Test Sew Tuesday

I am having so much fun today, sewing with my friend Rita (actually, Rita is sewing and I am baking cupcakes, but it is all time spent together).

Today I am test sewing a new design, the Jacobean Owl.

This owl is stitched in 2, 3 or 6 parts (depending on your hoop size).  I have used a 200x300mm (8×12) hoop and am working in 3 hoopings.

1st hooping is the beautiful owl

The first hooping works on the owl, using an openwork style design, and plenty of beautiful stitches to add texture and interest.

Hooping 2 – left hand side of the owl flowers

 

 

Hooping two is the flowers found on the left hand side of the owl.

Hooping three will add the floral arrangement to the right hand side of the owl.

I have been in love with the fabrics created by Tula Pink, and managed to pick up a range of them at a craft show last weekend.

I chose my colours based on these fabrics, and cannot wait to begin putting this design into a block, and sharing it with you.

Until next time, have a Stitchin’ Day.  Julie.
