Patchwork with Stitchery SAL: April

This week is the April link up for the 'Patchwork with Stitchery' sew-a-long hosted by Martina at Sunshine Quilting.  For this month's stitchery project I have managed to embroider two more blocks from the 'United Stitches' project that I restarted last month.





The patterns for the 'United Stitches' project were designed by the Australian designer Rosalie Dekker (Quinlan) and they are really pretty.



I don't know why I set this project aside for so long, I am really enjoying embroidering the little stitcheries.



I now have four little star blocks and I am really pleased with them. I am looking forward to getting started on some more for next month too!


Don't forget to pop across and see who else has linked up with Martina for the sew-a-long this month, there are bound to be some pretty projects to look at!

    1. Thank you Ariadna! I really enjoyed stitching them! Maybe it is because of the settings between wordpress and blogger? Christine x
