Stitch me up.

I was lucky enough to be picked to take part in the Stitch Me Up blog hop.
First I want to say thank you to  Debbie from Busy as can BeCyndi from Stitch Stitch Stitch, Jane from Janes Fabrics and Madame Samm for giving us such wonderful embroidery patterns, supplying great Presencia threads if you wanted them and organising the blog hop.
Thank you all very much ladies.

There was such a great choice of patterns to chose from (geometric, contemporary, traditional).  Also the threads which I bought from Jane were great as well.  
I chose to do the chair and mannequin embroidery. Sorry for the photos but it's been grey and dull here all week with snow showers.
I made embroidery into a small wall hanging for my daughters room which was recently decorated with blues and pinks.  Here is a close up of one of the small folded squares in the corners.  I used four different fabrics.  I learnt this technique from Rami Kim's book and I've used it quite a few things.  It is so easy to do.


I used a blue fabric for the backing which reminds me of the renaissance.

I used the Presencia threads I'd bought from Jane and it was my first time to use this brand of thread.  I loved it.  It was easier to use than floss thread and didn't tangle as easily.  I will definitely use it again.
It's been a while since I did any embroidery so I am really happy with this.  I am going to try some of the geometric patterns next.  If you get a chance check out the blog listing below to see what some of the wonderful ladies have created.  
As I'm off work until Tuesday I'm going to get some more stitching done over the next few days.
Have a great Easter everyone.

P.S.  Apologies to those who visited earlier, I didn't realise that the word verification was still on.  I've taken it off now.  SORRY.
