Sttching on the Lake

Fiona and I are so looking forward to our next Stitching on the Lake day in Canberra. It is next Saturday so we are pleased to be able to share our projects for these days. We are looking forward to another 2 days of stitching, yummy food (thanks to Lynne), chatting with all the ladies and just sharing a great day together. This project is a pin cushion made using the felt provided and some black homespun. The DMC threads used are red 347, blues 312 and 519, green 3013 and yellow 783.
 Have some fun stitching with thicker thread on this candlewicking project. Your kit includes the background fabric and the perle thread. You can make either the bag or the small cushion,

 This little basket is appliqued and stitched using your favourite fabrics and threads to match. The DMC threads I have used are green 3012 and 3012, pink 3345, blues 3325 and 931, yellow 676 and red 3722.
This lovely canvas work biscornu can be stitched in your favourite threads. If you wish to use the same colours as Fiona has, then your will need DMC threads 352, 470, 469, 472, 347, 351 and 350.

You could also have a go at some blackwork.
Lastly, there is this gorgeous garland to stitch. 
See you all very soon. Don't forget to bring your favourite cup for your coffee and tea.
