need your embroidery threads to finish this off!

Don't forget to bring your sewing kit which should comprise scissors, a variety of needles, small embroidery hoop, pigma pen or lead pencil for tracing, small ruler, small paper scissors, sewline glue pen if you have one for the hexagons, and whatever else you think you may need .... needless to say my sewing kit comes in a very large bag !!     Bring your camera for some more photos if you wish, but most of all, you can expect to spend a lovely day of peaceful stitching and friendship!  Looking forward to catching up with you all on Saturday !
