However, it suddenly occurred to me that, as we are now halfway through October, I had also better get started on a couple of Christmas swap projects that will need to be posted off early. So I have to confess to starting a new project!
|Applique leaf and stem finished with embroidery stitches|
|The edge of a flower|
It is secret, so I can't show you a full shot of the project but, here are a few 'teasers' just so you know my hands haven't been idle this week!! I hope you like how it is looking!!

|Seed stitch quilting in the background|
I also need to get started on the embellishment of my October CQJP Block which you may recall looks like this....
|The base block|
|After the addition of some motifs from Kathy Shaw's ICQC 103 Class|
I am hoping to get the embroidery for 'My Stitching Things' and the new project finished over the weekend as well as the embellishment of the CQJP block started. We'll see....!!
Hope you all have a creative weekend! xx

I love the Gail Pan stitchery. I wonder if I could find a copy over here somewhere. I never doubted that you were less than extremely busy. I look forward to your reveals as the christmas stitching looks greatReplyDelete
Thank you Gina..... the link I have given in the post above is for a shop in the UK as I live in England. It is a beautiful pattern! Have a nice weekend! Christine xDelete
Your secret stitching is very interesting, Christine. I'm looking forward to seeing what it is. I love your flower basket. Have a lovely weekend. xxReplyDelete
Thank you Christine! It will be a while before I can show the rest.... my swap partner has to receive it first! Christine xDelete
Hope you're going to be able to share the whole secret stitching project at some point - must admit to an avid curiosity to see what it is!ReplyDelete
I will post a photo of the whole project but it won't be until my swap partner has received it, so it may be a little while! Christine xDelete
I am always intrigued by the seed stitch. Every time I see it I want to learn how to do it. Happy weekend. JanitaReplyDelete
Hello Janita! You would have no problem stitching it. It is just a straight stitch. The hardest part is getting the stitches to look random! Christine xDelete
