Projects 2014

I have started the year off by finishing up a scarf I started in 2013.  I used this set of instructions by Sandra of Cherry Heart . However, I didn't join the ends of the scarf to make a cowl as Sandra did, I left it as a scarf and added a fringe at either end. I did use the same type of wool though which, is the brand 'Drops Andes'. (Sorry I don't have the colour references as I have thrown away the labels!!)

My next finished project is this pretty little Button Heart.  It was sent to me as a kit from my friend.

This month has started with a crocheted hat to match the scarf I finished in January.

My next finish in February was my 'Sampler in Blue' embroidery.  This is now ready for trimming off and making into a small wall hanging. The pattern is a design by Gail Pan.

I also finished a cute little owl ornament.

I completed my 'Sampler in Blue' (A pattern designed by Gail Pan) by adding fabric borders, matching tabs and turning it into a small wall hanging.

I also made a 'Little Hearts' mug rug (but I was too late for Valentine's Day!)

This month has started with a couple more mug rugs.  They are my own design and I have used Tilda fabric scraps.

My next finish was a small wall hanging which I am calling 'Daisy Days'.  The embroidery pattern I drew myself and the fabrics I have used are mainly Tilda fabric scraps.

The next project I completed was a cute piece of Hoop Art.  A sweet little garden angel!

I decorated the hoop with paper ribbon to use as a frame.

I used some more Tilda scraps and another individual daisy embroidery to make a cute little pot holder.

In March I also finished an Easter Sampler which was a free project from Red Brolly for the Girls Own Stitching Club and, it is shown on the GOSC 2013-2014 page of this blog.

In April the only project I managed to complete was my Le Jardin Quilt which was also a free project from Red Brolly for the Girls Own Stitching Club and, it is also shown on the GOSC 2013-2014 page of this blog.

My first project finished in May is this cute little owl bag which I made for a friend's daughter.

I also finished the embroidery for the Ruby Cottage pattern (designed by Gail Pan)

And a cute fabric folder for pencils and a notepad featuring a Pokemon character on the front!

My Ruby Cottage Cushion is another project finished in May. Ruby Cottage is an embroidery pattern by Gail Pan Designs.

I finished a FMQ Pieced Practice Sampler which I bound and turned into a table mat.

My first finished project in June is a little owl key ring for my daughter.

The next June finish is another owl key charm.  This one uses a design by Lynette Anderson from her book 'Stitch it for Spring'.

Also this month I have finished another FMQ Sampler which I have turned into a table mat.

My last project in June was this raw edge appliqued cushion.

My first project this month were these cute little crocheted turtles.  I used a video tutorial found at Happy Berry Crochet for the pattern.

And some more cute little miniature crochet projects: some mice (Happy Berry Crochet video tutorial) and an owl (Hopscotch Lane tutorial).

The next project finished in July was a framed block taking inspiration from a pattern by Mountain Patchwork.  I haven't bought the frame yet but here is the finished block.

My last finished project in July was another embroidered block.  This was taken from a pattern that appeared in Simply Vintage magazine. The pattern was designed by Mountain Patchwork.
