Stitcher's Heirloom Sampler Progress


I'm working on new window seat cushion for the big bay window in Katie's room and that and the endless gardening has been eating a lot of my stitching time. I did manage to stitch a little though and completed the first scene in the Stitcher's Heirloom Sampler by Victoria Sampler.

I'm hoping to share pictures of the window seat cushion in the next few days. :) I'm going to make coordinating pillows and am trying to decide whether to take a crack at doing piping around them, or to just glue on some cording when I'm done like a lazy dope. We'll see what wins out. I also received Sophia's Mirabilia RR today - which is a pixie-themed design. So I'll be working on that shortly too. :)

Ohh you have your first Mirabilia RR. I am going to have to wait a while for mine I think. I look forward to seeing what you will stitch.

Really really pretty.

All I know about piping is get a piping foot. If you have that it's supposed to be fairly easy. Good luck!

Stitchers Heirloom is looking great. I love the cupboard that the previous owners left behind.

Great progress on Stitcher's Heirloom, Jenny.

I can't wait to see Katie's window seat! Did you know that you can buy cording that you can machine stitch in? I've never attempted to make piping, but I've made pillows with corded edges, and it's pretty easy to do.
