What Are You Stitching?
25th August 2023
Trish Burr’s designs have become somewhat of a ‘regular’ to the ‘What Are You Stitching?’ segment, once again proving how much we all love her wonderful projects. Luckily her latest book will provide even more designs to continue to spread the Burr magic! For now, here is some more fan mail for you to enjoy.
‘I thought it was time to share what I’ve been completing this year. My project holder was getting rather full of unfinished projects.’
‘These two cute birds and the poppy are embroidery designs by Trish Burr, which I’ve had made into gift cards by a dear friend who loves card making. I’ve also made ‘The Charleston Lady’ by Trish Burr into a gift card.’
‘I’ve now one more quilt left in my project holder. The goal… get it done before the end of year… I’ve many more waiting to be started!’
So many pleasurable hours stitching Trish’s designs, Ann! They are beautiful cards that frame your magnificent stitches. Lovely keepsakes for whoever has the pleasure of receiving them.
‘My daughters kindly gave me the kit for my birthday, and I now have it hanging on the wall along with the Queen.’
A thoughtful gift from your daughters, MaryAnn! You’ve stitched them both beautifully and we love that you have them hanging side by side.
‘During the pandemic, I spent a lot of time stitching a book Trish Burr released free of charge. It was such a good idea and I spent most of the lockdown learning to needle stitch.’
‘I collected all the pages and backed each one up and inserted a stiffener and then I put the book together. I am really pleased with the outcome, but the pages do not lie flat.
I have found a bookbinder to try, and I am so excited that I might be able to create a legacy book collection!’
What a beautiful and impressive finish, and great to hear you have found a solution for your construction dilemma! It sounds like the experience has sparked a new passion for you and we look forward to seeing your book collection one day. Thank you for sharing your stitching journey with us, Carol.
