This month I took my project from a book published by Gail in 2009 called 'Baskets in Bloom'.
The project is called 'Little Basket Blue'. In the book Gail stitched the design in a variegated blue thread, added some borders and then framed it.
I also stitched the design in variegated thread but, as I didn't have a frame to hand, I just added some borders (using some of Gail's Basket in Bloom fabric) layered the top with some batting and backing and made it into a small wall hanging.
It is a very pretty design and the thread which, is one of my favourite Stef Francis' silk threads, really blends well with the fabric.
I added a few little buttons too and I am pleased with the overall result.
Sadly, this is the last link up at Martina's for this sew-a-long, so do pop over and have a look at all the other beautiful projects.
However, the good news is that from next month Martina is hosting a new sew-a-long which will include any patchwork with stitchery pattern and which will be great fun to join in! I am hoping to have some projects to share from time to time! You are all free to join in too, if you would like to. Here is the button which takes you to where Martina has published details.
