As well as the ongoing project for Unlimited Textiles for themed quilties, there is also a monthly swap of other projects. This month's was bookmarks. This is my first one which I named 'Fleur'. I made this for Laura and I will soon be adding the next one which I will make for Alison.

Quiltie swap.

These are my quilties to swap with Jan and Alis. They were for April but I got a bit behind! Our theme was India. I used sari material for the background and used decorated ribbons for the elephant's trappings and edge. On the other I used mainly sari fabric and couched down indian sari wool and shisha mirrors.

Stitch of the month!

As I am new to textiles Jan thought it would be a good idea to practice my hand stitching. Our group has to produce a creative piece each month using a chosen stitch. This month's was Cretan stitch, and this is my first ever attempt at the stitch!
