Love to stitch.

I have always loved hand embroidery, so when I met Leslie from
I couldn't wait to join her Katys Secrets project of the month programme.
I've just completed this pretty sachet to hold some of my embroidery threads.

  It has been a wonderful project to work on and has given me a chance to perfect stitches as I sewed.

Inside there are flaps to hold my threads each one embellished with a Bullion rose.
The next months kit is due at the end of January, I can't wait to see what it will be.

I'm just listing this pin cushion in my Etsy shop, it's in a heart shaped wooden tray, painted and decorated with lace.
Great to keep by your sewing machine.

Only about a week to go until Christmas so I need to shop and clean and wrap and cook. So, not much sewing going on. I've promised myself to relax with some hand quilting though.

Have a fun weekend.

How fun to do a surprise project every month. Your sachet is lovely! I hope your got your walk in. Sam and I can only go together on weekends -- but I may have to take 30 minutes on my own every day after school. The boys and I have had two weeks off for the winter break -- back to school on Sunday. Bleh! Happy New Year! Tammy
