Meet Jemima Flendt!

Jemima Flendt is an Australian designer who designs under the Creative Abundance umbrella. She loves to design and use her talents as a home economics teacher to teach skills to all levels of quilters.

Her most recent pattern is the perfect companion to her other two sayings – perfect to hang in your sewing room!

Wouldn’t they look great in a grouping over your sewing machine?

The new patterns are due to arrive the first of the month. Her two earlier banners are in stock now and would make great holiday gifts!

New Kits from Creative Abundance

I love these new kits by Creative Abundance. Not all quilt shops carry quality linen so the fact that the linen is included in the pattern AND pre-printed is a huge plus. And, framed items are made to fit a standard embroidery hoop so they can be stitched and hung in the same day! Check out these new offerings:

The time for me notebook cover is fully lined and designed to fit an A5 notebook/ journal. This pattern includes full color instructions and the stitchery design pre-printed on white linen.

Time For Me Notebook Cover

Sometimes in this busy world we can forget the ‘little things’ and we need a little reminder. This pattern comes with six designs digitally printed on white linen. The finished embroideries can be made into a 12” Flower Hoop as pictured. Full instructions to complete this are included in the pattern with a copy of the full size designs so that you can trace and re-stitch onto your own fabrics. The pattern also includes a stitching guide for all six designs.

Remember the Little Things

This fun project incorporates a little English Paper Piecing and hand embroidery. The embroidery features a range of pretty flowers that utilizes a simple combination of beginner friendly stitches, making this project achievable for all skill levels. The pattern is presented in a full color A5 booklet and contains all the instructions, including beginner friendly English Paper Piecing tips, a stitch guide for both projects, an explanation of all the embroidery stitches used and full sized template sheets. Pattern includes digitally printed designs on white linen. The pin cushion is so cute!

Sophie's Garden

Inspired by vintage tea sets and sweet floral posies, the Tea Time Posy Stitchery uses only four stitch types; back stitch, satin stitch, lazy daisy and French knots. It’s so quick and easy to stitch, so it’s perfect for beginners. Includes Pre-printed design on pale pink linen & Full color instruction booklet.

New from Creative Abundance

These kits all come with pre-printed linen so you can start stitching as soon as you find your floss! They all are designed to work with readily available frames, notebooks, and embroidery hoops for that finishing touch. I have enlarged the images so you can see the detail. What a great way to learn how to embroider. Leann’s House is also available in cream.

If you live in a tourist area, these are great hand projects for the beach or road trips! Display next to your floss for instant kitting! These are available next month so place your orders now!

Color Takes Center Stage

What a dramatic statement the right colors can make! The pure tones of these quilts will take center stage in any room – the perfect addition to a minimalist lifestyle.

Even though most of these quilts are made with solids, In-2-Stars shows how dynamic they all would be in Kaffe fabrics.
