Wish Quilt- Block Six.
Here we are at Block Six- with Brutus the Cat Stitchery.
Hi stitching friends-
Not too far to go now before we finish the Wish Quilt.
I hope you are all getting excited.
Just before we begin- I thought I'd share these photos with you that were sent to me by Patti- a friend of ours in Ohio.
They're photos of her finished Mug Bag- and it's truly gorgeous!
Patti's now looking for a special mug to go in it.
Here's Patti's bag before she put the button on the front .....
I've made two of these little Mug Bags.
They make a great gift for a friend or relative.
You can put a new mug in the bag as a gift and instead of tea - try a sachet of your favourite chocolate drink with a mint stick for stirring.
I have this gorgeous little one- cup teapot that I always take with me when I go away ( I know, a fanatical tea drinker!- it's better than those teabags in Motel rooms!)- and it just fits neatly into the mug bag!
Here it is- Block six- You'll be stitching it all in redwork- and then putting a fabric frame around the stitchery as you did for the Teddy stitchery and Santa and Sleigh stitchery.
I bet you're getting pretty good at doing these frames by now!
Here's this weeks stitchery- but download the PDF version- the page below is just to show you what the stitchery looks like.
There are two pages- P.24 is the one with the stitchery design and P.25 shows how to make the frame around the stitchery.
Here's some exciting news that will have you all on the edges of your seat with anticipation.
This year is the 110th year since the first printing of Beatrix Potter's story of Peter Rabbit.
And ... here on the Red Brolly Blog - there's something special-
I've got lots of exciting things lined up to celebrate- so please come along and join us!
