What’s New for 2019 – Embroidered bulldog!

For 2019 there are lots of plans for plenty of stitching fun.

I am currently working on a new Bulldog Stitching Kit to compliment the Schnauzer one which is hugely popular. This little guy is looking very cute and will be a kit to make a gorgeous charm…

Stitched with Appletons Crewel Wool on to 100% wool felt the kit will provide all you need to make your very own.

I am also in the process of completing a series of patterns influenced by the Baltimore Quilt designs I love so much. These are a traditional take on Baltimore with my own twist, here’s one coming along…

As you can see it looks great even with the Pug needleminder taking centre stage!

There will be a lovely heart pattern available free just in time for valentines for all my Newsletter Subscribers.

More updates on that one soon…

Autumn’s Pallette

Wow, I am seriously loving this Baltimore block I am stitching. Rather than go for the traditional green that the leaves were calling to be stitched in, I decided to think Autumn!

Amazing what a difference colour makes in the overall effect of a design as well as the impact it has on the actual stitching. I can’t wait to stitch each leaf and see it evolve and contribute to the overall wreath.

Berries have proved to be a bit more tricky. The traditional red did not give enough contrast so I am trying this grape colour to see if it suits the overall effect. I think once I add the branches it will give me the overall decision on the berry colour!

Either way I am absoloutely loving this stitch journey and am excited for the next one in the series. Baltimore stitchies will be available in a collection of patterns when they are all complete! Not sure when that will be but keep coming back to find out!
