Stitching & Dreancatchers

Hi All,

First up the stitching and I made it onto the third out of 4 rows on Piper. After all the black at the end of the second row I thought my luck would change but went to start the third started with black. But not to much thank goodness lol

And Consumed where I'm thinking/hoping I have reached her hair.(Squint close at the  bottom)

For awhile my daughters have been after a dream catcher for their room and depending how you look at it they have been blessed/cursed with a mother who says I'm not paying that much when I can make it myself'.
And here is the end result.

There are a couple of things I would change next time but they got to it before I had a chance lol
Cheers, Sharine

Piper, Consumed and some hexie's

Hi All,

Hope everyone is keeping well.

Bella would like say thankyou for your comments and she is busily searching for something to stitch on her fabrics for the upcoming summer holidays coming up here in Australia.

And here is my progress this week.

On Piper I finished the second row and started on the third row which is also the second last row.

After all that black at the end I was looking forward to starting the new row just to see it started! D'oh! At least it's not to much lol.

And Consumed has more brown. Can't wait to get to her hair but since I only work on this one a couple of hours a week it might be a while yet.

And this week I joined our local quilting group to learn how to do hexie's. I think a new addiction might grow out of this.

After looking on Pintrest the plan is for a large queen sized scrappy quilt full of hexie's. These are 1" so that might be a long term project as well.

Cheers, Sharine

Ice Dying

Hi all,

So my oldest daughter checks out everyones blogs and always comments on the beautiful coloured fabric everyone uses (that is except for her mum who tries to explain to her that it would be a bit of a waste as it would end up covered- that is not an acceptable excuse).

I do have a few pieces of beautiful hand dyes from Tammy at colour cascade fabrics but Bella found a tutorial on YouTube and wanted to try doing it herself.

And here are the results which have been safely stashed in her craft drawer out of my reach.

Cheers, Sharine

Wipocalpse #10

Hi All,

So glad to be back in time for this months Wipocalpse!

Here is Princess Izzy way back in August

And now onto the next row
Piper Tir N Org last time around

And now

 And Consumed last time

And now

And the question of the month
Are there any fibers or materials used in stitching that you’re nervous to try?

I would really love to stitch on some higher counts but to be honest stitching on 25ct does my head in sometimes so maybe it's best to stick with my favourite - 20ct aida lol.
Cheers, Sharine
