LJT Part series Summer motifs 9

20th Jul 2021

The last one!! Not particularly any type of Summer flower, but it looks pretty and works well with the rest. I have had such wonderfull feedback from you about this series and thank you for all of your updates on your progress. But, it does mean the start of another set of designs and I'll have more next week about the new project.

One new design has been added this week - 'Life is just a bowl of cherries!' which I...

LJT part series Summer motifs 7

6th Jul 2021

Well, still far too much rain for most of us here in the UK this past week, but at least the temperatures have been warm.

Part 7...how time flies and thank you again for your lovely pictures you are sending in.  I think I will have to call this one a generic yellow flower as I don't think I have a particular species in mind! The shape and colour though do fit the design!

Have a good week and take care.

Happy stitching,

Lesley

Part 4! Getting somewhere now. Many thanks again for your loveley pictures that you are sending in - they are such a delight to receive.

This week, a lovely mauve iris, one of my favourite flowers and, at the moment, they have been in fiull bloom here in my garden for about 4 weeks, but sadly, near the end for another year.

I have added a new design this week - and yes, a Christmes one, but I know some of you...

8th Jun 2021

Hope you have all had a good week and, if in the Uk, a bit more sunshine has been very welcome.

One of our lovely FB group messaged me to ask if I had forgotten the antennae on the butterflies in part 2 and also for part 8 in due course. Not deliberate on my part as I don't think I am worried either way. I have shown the complete sampler today with them added, as I thought you might like...

Our first flower for our new part series is the pretty carnation with a small butterfly. If you prefer a paler outline then give 3799 a try. It is simple to stitch and all of these motifs will make lovely cards as well as an attractive sampler when stiched together with the border.

This time a medley of 8 Summer flowers and a pretty bird house. The flowers are a carnation, strawberry flower and fruit, briar rose, iris, pansy, potentilla  - crept in here as its shape was what I wanted! - blackberry and its flower and then finally a Summer clematis. There is some artistic licence with a couple...

LJT Part series Floral sampler 9

11th May 2021

It is hard to believe that we are on the final design of my Floral sampler part series that has taken us through the past 9 weeks with individual flowers to stitch. Some of you have made them into pretty cards and one stitcher, had the great idea of making them into Kitchen magnets, and of course, the complete sampler which many of you have stitched.

The last one is the pretty pansy that we can grow during the year through...

It seems amazing that we only have one more week to go before I add the final design for this part series. It has been really lovely again to see all of your stitched pieces, thank you. A colourful image this week with red hips that brighten our hedgerows here in the Winter.

Two more designs have been added to my Shop this week, one, a pretty picture of a our lovely wren amongst Summer scabious; one of my favourite flowers.
