Quaker Sewing Tray

I hope you all are doing well.

Well, perhaps this post will cheer you up!

I stitched this piece last year! The floss colours are very pretty!

I finally painted the small tray this year and I assembled the piece on the small tray.

The size of the tray is almost 11cm x 11cm.

Design by With thy Needle & Thread – Quaker Sewing Tray.
Stitched on 48 count Nacré Gander Linen with the recommend floss colours, Weeks Dye Works and Classic Colorworks.

Joyful Song

Hello everyone!
It seems that lately the birds have special attention in my stitching.

A lovely blue bird surrounded by pink flowers…

More birds and a gorgeous tree…

The house took me some time to stitch and at the beginning I was not pleased with the colour, but in the end it seems that everything made sense and now I really like the effect of the colour of the house.

Design by Samplers Not Forgotten – Joyful Song.
Stitched on Newcastle Linen 40 count Lune argentée with the recommended Weeks Dye Works threads.

Thank you for your visit today!

Have a wonderful day!

June Berries

Hello everyone!
One more adorable stitched piece, just a simple little cushion.

This design is from the book A Fine Collection by Blackbird Designs called June Berries.
Stitched on 40 count Milk Coffee Newcastle linen with Weeks Dye Works and The Gentle Art threads. The chenille around the cushion is “North Pole” by Dames of The Needle.

I decided to change one of the leaves to green and also the flower stem to green too. I did used for both The Gentle Art Dried Thyme thread.
The beak of the bird is done in satin stitch with The Gentle Art Harvest Basket thread.
The legs of the bird are stitched in back stitch, I used The Gentle Art Wood Smoke thread.

I really love so much that blue bird, I had such a great time stitching it!

Thank you for your visit!
Have a lovely day!
Happy stitching,
