Just can't stop...

making cute little embroideries!  I have really and truly caught the stitchery bug!!  As soon as I have finished one little stitchery I want to start another!!  I think it is because they require so little effort to prepare and very few raw materials.  Just choose a design; cut a square of background fabric; press it well (I use spray starch); trace the design onto the fabric (I tape the design to a window and then tape the background fabric over that); press some fusible interfacing to the back (this prevents any threads at the back showing through); place in an embroidery hoop and off you go!  Perfect for stitching in the garden while enjoying some sunshine!!

Here are my latest finished embroideries, trimmed and ready to make into something pretty!!

Hope you like them!
