Stitching on the Lake Projects

Sylvia and I are looking forward to our first "Stitching on the Lake" for this year to be held in Canberra this Saturday ... with another one happening again on Saturday 11 April 2015.   Here are the photos of the projects we will be doing ...  Sylvia has created a very cute little zippered purse ...


And a gorgeous little bunting for a special little someone ...



She has also made a fabulous cushion ...   for the colours of cottons she has used in her projects, have a look at her blog here.  


And my three projects are a little travel needle case and pincushion ....


And the inside ....  the DMC colours I have used are 989, 3814, 959, 351, 352 and 676 - however I chose my colours to match my lining fabric so you might like to do the same ...


I have also made a little Hardanger Pincushion .... the fabrics and threads will be provided for this project.  You will need to bring a small tapestry needle ....



And lastly not to disappoint those canvas work fans .... I have made a canvas work glasses case ....


The DMC colours I have used are 799, 3849, 964, 341, 3047, 369 and a variegated thread 4220 ... however again you can use your own choice of colours.   Canvas will be provided but you will need a tapestry needle for stitching!

Sorry for the delay in posting the photos of the projects .... I have just flown in from Fiji tonight and Sylvia is just back today also from a weekend retreat .... better late than never !!  We look forward to seeing all the ladies who will be attending on Saturday and those who will be joining us in two weeks!
