Vintage Baskets!


The Vintage Baskets stitchery is from Gail Pans book 'Baskets in bloom'. This is the first of many projects that I would like to make from Gails book. I wasn't too sure how I would go doing satin stitch hearts as I've only tackled s/s circles before...but I quite enjoy doing the satin stitch. Only way to learn is to 'have a go' I suppose! I covered a canvas frame instead of doing the wallhanging as in book.

I love the idea of covering a canvas frame with your stitcheries! What a brilliant idea. Love the stitcheries by the way too.

I'm new to blogging and am getting the gist of blog hopping. I love all your bag pictures. My mind is now just buzzing and my fingers itchng to get stitching. A gal should always have a new bag for each oufit.
