Mrs Waddelow

Ellen Chester of "With My Needle" designed this delightful "Huswif" and here is my interpretation of it. I used 30ct R & R Reproduction linen and Weeks Dye Works thread - Bordeaux. The fabrics came from a local quilt shop.
Diana sewed it together for me and did a beautiful job.
I sent these pictures to Ellen and she posted them on her blog... check it out
Makes me feel famous!!!

Lucie came by the shop on Thursday with two selections of fat quarters one in dark greens, oranges and yellows and one in dark blues, and purples... she is going to have a gorgeous "Huswif" regardless of which colourway she goes with. I will post pictures of the stitch-along as we go. I have a feeling that we will produce some incredible "huswifs" ? "huswives"?

Beautiful finish - Diana did a great job and I am sure the stitching is perfect. I will add this to my things to do.

Wow gorgeous job Ann! Is Diana the one who does all your finishing? Because I'm looking for someone to put Todd's stocking together for me. For some strange reason this one stumpped my Mum.

How much fun to see your wonderful completed huswif.

I'm looking forward to seeing photos of your needleworkers' huswifs also.

Diana certainly did a lovely job on your finish Ann. Beautiful stitching too! I love the fabric you chose to finish it with.
