Gifties

Hi all,

I just wanted to show the precious Mother’s day gifts I received from my precious daughter.

002

The little dish I am going to use for small stitchy things. Isn’t is so cute! I framed the paper which I am going to hang in my stitching room so I can admire it everyday. It says “10 reasons I love my Mom” and it is all typed and decorated. She did such a great job. Handmade gifts are my favorite!

I finished stitching A Walk in the Park by LHN for my sister. She had to put her little yorkie, Ally, down a few months ago. So I stitched this for her in memory of Ally:

004

I gave it to her on Mother’s Day and told her it was an “I Love You” gift. She started tearing before she even opened it. She requested I frame it so that is next on my to do list. I am glad I could make her day and she will always have Ally in her heart.

Have a great day everyone!

New Design and Some Finishes

Hello all,

Just wanted to share my newest  design just listed in my etsy shop called USA:

006

I finished it as a pincushion but it could be whatever you want it to be. Imagination is a wonderful thing! I also listed some small rick rack trim. My shop is at http://www.etsy.com/stitchorizeit/shop if you would like to take a look.

I have a couple of random finishes as well today:

001

This ornament was the third one in the freebies from Niky’s Creations from my last ornament post. I love this design!

003

This Easter design I had started last year and finished it this year although still not in time for Easter. At least it is ready for next year. it is from on of those cross stitch doodles. It just has the pattern and then you pick the fabric and colors. I think it turned out pretty cute.

That’s all for today ladies! Hope everyone has a great weekend and Happy Mother’s Day to all you Mothers out there.

More Ornaments

Hello,

I bet your saying “Does she post anything besides ornaments?” The answer is yes but it depends what I get done first. Anyway, I finished these 2 ornaments and I just had to show you all. These are from Niky’s Creations:

008009

They are freebies from the Candy Cane Stitchers facebook group. If you are not a member I would head over and join. You won’t be disappointed. There is one more that I have not finished yet so I will be showing that at a later date. So I stitched these on dyed fabric and finished them in hoops. I also dyed the rick rack which I put in the hoop, a bow at the top and also used it for the hanger. I really like how they turned out.

I received my first kit in the mail for the Dwelling Place:

006

Cannot wait to get this started! I just have a few things to finish up first.

That’s it for today. I am off to do a little finishing so hopefully I will have more to show next week. I will be back Thursday to show a new pattern for Mother’s Day.

Have a great day everyone!

001

I have been experimenting with staining my own fabric and the last few came out like this. I really like how these came out. What do you think? Hmmm! What do I want to stitch on them? I think I am going to try bigger pieces of linen next time just the way I did these.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Spring Finishes

Hello,

Spring is in the air! I also did see a robin yesterday so I know it’s true. I have a few spring finishes to share with you today.

First, is this spring freebie by Snowflower Diaries:

001

This was a freebie from a couple of years ago. I finished it into a small pillow for my collection. I love the little chick in this design. So sweet!

My next finish is by Prim Stitchin:

002

I purchased this pattern from her Etsy shop because I loved the little bunny. I have a thing for bunnies lately. They are just so cute! It stitched up pretty quickly and also finished this as a small pillow. That’s a surprise! I will definitely be buying more patterns from Prim Stitchin.

I am still waiting for it to warm up as I am sure others are too. I know now that I can see the grass that warmer weather is on the horizon. Hang in there!!!

Off to stitch the cold away!

Have a great weekend!

Ornaments and New Spring Designs

Hello Everyone,

Yes, even though spring is almost here I am still making ornaments. I am addicted to making ornaments!

First is this sweet little angel freebie by Niky’s Creations:

002

I wanted to keep it simple so I just made this into a pillow ornament. Isn’t she cute and she will make a nice  addition to my tree next Christmas.

My other ornament today is a Lizzie Kate Jingle called Love:

003

I LOVE this little design and I can’t wait to hang it on my tree this year. I used a Vonna finish on this one and I love it. Thanks for such wonderful tutorials Vonna!

I am doing some spring stitching as well. I designed these 2 bunnies:

bunny #2

Oops! The picture is a little blurry. Sorry about that. This sweet little bunny is eating the flowers. I made him into an ornament and he makes a nice addition to my spring tree.

bunny #1

This cute little bunny I made into a small sewing box. The box is a 3 x 3 box I found at Hobby Lobby. I painted and aged it some time ago when I was experimenting so I thought it would fit nicely on there. I used chenille to trim the top and put some purple fabric in the bottom of the box.

I really like how they turned out and I hope you like them too. The patterns will be available for purchase in my etsy shop later this week.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week full of stitching!

Something New and a Question

Hello all,

I am working on a few finishes which unfortunately are not ready for today. Sorry! I did however want to show you my wine tags that I just listed in my etsy shop.

001003

I stitched and finished these to fit over a wine bottle. So when someone gives a gift of wine a little something fun can be added to it. I am going to make some holiday ones too. If  you want to take a look the link is http://www.etsy.com/shop/stitchorizeit.

I also wanted to ask you all a question and ask for feedback. When you buy a pattern book, what do you like to see in it? I am thinking of doing one and wanted to get ideas on what to put in it. Do you like stories, tutorials, etc. Thanks for your help!

Have a great weekend!

Winter, Winter, Winter

Hello Stitching friends,

It’s been great stitching weather the last few days. It’s beyond cold here! What’s it like where you are?

002

Well, I designed this little Let it Snow  ornament before it started snowing. Now that we are buried in it. I want it to stop! Oh well, soon is what I keep telling myself. I do like my ornament though. I mounted it on my dollar store snowflake ornaments. Love these! I’ll be offering this pattern at the end of the year.

Onto a winter freebie! It’s a great time of year for it and it finishes the seasons I already did which are on my freebies page. I had a few requests to do winter so I am happy to comply.

So here is winter:

001

It is a quick stitch and I finished it as a small pillow. ( You all know how I love my smalls) Please send me an email if you would like a copy of Winter. I will get it sent out to you as soon as I can. I hope you enjoy it. As always, please refer others to my blog for their own legal copy and I would love to see how you finish it so send me an email.

Have a great week everyone and thank you for your comments. I really appreciate each and every one.
