4 (unrelated) things I'd like to share
1.Last week we went on a boat trip visiting parts of the Port of my wonderful hometown of Rotterdam, one of the busiest in Europe. Isn't it odd though that when I saw these containers I immediately thought 'Stacked coins quilt'? Which reminds me that the last quilt I actually finished was a 'Stacked coins quilt' and that was last year! *hangs head in shame*.
2.I keep forgetting to mention this wonderful freebie pattern of a Mermaid by Hillary Lang from Wee Wonderfuls. Her new book 24 dolls to sew and love will definitely go on my Christmas wish list!
3. I'd also like to mention an interesting Embroidery competition hosted by Andrea Zuill (aka Badbird) on Flickr. Read all about it here. The idea is that all entries are based on one of her free patterns. The rabbit above is an example of one of those patterns. I stitched it a little while ago for the Embroidery swap I was/am participating in.
4. Soon I hope to share a new set of patterns I've made. I'm currently stitching.the new patterns but I keep adding stuff all the time which slows everything down considerably. I'm also unpicking a lot and trying lots of stitches and colours. I hope you will all like it as much as I do. It's cute and slightly odd, but in a good way. :) Also the Castle Peeps patterns I have been working on with Lizzy House are coming sometime in the near future. I will be giving a couple of them away too on this blog!
