Patchwork Cushion Covers

I am so sorry for being for not posting regularly. I have been trying to do too many things I guess:-)With lot of cooking at Veg junction, Tast, and now being a part of a quilting guild is taking a lot of time and I am not able to finish any project in the stipulated time.That is the reason I joined OPAM 2012, I needed a push as usual. It means, you need to finish one project a month and is definitely doable.
Did I mention that I got featured on Sharaon blog for my pin cushion.You can see it HERE
So my finish for the month of February is a set of patch work cushion covers...yes!!I have started sewing again!!
Here I have used The method of Disappearing nine patch and chose to use vibrant colours to match the wall decor
For the backing I have used plain red crinkled cotton
I loved these vibrant coloured cushions.Did you???
Linking these cushions to OPAM 2012

Beaded Chevron Stitch

Missed out 2 weeks of TAST 2012 but am back with Chevron!!Since I wanted to stitch a kurti/tunic for my daughter, I decided to embellish it with beads using Chevron Stitch which is the stitch of the week by Sharaon for TAST 2012.
You can see the instructions of chevron here on pintangle. I will be posting the tute for beaded chevron a little later.
Here in this tunic i have embellished it with thin long white beads and since the fabric already had perfect parallel lines, it was pretty easy to do the embroidery.
Did you like it?
I loved it and so did my daughter!!!!!
Enjoy the pics !!!!!!!!!

Have I inspired you to take the needle and thread and to try the stitch out???????
Lining this to OPAM 2012
Have fun
Happy stitching!!

I missed out doing the second week of TAST 2012 by Sharon...I was basking in the glory of being featured on her blog with nine others for my Fly stitch sample..that i missed out completing the second stitch. So now I am back with the stitch of this week -Feather stitch. You can see sharon's tutorial here.My earlier versions can be seen here
I have tried to use this stitch in a closed stacked manner to form a mesh like feel and accentuating with sequins and beads.
This stitch is used in one part of the design of a cushion cover,

The above feather stitch is worked on a piece of fabric which will be a part of a bag!!!Love the vibrant colours!!!!1
