Doodle Stitch Along (week 3)

Hello again! I was a super lucky girl this Christmas and got lots of really awesome craft books including Amiee Rae's 'Doodle Stitching Motif's' book which I have fallen in love with! However having not done any freehand embroidery before I wanted to get some practise in, and as luck would have Amiee and her friends over at Lark Crafts are doing a doodle stitch along with a magical woodland theme!

Every week there are a few patterns to choose from, I missed week's 1 & 2, but have done both week 3 patterns and will hopefully ctach up. I am stitching mine into squares for a mini-quilt but there are loads of fab examples of what else to do in the flickr group and on Amiee's blog.

Here's my week three!

Scalloped Table Cloth

Hello All, have been doing quite a bit of making and sewing this week, but quite a few bits are presents so have to keep them secret for the moment. I did have a go at a really easy technique for scalloping I found in my sister in law to be (the crazy gecko)'s book collection. I plan to make a few more scalloped edged things soon so will make a tutorial to share as I go!
