TTMT 85: Stitchy McStitcherson

Leave a comment

In which I show off the last two quilt blocks I made for my Livejournal Birthday Blocks group, as well as two stitching projects I’m working on, an alphabet sampler and a tiny little tulip done in tent stitch.

All my Birthday Blocks blocks for 2012 can be seen here.

The Daisychain ABC Sampler came from Posie Rosy Little Things. (If you’re interested in making your own, you can buy the PDF, the preprinted fabric, and the Appleton Crewel wools to make a kit for yourself or any of the three that you need. The PDF has DMC conversions, if you’d rather stitch with embroidery floss.)

The Tulip kit can be purchased from Thistle Threads for a limited time (basically until they run out of kits, I think), though the pattern can be found for free at any time. A portion of the purchase price is donated to the MET Ratti Center, which is a textile museum (well, I don’t know if they have a museum proper, but they collect, study, and store textiles to preserve them and learn from them). The kit has the most lovely supplies – lovely 34-count linen and Au Ver a Soie’s Soie d’Alger silk threads – and you can buy a finishing kit to turn it into a tiny pillow or pincushion.
