First up today, here's where I got to on Reves Brodeuse before I moved back on to Pompeii. Sorry about the crappy photo. The creases are from where it's been folded under the snaps. As you see the stitching is only an inch or so in from the edges....this is me being cheap LOL! Because it will be a sewing case it only needs a seam allowance around the edges so I'm trying to salvage enough fabric to use for something else. For those who asked, the thread isn't anything wildly exciting ....just a plain old DMC variegated, 103 to be precise. This is me being cheap again! LOL
Next is my progress on Pompeii....I said I wouldn't post a pic until I'd finished part 8. Well, obviously I haven't finished part 8, but I figured I'd show you anyway because this part seems to be taking forever. At least the trees are relatively quick to stitch though.
I've been drooling over some new releases today. This is Mirabilia's new one, Mermaid of Atlantis, and probably my favourite of hers for quite some time. A mermaid without scaly boobs - hooray! Hahaha! I love her tail. The fabric is vile of course and will have to go. What is it with Nora and foul fabrics? This is a must have and I've pre-ordered it, although when I'll actually get around to it I don't know because it has quite a pricey list of materials.
I also love this Liz Turner Diehl one - Hannah's Hummingbird Garden. I think this one is going on my wishlist.
