It's taken a while but it's finally here. Introducing the 'Sweet Liberty' wall hanging quilt pattern.
This simple yet effective stitchery quilt uses only three skeins of thread, Waratah stranded and Perle 12 as well as Cloudy Day stranded. The stitcheries use only back stitch and stem stitch so great for any skill level.
We are very excited to announce the debut of the first Cottage Garden Threads stitchery pattern.
The Stitching Girl Needle Book and Scissor Keep was designed by yours truly aka Katie.
This pattern features threads, ric rac and cotton daisy felt.
I was inspired by vintage cardboard needle books.
The pattern includes comprehensive instructions and full size patterns. Thread and trim kits along with patterns will be available for wholesale purchase next week or pre order as of now. If you would like to purchase them, ask your local cottage garden threads stockist to order one in for you or contact us and we can hook you up with your nearest retailer.
It has become a weekly ritual of mine to make a hot chocolate with marshmellows, snuggle into the couch with a blanket, some stitching and watch the new series Downton Abbey. I am in love with the costumes and settings, the gardens and of course, the drama! I've loved Period drama's since I can remember but was always a closet watcher because it wasn't "the cool thing to watch". Well, it looks like I was just ahead of the game! Now I can suggest all sort s of BBC movies and series to my friends who are so late to discover the wonderful world of romantic and sometimes not so romantic past eras.
Just look at the outfits...
My favorite character so far is Sybil and sorry to spoil it for anyone who hasn't caught the latest episode but the scene where she walked out in her self designed, fashion forward harem pants, exposed ankes and no laced stays (gasp) was classic! Someone needed to pick the snotty old grandmothers jaw off the floor. Check out the gorgeous ensemble..
Sweet liberty by me for CGT. I'm a poet and I didn't even know it!
These embroideries are for a quilt that will be released soon. Threads used are Waratah stranded and Perle 12. There are two more panels of birds yet to be stitched. I can't wait to get it all together for our first pattern release.
