Hello stitching friends! I had such fun stitching and finishing this little pillow. This sweet design is by Atelier Soed Idee and was featured in Das Stickcafe Magazin, which is currently a free download :) I love Atelier Soed Idee's designs and this was just in time for some Valentine's Day stitching.
It is stitched on 28 ct white evenweave in Nina's threads in a shade called 'Old Berry'. It is finished with some beautiful patchwork fabric and trimmed with lace and buttons.
I also started a course in Reticella lace with Lee Albrecht recently. I have been wanting to learn this technique for a long time and it is such a privilege to be part of the group learning this beautiful art form. Here is my first block all done:
That's my stitching update for now! I am planning to finish the block of Shores of Hawk Run Hollow that I am working on soon, but my fingers are also itching to stitch another ornament! (Not to mention how keen I am to work on Train of Dreams!)
Enjoy what is left of the week and have a great weekend!
