Yardages of Fabric Stash for my Sewing/Stitchers Purses
Though I didn't do much stitching, I did able to get some fabrics on Thursday (2 top fabrics) and yesterday (4 bottom fabrics). I couldn't resist them when I saw the prints, I knew right away I had to get yardages. I'm thinking of using the reds and blues with my sewing and/or stitchers purses. As you all know by now, I'm into redworks and quakers, the top red fabric is just perfect for them. As for the green and brown fabrics, I'm still undecided which one I'll use for my bolster pillow... the stitched piece that will go with it is the SHS' "LHN-Home of a Needleworker".
Needlework Alphabets and Designs edited by Blanche Cirker, original works by Therese de Dillmont
And finally, another book to fill my shelves. It's a 1975 republication of Therese de Dillmont's 82 plates, originally titled "The Embroiderer's Alphabets, Letters, Figures, Monograms and Ornaments for Embroideries on Counted Thread". It was edited by Blanche Cirker, and I don't blame her for changing the title to "Needlework Alphabets and Designs"... Dillmont's version is way to long to memorize huh.
I have a lot of designing, stitching and finishing ahead of me this week so I better start some now. lol Till next time everybody!
Note: I forgot to mention in my previous post that I-N-N pinkeep is a tribute to Heather Orn of INN for visiting my completed works. The said design will be a freebie on her INN website. I will mail and give the pdf file to her once I get it done. So don't forget to check out INN for this simple and easy to stitch project and for tasty and yummy needlework news.
