got one of her quilt patterns for Christmas. I'm a little embarrassed to say that I haven't actually made any of her patterns yet, but I do love looking at them. This book has got some lovely smaller projects so I should be able to get right into them soon. Although, I've decided I'm not going to start another embroidery project until I've finished the embroidery for Retro Nine Patch, which will only be a few weeks at the most.
I'm quite interested in the needle holder, since making a needle book has been on my 'to-do' list for a while. And then the matching thread holder would be handy for storing threads in whilst I'm working on a project. I don't keep my threads on cards though, so I might have to rework the pattern a little.
The toadstool, as featured on the cover, is just too cute so I'm sure I'll end up with one (or more) of those soon enough.... although you're supposed to stick pins into them!! I'm not sure if I could bring myself to do that. I just want to make a row of them to sit on the shelf...... which would work perfectly if I end up making The Hidden Garden canvas art (which can be seen in the first image here) for my daughter's bedroom.
Now I haven't shared photos for most of these projects because Natalie hasn't put them up online and I didn't think to scan them in, so I guess you'll just have to refer to your copy of the book to find out what they are ;)
And since I mentioned Retro Nine Patch, here is the latest block I just finished this week. Only one more to go and all the stitchery is done.
Oh, and since I made the challenge to myself to post twice a week for the next month, I'm going to do a countdown to help me keep track. I'm going to say that it's 9 posts from 12th May to 12th June (4 1/2 weeks), so this is 1 of 9.
