Day 4 of SUPERSIZE week.. and this time its my BOY MEETS GIRL cushion – perfect for a wedding… or loo (suggestion no 2 from my 7yo daughter thank you very much!). Featuring 2 more infinity patterns – mini and maxi diagonals – you can keep on stitching till you wear yourself or your materials out! This project was stitched on my favourite 7 count base using tapestry yarns – which is what the majority of the Supersize Projects used.
Happy Stitching x

Today my daughter has her schools Jubilee Picnic .. which they are having in Arundel Castle by invitation of the Duke of Norfolk who is a patron at the school…
In her eyes this is the equivalent of visiting the queen so she asked me to make a dress in the red white and blue theme…. and I forgot!
So last night – I had to really rummage in my stash and find something suitable that included the crown that she wanted to stitch on the front. Et voila… I created a godet classic dress pattern made with some left over bunting fabric (yes some of them are upside down but hey its a patchwork look and I didnt have a lot left!), stars from Christmas .. oh and the crown made up from yellow felt from her own design… plus a rather dashing ribbon fastening at the back (as I didnt have any zips)…
Have to say I was a little pleased with the result – although dont look too closely at the stitching as I was getting a little weary towards the end. But my trusty new Janome saw me through, especially with the automatic eyelets!
She was thrilled as if it were Christmas – which made the late night worthwhile…
As for the rest of us? She has designed a tee shirt which I am printing later and will share anon
Happy Weekend x
