Damn




This is a lovely pattern by Gail Pan called Christmas Banners


I found some lovely teddy bear xmas fabric to go with the stitcheries
 And wouldnt you think that i have learnt my lesson with cottage Garden threads,to soak the threads before i use them,i was ironing this one and water came out of the iron and onto the stitchery and yep the colours bled,i soaked it straight away and scrubbed with soap and lucky the dye came out.


At least i have 2 ready to sandwich together

Life only comes around once.
So do what makes you happy and be around people who make you smile.

cheers shez xx

  9. Nice save! These are a lovely set. I've had trouble with Cottage Garden threads bleeding too which is a pity because they are such lovely colours (and DMC light brown as well which surprised me).

  13. You have been a busy girl since my last visit Shez! How lucky you were to be able to remove the colour runs. Your fruit cake recipe looks yum - going to try it when I have finished work in a month or so!!

  15. Oh no!! I've never thought of washing those threads before using them - is that what you normally do - and does it work in no more bleeding? (I haven't had the problem but I know it happens) Cute fabric to go around the stitching.
