Thanksgiving weekend...

Learning Embroidery

I completed few more new stitches;  threaded backstitch, petal  stitch, leaf stitch, bullion stitch. 
My stitches are still not so neat as I want them to be.

My latest project is leaning embroidery with Crewel Wool.  I drew up small pattern to work on. I do like the texture that the thread gives with the satin stitch.


Autumn Saree Quilt
some progress has been made in quilting as well;  it is quite a long way from being finished though.


Teapot shaped coasters...



...... for your tea anytime of the day !!!

I made these coasters as a part of exchange for a Tea and Card group ,which I joined this summer. Our first holiday was Thanksgiving.

Thank you for stopping by,

till next time,

    And how cute are those coasters? Answer = Very Cute!

  6. Embroidery is one thing I would like to be better at too. Your stitches are looking good! I noticed there are a lot of links for embroidery stitches on Pinterest as well ... another "board" I'll have to create :) Your teapot coasters are adorable, and look so cute all together. Enjoy your day!

  7. what a delight to see all the teapot coasters -- what a fun way you arranged them for the photo.

    I used to do more needlework and I've been hankering to pick up thread and needle again. Your posts inspire me.

    Wishing you a beautifully stitched day...
