Stitchy projects finished

At Lets Get Stitched in Adelaide last month,Vicki's project was this  gorgeous little wallhanging, "Monday is Washing Day".  This is such a fun stitchery to work on.


Another finish for this week is a quite old UFO which required just a few stitches to complete it.  I had made the scissor pocket in the same silk fabric as the outer, but as it had no interfacing or wadding to hold the shape it was quite wonky looking.   Its new pocket is not as fancy being made from cotton, but looks ok.   I also had to add the button and loop to finish it off.

I have also finished the first block of Butterfly Garden.  I have admired this quilt for so long.  It is such a happy quilt to work on.

Today I will start preparing block 2.

The washing day stitching is very sweet. Pretty hanging you have finished.
Love the stitching folder. I see you've put it into service, as you should. No point having nice things if we don't use them.
Enjoy the butterfly garden journey.
