When we started planning for our month of Hand Sewing we knew we had to ask Alicia from Posie Gets Cozy for help with a project. Alicia’s new book comes out next summer; it incorporate cross-stitch, crewel and floss embroidery in a collection of 30 projects. Our copies of Stitched in Time are already well-loved from use so we’re certainly looking forward to this next book!

You can download your free Queen Anne’s Lace Pillowcase PDF for instructions today. Alicia designed today’s pillowcase project to go with her new Ollalieberry Ice Cream Quilt. The simple pattern uses three stitches (stem stitch, satin stitch & french knot). If you’re new to these stitches we love the Sublime Stitching Now-I-Get-It Stitching Diagrams as an easy-to-follow resource. Enjoy!
