Stitching a Pocket

Oh dear, it looks like I broke my promise to myself of not buying a new project. But, I was just so smitten when I saw Victoria Sampler’s Where Stitchers Gather that I couldn’t help myself.

Rather than buy the fibre pack, I decided to only purchase the three main colours of silk. For the remainder of the fibres, I’ll be raiding my leftovers from other Victoria Sampler projects and also my big pile of oops and mis-dyed silk that I’ve purchased from Dinky Dyes and HDF. I’m fairly certain I should be able to put together my own “kit”, even if I end up having to add some DMC too.

Natural fabric and bright blue thread!!!

To keep myself excited, I cut and serged the fabric this morning. Sorting through fibres to stitch the piece is going to be a big job, but I think that by having the fabric ready to go I’ll keep it in the forefront of my mind.
