Stitchy bug, stitchy bug....

...wherefore art thou stitchy bug? Yup, he's gone!

Sadly, I haven't done much stitching this week, I really can't get into the geisha at all! But I'm determined not to let her become a ufo...she'll probably just end up one of the longest lasting wip's!!

Luckily for me, I do have some stitching to show you. This is something I did for a magazine a while ago, but of course, I'm sworn to secrecy while I'm working on these projects and can't show you anything about them till the magazine is published. Well the magazine landed in my mail box last week and then the finished article was returned yesterday! So without further ado, here's the latest creation....


I really should have given it a quick once over with the iron....after all it's been folded up and squashed for a few thousand miles!!

I was asked to design a tea cosy with the words I {heart} tea and I thought it would be fun to make the heart from the steam coming from the teapot rather than just an actual heart. Here's a close up of the design...



And here's the inside...all nicely lined in such a pretty rosebud fabric.



And yes, I did use my sewing machine to make it all, in fact I think I was asked to make this the week after I had bought my sewing machine!

Until next time...happy stitching!
