I am extremely excited to be taking part in my very first Stitch Along designed and organised by the very talented LiliPopo . The idea is based around the fairy story the 12 Dancing Princesses and will take 12 months to complete. I'm going to turn my embroidery patterns into a wall quilt for Poppy's bedroom, it may have pockets for keeping 'stuff' in, but I haven't quite decided yet.
What I have decided upon is the fabrics
|Cath Kidston florals|
I want to add a splash of colour to her room, which at the moment has white walls, mostly white furniture, a bit of bunting (of course), a hand stitched quilt and lots of toys!
and I know I want to add lace, buttons
and probably some ribbon
I also want to theme the embroideries to the month, so here is January's completed embroidery 'Princess Bee', with the addition of some snowflakes ( a bit of artistic licence... eeek I hope that's allowed??)
I'm using linen for all the embroideries, I think this will create a lovely contrast to the florals
So far I'm a happy bunny and I can't wait to stitch the next Princess. You can follow the progress of those taking part in this Flick group. Right I'm off now to add mine.
Have a lovely weekend!
