Check this out! I FINALLY finished the Travelling Stitcher. If you can see in the picture it has been stitched since 2009. ( I am a little embarrassed to say that.) But alas, it is finished and some things are worth the wait. I love it. I put some buttons on the corners to hide some imperfections.
I also finally finished another LHN ornament called Winter. I love this one too and can’t wait to finish with the fabric shown. it is going to look great.
That’s it for today so I can get some stitching done. I have so many projects going, the problem is I can’t stitch them fast enough to show on here.(sigh!!)
To all the mothers out there I hope you have a very Happy Mother’s Day and here’s hoping we get pampered all day long. I know, I’m dreaming! I least expect to stitch without interruptions.
I thought I would show some prettiness today. I love flowers. Don’t you? I cut some lilacs today from my backyard and filled this vase. The house smells wonderful! I just love it! I also took this picture of my front garden with my Rhoadies. ( not sure how to spell that.LOL!) Anyway, you probably can figure out what they are by the picture. I took a close up of one so you can see the pretty primroses to the right of it. I love those as well. I have the 2 purple ones and the one in the middle is white. For some reason that blossoms when the others are done. Go figure! At least I have color in the front for a little while.
That’s it for today, I will probably be back Thursday to show some stitching I have finished.
Have a glorious day!!
Such a wonderful spring day! It is finally a decent temperature to call it spring.
I recently was playing around with a design and this is what it ended up to be. A spring crossword. i used words that reminded me of spring. Stitched a few things and added a few buttons. I am happy with the end result. The pink fabric is what I used for the back and green rick rack for the trim. I think it turned out pretty well. I would like to hear what all of you think! I hope to do other seasons as well. Not sure I’ll get to summer though because my list is huge right now. We’ll see!
next was a little surpirise from my momma!! Isn’t it so cute! It is With Thy Needle, I think the summer one. Floss keeper, needle case and beeswax. Love it! Thanks Mom! She bought one for her and one for me. Isn’t that great!
Sorry short post today but I will be back later with more. I have a few things close to being done.
Ta Ta for now and enjoy the nice weather!
I am back from vacation, refreshed and ready to get stitching. Still waiting for the weather to get warm and STAY warm. How about you?
I finally have a few things to share. I finished 2 more of Marly’s pears. Now I have 3 all together so I now need to get them finished so I can enjoy them. I hope to do all of them because I just think they are adorable. The next picture shows my 2 bunnies. The one on the right was a recent freebie from Primitive Bettys. Isn’t it cute! I did it on aida which I don’t normally do anymore but when I am travelling in the car I have found linen to be too difficult and I make too many mistakes. I MUST stitch in the car so I guess I am forced to work on aida when travelling. Oh well!
The last picture is a design I did for the coffee lover in my house. No, it is not me. No matter how many times I try coffee for some reason I just can’t stand the taste of it. Not even flavored coffee can I drink. I have to drink diet coke to get my caffeine intake. When people say “That’s not good for you.” I have to say what is really good for you these days. Not much!!!
Anyway, this tiny little pillow is in a basket in my kitchen and is adoreable.
I am thinking of learning another craft. In addition to stitching of course because that I could never give up. But what am I thinking! How am I going to find time to do another craft? Maybe I’ll have to quit my job to have more time. LOL!
When I get started I will share it on here. I have to get supplies first. In the meantime I will kepp stitching!!!
Hope it is getting warmer where ever you are!!
I made it back to post just like I said I would. Miracles do happen! Just wanted to show you real quick my 3 ornaments for this year so far. I am right on track. Maybe even a little ahead of schedule since I have March done and it is only March 14. Yeah me!! Believe is from Daffycat, the cardinal is from Myra (Gr8Dame’s place) Thanks Myra! It was a great stitch! The dove is from me but is not completed yet. I am thinking some beads to add a little bling to it. I can’t wait to finish them.
The next photo is my first pear from Samplers and Santas. My second one is almost complete and a third one is packed for vacation. I just love these and can’t wait to finish all of them. They are all listed on the Samplers and Santas blog so go check them out.
That’s it for today. I am taking care of my sick husband today so please pray that no one else in the house comes down with it. I don’t have time to be sick.:)
Happy Stitching All!
Hope everyone is well! I finally have a few things to show. First is this cute bird. I absolutely adore it! it was a freebie from the little stitcher and such a quick stitch. It just took me a little longer to finish. Once I finished though I fell in love with it. he is so cute and looks great in my cubbie. Once I fill my cubbie I will show you all a picture. If you love freebies which I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t go over to the little stitcher and check them out.
The next 2 patterns I made myself. Titanic I did because my daughter has been reading alot about the Titanic. It has been fasinating her and it has always fasinated me that a ship that big could sink. So to honor the ship of dreams I stitched this small up. 101 years ago this year which sounds really weird to say that. It almost seems impossible that it was that long ago.
I have been on a kick lately remembering years past and remembering things that I grew up with that I miss. Forinstance this next pattern I did is to remember one of the greatest actresses of our time. She is Lucille Ball. I adored her. She was the funniest lady I have ever watched. I put the year she was born and died. I picked a butterfly because I read that when she was on screen she always had a butterfly on. It could be a clip in her hair or on her clothes or on her purse. There was always a butterfly somewhere on her which I thought was interesting. It makes me want to watch I Love Lucy to check it out. Her favorite colors were grey and yellow. my daughter attended a birthday party a few years back. I think they were about 7 and her little friend had an I Love Lucy party. They watched the chocolate episode which is one of my favorites. Hysterical!!! The party favors were little tins of that very episode with choclates inside. So cute! I think it’s great that she is still so popular today even with kids that young. I’d rather they watch that then what’s on TV for kids today.
Anyway, sorry if I bored anyone and hopefully your still reading. The last one I have are a few easter things. The 2 chicks I did arefrom The Sampler Girl. A freebie of course but they are supposed to be one piece. I decided to do them separate and I only did 2 of them instead of 3. The little egg in the middle I did. I don’t like how it turned out so that is a work in progress. I have to work on sewing odd shapes.:)
I have a few things stitched which I realized haven’t shown. I may do that Thursday if I have time because it may be a while before I finish them. I know what your thinking… I said that last time that I would be back Thursday and I wasn’t. So Sorry!!! that’s why i threw in the if I have time. You never know!!
Happy Spring Stitching!!!
