Harry Potter gift stitching, stash and Tilda

Hi everyone, I wish I could say that the beautiful cross stitch in this photo was a finished piece of mine but it isn't, however, I have recently purchased the pattern and I love it!
I must admit whenever I read the verse it makes me so sad, I nearly did not buy it because of the words but I loved it so much it simply had to come home to me, but I try not to look at the verse as it makes me cry and I concentrate on the surrounding beauty of the piece itself.

Three Things Sampler - Pattern by Moira Blackburn.

Stitching news and stash.

I have been doing some stitching on a cute Harry Potter gift for someone, they don't read my blog so I know I am safe to show it here, it is a freebie cross stitch pattern that I found on Pinterest, I tried to put a link to the blog but I could not find the pattern,  but just type Harry Potter cross stitch on Pinterest and you will find it. Isn't he cute? Lol.....

I am thinking of making this into a project bag, I have a couple of ideas but need to play around with some fabrics.

Here are my latest fabric purchases, I am going to be playing around making some fun project bags

I ordered this lovely Tilda fabric with the intention of making project bags for my Etsy shop but I ordered some teal coloured fabric to compliment the patterned fabric but it did not arrive because it was sold out. I was a little disappointed as it threw my plans a little, these fabrics may now go into my shop.
The buttons and ribbons will be listed soon.

I am pleased to announce that I am a supplier for the new Tilda Circus fabrics due out in April, I have set up some pre- order listings in my Etsy shop this week, the photos below show how gorgeous it is!

If you want to see how really pretty this fabric actually is then pop over to
Jenny of Elephantz as she has made a gorgeous pillow from the Circus fabrics

Until next time, happy stitching!

Well done you for being a supplier to Tilda fabrics they will make stunning projects, I think you are going to be pretty busy.
Have fun stitching.

Beautiful sampler - samplers are always so classic and never go out of style. Love the Tilda fabric and Harry Potter - who does not love Harry! My grandson loves anything Harry Potter. Last Halloween he asked me to crochet a Harry Potter scarf for his costume - it was a fun and easy request.

Oooh, what a lovely sampler. That will keep you busy for a while!
I love your HP! I might have to look for him, he really is cute.
All your fabric looks so pretty, fun for bags!

Your new fabrics are simply gorgeous! Good luck with the shop, I'm sure your bags will be a huge success!
Could you rechart the sampler verse to something you prefer? It's only a small part of the design and it seems a pity to spoil it if you find the verse sad. I keep thinking of the verse To everything there is a season.... for some reason but I'm sure you could think of something that suits you better.

I recently acquired the same sampler! It's beautiful but does not make me sad at all. I think it's a reminder that some things you just can't take back. I'm looking at it as a proactive statement rather than a realization that someone messed up. I love how two people can read the same few words and get a different message from them!

All your fabric looks so pretty!

Wow! To be surrounded by all of those lovely fabrics must be wonderful, Lynn!! My idea of heaven :)

Lovely sampler--I look forward to seeing it grow. And such a cute Harry Potter piece--you're going to make someone very happy!

Enjoy your weekend, Lynn! And happy first day of spring to you on Monday!

Thanks Kay.
