My latest embroidery project.....

As those of you who follow my blog know, I have had a very busy Summer this year, with not much time to stitch.  However, I recently saw a beautiful embroidery design on Facebook which I just couldn't resist stitching my own version of.


The original design is by Laura Wasilowski of Artfabrik.  I love Laura's designs and I have her wonderful book 'Fanciful Stitches, Colorful Quilts' on my bookshelf.  The quilts and projects Laura designs are always full of colour and they always include an element of hand-stitching which I love.



This particular project is a hand-stitched embroidery landscape and I think was designed by Laura as a workshop to practice hand stitches.  Sadly, I don't live close enough to participate personally in one of Laura's workshops but, I do have a couple of her Craftsy classes and I have really enjoyed them.


I love how this little embroidery has turned out and I can't wait to get into my sewing room to turn it into a quilt.

Thank you for visiting and have a lovely weekend!

  6. Such a pretty stitching. I had not been aware of Laura's work so clicked through and subscribed to her blog too. Have a good weekend. I'm off to a flea fair to buy bits for crazy quilting.

  7. So eine schöne Stickerei, ich bin sehr begeistert und kann es gut verstehen, dass es dich in den Fingern kribbelt.
    Viel Freude damit!
