In the Corner

Just this little bit in the corner to finish now. This has been a fun stitch with all the bright colours. It’s a good project to take out and about because the repeating designs mean you don’t need to always be consulting your pattern.

Happy New Projects!

Bye bye, 2020! I hope 2021 is a much, much better year for our world.

BrightSea Village has its new cinema. (The four movies featured on its wall posters are all ocean related.)

Bjerreby, my latest dollhouse carpet is also ready to roll.

And here’s what I’m working on now. I’m loving these bright colours. (It’s going to be in the ElliXS section of my website and I’m going to be all mysterious about it for now.)

 

Speed Stitching

After my false start with my next mini carpet, Bjerreby (see last post), I’m racing through it. I’m eager to finish so I can start the next project. I designed something a little different and now I can’t wait to get started. Look at these fabulous bright colours!

Also, the BrightSea Village Cinema is all stitched up and waiting to be released.

That Moment When . . .

. . . you realise the piece of fabric you’re stitching on is too short.

Luckily I always stitch the edges of my mini carpets first.

I’ve finished the BrightSea Village Cinema and am just allowing myself a little stitching time on Bjerreby, the new carpet, before I stitch up the cinema (my least favourite part of the process).
