Last night I started on a new pattern, A STAR POUCH by the designer LA-D-DA. This pattern I picked from a trunk show at my local needle shop NEEDLE FEVER, INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA. The small antique looking pouch caught my eye immediately. I also thought it would be a quick stitch. The model was stitched on 35 count Straw linen by Weeks Dye Works. Being the person I am & not handling linen well...I chose to do this pattern on a 14 count Aida antique looking cloth. I wasn't too sure about the Aida cloth but the shop owner suggested it. So, I thought looking at the color of the cloth it would look antiquish. And I thought the shop owner knows more than I do...so go for it.
I love this antique looking cloth and hope it will look good when finished.
Along with this pattern is a matching pattern called A PENNY SAVED. It has the same little Star Pouch.
I am including a picture of both patterns which are from the company of LA-D-DA.
HAPPY STITCHING !!
