Gill's been busy--Acorn Sampler Sewing Case, Quaker Needlework Treasures, Bunnies in the Garden, Quaker needlebook

I have had so much fun this week hearing from stitchers from France, Japan, and now Australia.

Today's photos are from Gill Aldus. Gill is another beautiful stitcher and finisher.

The first two photos are of her Acorn Sampler Sewing Case. Gill wrote that this is her favorite of the projects. She added, "I had a blast putting it together and I show it off to everyone who visits! ;-) "
To see what the sewing case looks like on the inside or to see the project framed, look at it on my website.

The next two photos are of Gill's Quaker Needlework Treasures. Don't you love the gorgeous fabric she chose for her bag and the wonderful leaves on the ends of her cording?

Gill wrote, "The bag and needlebook was a present for a friend who loves Autumn which is what prompted the fabric choice; the needlebook is lined with the same fabric. She loved it!"
Next is Gill's Bunnies in the Garden sewing case, folded up and ready to be tucked in a bag to be taken somewhere. And last, but not least, is Gill's Quaker needlebook. I designed this for the Just CrossStitch magazine's Christmas ornament series. Thanks, Gill, for sharing photos of your lovely work all the way from Australia!

Please continue to leave your comments in the comment section under each blog post or in the guest book. If you’d like to send pictures, just email me. I love hearing from you!

How interesting to see both Gill's and Chi's two totally different versions of Quaker Needlework Treasures. Both so lovely.

Gill's Acorn sewing case is just beautiful. Mine is finished and just awaiting assembly, I wonder if I will have time to start it this weekend - don't hold your breath.
