dressing up Mr.Bunny

After spending most of my stitching time for the past two weeks figuring out how to do a couple of sewing techniques on my brand new Bernina machine I was desperately in need of an embroidery fix.
So I grabbed the first WIP bag from the basket and started adding some stitches :) By the end of the session I'd managed to complete Mr.Bunny with french knots,stem,split and satin stitches…this is how he looks…                                                  
finished the swing and started working on Ms.Bunny.

I've joined a couple crochet motifs that you saw in my last post and the doily is coming along well so far                                        
but the tatted lace is still a 'work in slow progress'.

Happy stitching!

lace again..

I was working on different laces this week.I've finished drafting the pattern and chosen the colors for my next embroidery project.
                                                    
Tatting lace with #20 thread and a shuttle for a friend..The pattern is from an old Coats and clarke book.
                                         
 Crochet doily with #10 cotton thread..these motifs are a part of doily pattern from an Ondori book.
                                         
I've finished the knitted lace doily that you saw last week and it's not blocked yet so will show you the entire doily later.

Before I sign off.. thanks to all of you who have signed up for more information about the online class.I'll e-mail you as soon as possible..hopefully in September if everything goes as per the plan :)

Have a great week end !

lace …

I hadn't posted anything here for almost a month. Not that I was lazy or anything but I didn't feel like writing about the new projects until now … 

I had finished a couple of UFO's, pieced few blocks for a quilt,started a new crochet and knitted doily and did some basic sketches for another new pattern.
Here is my new lace doily..




I'm using knitting cotton and dpn's # 12 for this lace.

I had also finished writing instructions and started preparing the kits for an online class later this year. My mother is doing the test stitching for the online beginner cutwork class project right now. Drop me an e-mail if you are interested in this class..will send you the details as soon as I've finalized the class date.

See you next week with my new WIP's. Have a fun weekend!

Happy stitching!
Anita
