Spellbinder 2014

I discovered this embroidery website about 12 months before I had even considered getting an embroidery machine. Once I had a the embroidery bug I rediscovered San Francisco Stitch Co. 
They have free mystery projects throughout the year. I did their Christmas table runner 2013 and their Valentines Bon Bon 2014.  
This blog is about their 2014 Spellbinder Mystery.

It is an eight week project, starting with a suitcase. Each week, usually a Saturday (Australian time) a free download is made available. It has the design and instruction sheet. It is only free for one week and then the next block becomes available. 
All blocks are for sale after the free period for $1.49.

Week 2 was a palm tree and Week 3 a camel.

Week 4 was a stamp. This is when we found out that we were visiting Egypt. I forgot to add the appliqué fabric so made the block twice. You can see the difference.












Other blocks were:-









I was so happy with the result I decided to purchase the previous two Spellbinder Mysteries. Lucky for me they were on special for $1 each block. BONUS.  Now to London :-)

Happy Sewing.
