Balloons Aloft

It's been a slow kind of machine sewing month for me. Conversely Duncan and I have been enjoying doing some hand embroidery using Aneela Hooey's 'Little Stitches' patterns.

Duncan finished his Gingerbread men. I have made it into a little project that will be revealed early next month in the Sew Seasonal Blog Hop to be run by Blossom Heart Quilts and Quiet Play.

I have yet to make my snow globe into something similar but I have started on a new design.  For this I am learning to use a long satin stitch and also a couching stitch.
