Just Darling


I thought it was about time that i got my bucket bag finished.


I am getting frustrated with so many half finished projects sitting around ,so i hope to over the next few weeks get the little ones finishes and get back to finishing off some quilts.


I am loving the flower sugar fabrics,i have had them for years and was just waiting for that special project to use them on.


This pattern gave me a bit of grief at the start but i am sure it was my fault not understanding the pattern,but once i got my head around it ,it was a lot better.


This is a Cinderberry Stitches pattern by Natalie Lymer called Just Darling.

I hope your day is a good one,surround yourself with people that make you smile.

FNSI


For FNSI i decided to finish off this cute pin cushion designed by Leanne Knell


Its quite a quick little project to do


I am pleased with the finish.


I had trouble with the dye running again,when ironing water spilt out on the stitchery and i had red dye everywhere so it all came out with a good soak,thank goodness.


I wanted to add it to this gift.
To see what the other girls got up to go here,a big thankyou to Wendy for hosting.

For my next project i am not going to get caught with the dye running so i have soaked my country garden threads in salted water and then rinsed and then dried on a towel.
