I must admit, it's a bit harder to blog when summer arrives. The sunshine, BBQs, visits with friends & family & nights around a fire all seem to take first priority. Summer is too short right? Well, here are a few highlights of what's currently going on in my studio.
A delivery of Finca Perle Cottons arrived last week! Don't the candy colors look yummy? These are all variegated, which blend beautifully in handstitching. I plan on doing more handstitched quilts & will be eager to use these pretty threads.
I have also been restocking fat quarters for the store. These new prints will be listed sometime this week, as well as some bunting & patchwork pillow kits. There are also some new pillowcases that will be posted.
A little summer sewing as well. This pillow reminds me of sorbet with all the bright colors & prints. I used a chunky DMC variegated perle cotton for the handstitching. I think it lends a bit of fun to the patchwork.
I would love to hear about any fun summer activities you have planned. Is summer keeping you from your sewing machine or do you find more time for stitching during this time of year?
