Patchwork with stitchery SAL link up

Today is the first link up with Martina of Sunshine Quilting, who is hosting a new sew-a-long for any patchwork with stitchery patterns.  Previously, the sew-a-long had been just for Gail Pan patterns but, this has now been expanded to include patterns from any designers.


The first little project I want to share is one that I actually stitched a while ago but, I have always loved it and thought it would be nice to include it here.


The pattern is from a book by Anni Downs called 'A Family Gathering'.  I love Anni's patterns and I just couldn't resist making this little stitchery called 'Home Sweet Home'. 


In the book Anni makes the stitchery into a framed picture but I chose to make it into a tiny wall hanging.  I added some prairie points at the bottom decorated with rice beads.  


It hangs in the hall of my house, welcoming people to my home!


Do pop over to Martina's to see the other beautiful projects that have been linked up in the sew-a-long.

  1. Hello Christine, this is a pretty little house; the fabric you used for the frame complements it beautifully.

  4. Liebe Christine,
    die Muster von Anni Downs mag ich auch sehr. Du hast sehr schön zarte Farben für die Umrandung ausgesucht. Das gefällt mir zusammen richtig gut.
    Ich war diesen Monat nicht fleißig, es gab so viel anderes zu tun....
    Liebe Grüße
