  • Week two of #fqsquiltylove and I’m still on track, yay! 
It’s the perfect piece to sit with and stitch in the evening, so I’m doing a little each night.

Tutorial 1 🌼 Flower design 🌼(one variation)

Tip - Before starting, have a look at the tip picture showing the reverse side of the pattern. You don't need to cast off at the end of each row (unless you are running out of thread), instead you can leave a turn loop and continue on with the next row.

You will need a piece of fabric at least 15-20cm square (6-8 inches) or more if you wish. This size will allow you to make a coaster (aka mug rug), pin cushion or small purse/pouch.

1. Draw up your 0.5 cm or 1/4 inch grid. If you have dot stencilled grid fabric you may not need to draw lines however, you can draw lines to assist with stitch placement if you wish, as pictured. Thread your needle with 40-50cm of thread or longer if you prefer and make a knot in one end (we use about approximately 95cm). 2. Stitch evenly spaced horizontal rows in a 2 stitch pattern, as pictured. If using pre-stencilled dot fabric, skip one dot as you stitch across.

3. Working vertically, repeat the 2 stitch pattern so that they intersect with the horizontal stitches, as pictured. This will form a 'plus' sign pattern.

4. i) Working diagonally from right to left and bottom to top, continue to stitch the 2 stitch pattern so they intersect with the 'plus sign', as pictured. For the final diagonal row you can either flip your work and repeat step 4 i) OR just work from left to right and bottom to top, as in the last picture (4 ii). Happy stitching 😊🧵, let us know if you have any questions?

  • I'm absolutely over the moon with my new thread storage solution! The #tinyboxypouch pattern by @michaelannn is such a cute size and fits everything I want inside. I've still got a fair bit of thread to wind on yet but I will!!
.
I bought a #stitchbook from @kimedith for my birthday and this was my main draw for organising my threads. I have a plan to do more embroidery and learn more stitches and I wanted to use this book to do it in. The trouble is I'm scared to start! It's the blank sketchbook syndrome and being stitches it feels a bit more final than pen and paper!! I need inspiration or advice, what should I do!! I'm tempted to start with swirls of running stitch to get me going and try not to think about the end!! Are there stitch alongs? Is that a thing! Anyone want to collaborate with that!!? Anyway I digress! I'm sure I'll get there in the end!  Bonus points for spotting my #fussycuttingsewalong block... yes I'm doing tiny blocks.

  • Welcome to the #sashikoSALwithKristaandAmanda. 
Over the next 3 weeks, Amanda and I look forward to sharing our tips & love of sashiko with you & also learning from you. We encourage you all to share your projects to learn from & inspire others, don’t forget to use our hashtag & tag us @amandalovestocreate & @surrur_sunday in your post. We are not experts in sashiko, we just love this #japanesecraft & love to stitch. 
I have been actively doing sashiko for more than a year & Amanda started late last year! We are both experienced sewers & have stitched from an early age. I live in Finland & Amanda lives in Australia, so both major time zones are covered as we all stitch together at any time that suits! You can stitch during the day or evening but just remember to share what you are working on throughout the #stitchalong. 
We have selected 2 projects each to share with you, these are: *Amanda (Left, top & bottom) 1. Stencilled Leaf Design using variegated thread colour 77 both from @bebebold & bright yellow, 2. Stencilled "Shippo tsunagi" pattern panel (translated - 'linked 7 treasures') using bright orange thread. *Krista (Right, top & bottom) 1. Orange pouch is “Nowaki” design (translated - ‘grasses’) using a template (templates covered week 3) & double thread. 2. Using dot grid fabric from @almandiini this design is from a Japanese book by @ayakoiru using variegated thread.

There is still time to gather your supplies, remember this is a relaxing stitch along. Preparation this week - during the week we will post 2 tutorials of 2 different simple designs. The first tutorial will be posted tomorrow. For both tutorials you will need a piece of fabric either dot grid or plain (not too big). If you have plain fabric the tutorial has instruction for drawing up your grid. 
If you already have a stencilled pattern panel …start stitching! Keep your stitches as even as you can following pattern lines. *Tip – watch your tension as you stitch, as sometimes the thread maybe loose underneath or become tight. Just remember to start with a knot & use as long a piece of thread as you are comfortable with (this reduces too many cast on/off). Happy stitching everyone!
