Raw Edge Applique Garland
We've finally had a little bit of sun here in the North East of England today, so I decided to take a break from egg cosies and instead stitch a cheery length of bunting in some lovely Spring colours. Unfortunately I still can't get outside to take some photos as it's now very blustery, but at least the wind has blown away the fog!
There is a bit of a heart theme going on in the bunting, both as the o of 'Home', and adorning the front of the cute little houses.
The garland features one of my favourite techniques, raw edge applique. This time though I used a little bit of blanket stitch, rather than a regular straight stitch, which makes a nice change.
Not surprisingly though, I couldn't resist sneaking in just a little bit of freestyle machine embroidery, so I dropped the feed dogs and quickly whizzed around the door, roof and windows!
It's now back to finishing the last of my Easter egg cosies!
