Something new, something old!

Edgar very kindly invited me to join his latest RR - With My Needle's An Emblem of Love. Luckily I had this pattern in my stash so I took a working copy and have chosen my fabric and thread in readiness for the start. The fabric is 36ct antique white Edinburgh linen and the thread is HDF Magpie Tears 2349 (formerly Kolbart Blue) the same colour that I used for Alphabets Blue (here). I ordered these from Vikki only a few days ago and they arrived this morning. As soon as the 'break-up' of the pattern arrives from San Francisco I will make a start.

The end of July is nigh and it's time for an update on Beatrix Potter SAL. July was a busy month for me and I was only able to stitch the top right hand motif and the tiny one underneath that one but at least I made some progress albeit small. I apologise for the poor photos - we are forecast rain and it's dull and overcast and maybe I should have invited Georgia to take them?

Thanks for visiting
Take care

    Catching up on your latest projects Carol - what a lovely pincushion & needleroll - to die for! And loved the pretty blue Souvenir de France your friend stitched for you with the matching fob - too cute. :) I have had Emblem of Love in my stash kitted up for awhile -it's a great project and I'll be watching your progress.

    I love the design that has been chosen for the RR and the silk is such a gorgeous colour.
    Your BP is looking good. I'm slogging my way through this with about a quarter left to do.
