June Morning and Inspirations magazine

The Goode Huswif
June Morning
24 ct black Congress cloth
DMC threads

Here is the latest on this CJC project.  Love the bright colors on the black.

Are you familiar with Inspirations magazine from Australia?  This is issue #65 and I finally got my hot little hands on it.  It is a little on the expensive side but this issue has a Betsy Morgan etui with some smalls in it. It is right there on the cover.  The 32 ct Belfast natural linen is on the right in the pic and I am waiting on the Gloriana threads to get here.

I also have kitted about a dozen more projects--wishful thinking right now :)

I am struggling with the new blogger dashboard.  It won't let me upload anymore photos, so I'll just tell you that I finished the alphabet sampler that finishes up BBD Peacock Pinkeep.

 I'll go to picasa and delete a bunch of old photos on my blog.  Hopefully that will take care of this :(

Oh my, June Morning is wonderful! I really need to continue mine, now that there's more daylight... Lovely progress! And the Etui is beautiful, and looks like a fun project - enjoy!

Great progress on June Morning! I just love the colors popping off the black fabric!

Deb said...

It always seems like there are problems with Blogger, doesn't it? I hope that you can post the pictures soon.

I just love your June Morning. The colors are so pretty against that black fabric. And I think that I'm going to have to pick up that magazine! I love that set!

The stitching is beautiful.:)
I do not know the magazine...:(

What a beautiful project you can make from the magazine! I love the bright colors on black of June Morning, too!

I've periodically had problems loading pics as well, Theresa. It's frustrating, but I haven't found a solution that works consistently. Good luck.

You know it's funny how much we share in terms of taste in projects? I had to get that Inspirations Magazine too for the Betsy Morgan pieces. lol! And I'd love to get around to stitching June Morning someday too! Yours is looking great!

Great progress on June Morning. I love the colors on the black, but I can't see to work on it.

Wonderful process - I love the colours!
It's pretty hard to find Inspirations magazine here in ordinary kiosks, so lucky you :)


Chris said...

The GH piece is lovely, those colors really pop on the black.
I can;t wait to see what all those new projects are :)

I love that June Morning!! Every year I say I'm going to stitch it but have yet to do it.

I have that Inspirations issue--LOVE it! Australians have such great magazines!

Ugh on the blogger problems--hope they are sorted soon!

Carol said...

I just love things stitched on black and this looks great, Teresa!

I haven't had problems with Blogger, but I've been reading that many others are, too--hope you can figure things out.

Enjoy your weekend!

June Morning is just beautiful on the black fabric! The etui is going to be pretty. Can't wait to see your stitching.
Blogger can make you want to rip your hair out - hope you can resolve the problem.

Teresa, I bought that issue when it was on the newsstand in my local bookstore. It is on my list of things to get to one day. I'm sure we will see yours finished first.

Myra said...

Oh I am loving those colors with the black background too.
