Folksy Friday

So I thought it was fitting if today's Folksy Friday was all about stitches! I went to get mine out today and after much prodding and pulling (ouch!) was told that they were nowhere near ready to come out - Boo! Anyway at least I got a theme for Folksy Friday hey?

So here they are - my fave stitched or stitch themed items of the week:

This pretty pretty hand stitched brooch is by Tamsyn G

This lovely heart shaped brooch is attached to a card and doubles as a valentine's card. It's by Petal Textiles

These colourful hand stitched hearts are by Cloudberryskies. I also love her skull brooches but I'm afraid that I rather look like one at the mo with not being able to sleep well recently!

Look at the symmetry of this little beauty! It was embroidered by Applique Originals. Go visit her blog too as there are some beautiful cuffs there that she hasn't listed yet.

And finally for something a bit different. I'm sure BF would agree that I've been somewhat of a stitch bitch at the minute! These lovely badges are by Badge the Badger.

Oh and just a quick note of thanks to the lovely Jo Anglezarke for nominating me for my second Sunshine Blog Award. How lovely!! Now I'm not up to nominating another 12 people, so for those of you who haven't yet seen it, check out my original Sunshine Blog Award post. And please take a look at Jo's Sewing is for Girls blog.

So I hope everyone has a great weekend - I certainly will with the 6 nations starting tomorrow. What on earth is better than muscly men in shorts?? Go Wales!!
