Threads and bunnies and birds

I'm continuing to stitch Jenny's delightful Stitchery Club heart design and stitching a Theodora Cleave button in the centre.  Eventually these will be teamed with some beautiful Tilda fabric.  

This sweet bunting design is also from the same Stitchery Club bundle...and I love it.  I plan to stitch it a couple more times and put various different bird buttons on the top, just like the bunting is outside in the garden and a little bird has alighted to take a look around.
I'm lucky enough to have a great embroidery shop just a few minutes from home and I love to pop in and have a chat to lovely Wendy.  A week or so ago I purchased a Sue Spargo class on Craftsy 
and I am now collecting a wide range of different threads to work on the accompanying project, so Lazy Daisy is a fabulous place to shop.  As we wandered around the shop looking at lots of different threads, Wendy showed me the gorgeous range of Threadworkx  variegated cottons.  
There is another brand of variegated threads which I adore and usually use but these are the same price with double the length so they are a bargain.  I bought three to try so I'll report back when I've stitched with them.

Tonight I will be sewing along with my bloggy friends as part of
Would you like to play too?  Just visit sweet Cheryll aka Dory and sign up HERE.
Our lovely Gail Pan has a delightful Christmas stitchery HERE on her blog, Gail Pan Designs.
So if you are looking for a delightful Christmas stitchery which should only take an evening to stitch, please pop on over and visit Gail.  Thank you lovely Gail for sharing it with us.

  6. LOVE, love, love your embroideries! Especially the free one! LOL! I took a class with Sue Spargo, live in Little Rock several years back and I have been a fan of hers for years. I didn't know she had a class on Craftsy! Be sure and visit her website too. I have lots of her books and several WIPs of hers...I'm SO bad...I wish I could be as productive as you. You actually finish things! Imagine that? LOL!
