Stitchy fun and FNSI housewarming prizes

There has been a lot of ‘behind the scenes’ stuff happening at Sugarlane, but that hasn’t stopped some stitchy business going on too……

I’ve managed to do some stitching on the latest  Cottage Garden Thread Collectors’ Club design….a cute stitchery designed by Liz Stanaway of Teddlywinks called The Dressmaker’s Mannequin, using the gorgeous Cottage Garden colours of Wheat, Blue Cypress, China Doll and Kookaburra.  Can’t wait to do some more on this one, the threads just slice through the fabric like a hot knife through butter and the colours are just so perfect.

The theme here must be teddies of late…..I’ve just realised my own design that I recently finished also features a cheeky teddy of sorts.  He’s stitched using Cottage Garden threads too, but this is all I can show you of this project….this little fellow is off to his new forever home, ready for lots of sweet cuddles.

Perhaps he needs to make his way to a whole lot of new homes??  He may just make an appearance as a new stitchery design in the shop very soon! *wink*

And I haven’t forgotten……Wednesday (USA time) is to be my moving day…..if you missed my last post, I talked about it HERE… if you’re ‘Downunder’ and you’re wondering why I’m still at ‘exactly’ the same address, it’s because Wednesday in the USA is really Thursday in Australia….so the move won’t happen till then.   Hopefully, if you’re reading this mid Thursday, the move was a simple, smooth and successful process….I’ve got everything crossed and I imagine it’s going to be a restless night in this Sugarlane household.

But……despite that, I’ve got a prize for one lucky housewarming guest to our FNSI this Friday night…….  as I’m convinced everything will be A-OK.  Nothing could be more appropriate than a Rose House Sampler pattern and a Shabby Roses ‘moving’ bag pattern by the very talented Jenny of Elefantz., especially when you’re settling in to a new house……or should I say, home?

So if you haven’t already done so, make sure you join us for our FNSI  this Friday…..remember to sign up HERE and to post about your Friday night accomplishments over the weekend so we can see what you’ve been up to, join in the fun and gather up some gorgeous ideas from each other, along with gaining the chance to win our May Housewarming FNSI prize… don’t want to forget that now, do you?

Invite all your friends, share the news , there’s a housewarming FNSI party happening  and as we know, the more the merrier, right?

All your designs and stitching are brilliant and beautiful. I would love to have one of them especially the one with the bear and the one you have made for kids. Good Work!
