Bullion Rose Blanket and other things







Back in January I was commissioned to embroider bullion roses onto a knitted baby shawl
The photos above are of this very blanket. You may recall that I didn't have a decent photo of it to show you. Well the grandma of this little treasure text me to let me know that these photos were online for me take a look at.  To check out Nadine's blog click HERE

I have done so many bullions over the years I could almost do them with my eyes shut. I used to do a range of babywear for a couple of gift shops making the clothes and embroidering them myself. I am considering making this a part of my website that should be live next week!!  Yiphee!  The handmade speciality gifts I will have available will not be mass produced and alot of love and care will go into them. So keep an eye out for my new website and giveaways coming up next week.

Also, there will be some special things going on if you 'like' my page on Facebook. Click on the badge on the sidebar.

I have had abit on my plate lately designing patterns for my new website. I find it so hard to to be able to share them on my blog! I will have kits available of my designs and also PDF patterns as well. I will be stocking mainly Lecien, Riley Blake, Linen/Cotton Stitching Fabrics and of course Tilda. 

Next week I will also try to get the Android Phone Case Tutorial up for you. I made this like a QAYG method. So keep an eye out for that too.

I am very excited... tomorrow I am off down to Hamilton for the night. I am booked in to do a sewing day class with Lynette Anderson. I am soooo excited.

This is the bag I will be making... yiphee! 

I have just received Lynette's latest Christmas fabrics in stock.. they are just gorgeous.

So ladies I hope you have all had a great couple of weeks.

Ill put some pictures up on Thursday of my class with Lynette..  

Take care

The baby blanket is very sweet, but I'm sure doing all those bullion roses was a real labour of love!
