Look at what arrived in yesterday's post

One of these pink bags of goodies from the Urban Stitches retreat in Australia ordered from Under The Mulberry Tree Sold out now unfortunately.



Contents including the necessary fabric and threads for each project:
Melly & Me Sketch & Stitch (now finished)
Leanne's House Sew Laugh Love
Rosalie Quinlan Dance of the Hearts
Charm pack of Lecien squares of Old New Fabrics 30s
Two FQs of Lecien fabric

Here is a photo or two of the finished Melly & Me project. My quickest ever finish and just in time for OPAM for September. The kit contained a busy green floral which I swapped for some Bonnie & Camille turquoise Bliss. The kit contained hanky linen which is used often in Australian stitcheries and I was surprised how open weaved it is.





I have also downloaded week 2 of the Christmas Stitch Along The first pattern which I've finished is up for two weeks and each subsequent pattern is up for one week. So don't delay. I have printed the pattern straight on to the fabric as I hate the tracing. Another reason why I love the Urban Stitches kit as the patterns are preprinted onto the linen.
