Yes another bookmark!!

I am glad to say I managed to complete my sisters presents on time, therefore I have two beautiful little finishes to share with you:

Yet another Michael Powell bookmark, one may say I am obsessed:

'Bookmark: Tall Italian House' by Michael Powell

And the other is my very first pin cushion finish, still room for improvement but very proud of how it turned out:
Pretty Roses
This finish was a nice little practice to get into the swing of things of sewing. I have recently started on the making of my Michael Powell 'Beach Huts Trilogy' pillow cases. Managed to invest in some beautiful creamy/white fabric and some beautiful white and cream lace for decorations. Hopefully will be able to update you on how they turn out very soon. Though I do still have one of them to finish (back stitching being a pain).

I also have started a beautiful Michael Powell Luxury Giant Chart 'Pot of Flowers' it is coming along beautifully and I am hoping to get the remaining threads that I am missing and finish this gorgeous design before the summer.
'Pot of Flowers' by Michael Powell

I also compiled most of the required threads for yet another Michael Powell chart that would match my such beloved bookmark that I have stitched few months ago:

'Greek Village' by Michael Powell

And some other excited cute little kits my sister gave away to me include the absolutely adorable bird designs by Madeleine Floyd and a beautiful flower kit:

Kits by Madeleine Floyd

'The Country Diary of am Edwardian Lady'
She also speared me a really gorgeous chart, which I will need to find the threads for, but pretty excited to start at some point:

'Nature's Beauty'
Till next time....


  1. Gorgeous finishes! and nice progress on Michael Powell ... you will have the threads and complete it in no time!

  2. Just discovered your blog through Lija's - you have some lovely projects on the go! I stitched one of the Michael Powell houses a few years ago, only a small one but it took so long with all the backstitch. I admire your patience in stitching several pieces. You must be a big fan!
