My OPAM for April is now finished! I showed a sneak peak of a project with some stitchery I was working on and today I can show you what it is:
Most of you thought it was a tablemat, but they are potholders. I got the idea from this cute book:
There a lot of great ideas to work with linen, scraps, stitchery, and so on. Making potholders can be very creative!
I made some little changes, I added a narrow border and instead of making the ones with veggies and meat, I preferred to make one with a tea cup. Here are the original ones:
I also like these ideas:
I love the stitched tea pot and the yo-yo.
Aren’t they cute? The tea pot is a simple plain white one, yet so sweet.
I think I’m going to make them pretty soon!
Right now I’m making some pincushions, one of them has a lot of stitchery and the other one is sewn by hand. Sandra, from Quiltathome is hosting a Pincushion Swap, wouldn’t you like to enter? A pincushion does not take long to be made!
The whole weekend is supposed to be sunny! After working a little in the garden, I hope to stitch and to hand sew!
In an old magazine I read this, it is for a stitched bag:
“ When it’s time to dig the garden
and weed the flower bed
I’ll wash my hands,
take off my boots…
And stitch and sew instead”
Don’t you feel like that sometimes?! I do!!!
But today I’ll do both!
I wish you a peaceful and lovely weekend!
