Stitching the days of the week + Looking for Yoko

My lovely friend Jenny of Elefantz released her new Stitchery Club patterns last week and as soon as I saw them I knew they belonged in my hoop.  Because I have been working with such brightly coloured wool felt in my Wendy Williams Round the Garden quilt (and loving it) I felt like a change and used beautiful, soft and pretty Larkspur from Cottage Garden threads to stitch Monday.
Today I'm linking up with the  'Patchwork with Stitchery' sew-a-long hosted by Martina at Sunshine Quilting. Thanks to Martina for the chance to share.
I have a lovely bloggy friend who also lives in Melbourne...Melbourne Florida. Kelly is searching for the Yoko Saito houses pattern that was printed in Quiltmania a couple of years ago.  It was also released as a pattern.
If you have the pattern and have finished the quilt or have changed your mind please get in touch with me and I'll put you in touch with Kelly.  It would be fabulous if we could help in her search.
Many, many thanks to wonderful, super talented mother daughter team, Lisa and Sarah from A Spoonful of Sugar for sharing the pattern for this delightful Liberty Pencil Case.

Have a wonderful day
I'm saving my energy for an exciting adventure to celebrate Sam's birthday tomorrow.
PS A huge Happy Birthday to my lovely son, Jack,   27 today...hooray


  1. Oooh, so lovely, Melody! I love these varigated threads very much and this is another wonderful colorblend. And your stitchery looks very delicate! So beautiful! Thanks also for the free pattern link! It is always fun to try out these things.
    Have a wonderful weekend, hugs martina

  2. Your Monday stitchery is lovely.. Nice colours... Such different work from the wool houses quilt

  3. Very pretty stitching, my dear. May I ask, where do you buy your Cottage Garden Threads? My local LNS no longer stocks them. thx.

  4. What a beautiful stitchery Melody! I love the pretty variegated thread you have used! Hope you have a lovely weekend! Christine x

  5. Jenny designs beautiful works, doesn't she. Your stitching is superb.

  6. Such sweet stitcheries Jenny has. Love your thread. I have done a couple of those Yoko appliques, infact I found one the other day when I was cleaning up. I have one in progress too. If I can find the pattern I shall let you know. Need to finish tidying up LOL.

  7. Love, love the variegated threads. Lovely, simply lovely. Hope you're feeling well - and Happy Birthday to your son!

  8. Would you believe that I also live in Melbourne, Fl--so if Kelly has a blog site or email, pass my site on to her--would love to hear from her--unfortunately I can't help her with the pattern she needs--hoping someone can!!
    love your stitcheries--
    love and laughter. di

  9. Your stitchery looks so pretty with the variegated threads, Melody. I still haven't finished Jenny's Daisy Days of the week quilt! I must get back to it. :)

  10. Love your new stitchery. I’m also loving that crocheted piece behind it! Yum. :-)

  11. Hello Melody,

    Catching up on your posts, thanks for posting the beautiful quilts on display at the quilt show. Did you make the crochet doily that is in the photo?
