Time sure has been flying by around here - is it just me or is it that way for you as well?
I've done a bit of stitching, sewing & finishing, but not as much as I'd like. Isn't that always the way? Most of it I can share.....
Stealing the idea from Karen (thanks Karen!), I made two mini bottle cap pieces for winter. The designs are little motifs from Lizzie Kate's "Winter Alphabet". I left the sled off the snowman & added more "snow". I still haven't made them into ornnaments OR magnets - still thinking about it. Oh, and they're stitched over 1 on 25 ct..... The bottle caps are 1".
And I also stitched the Little House Joy & Peace on the same fabric over 1. You can see it next to the 1" bottle caps..... I still need to "finish" it as well.
I stitched a Sue Hillis design that I just love! What do you think of my finishing? The ribbon is sort of like a "velvet" that came from Michael's and it's the perfect shade of red and the perfect width to fit the ornament. I didn't use all the colors that Sue charted it for - but I love how it turned out.
And I found these little guys (and gals) at Michael's a month or so ago. As soon as I saw them I knew they'd make darling Christmas pincushions, so I made these for friends. They all have them now, so I can share. :-)
I've also made a bunch of Christmas cards, some of which I've already mailed - I NEED to get the rest of them in the mail - don't you think? Here are some that haven't been sent yet.....
And last but not least is a Shepherds Bush that I finished last Sunday. It's just laying in the Jill Rensel mats - it hasn't been ironed & laced yet. I just wanted to see what it was going to look like. Cute huh?
The last stitch-in of the year at The French Hens was this past Saturday. We had a smaller than usual group but I had a ball. It's great to spend time with stitching friends and we were able to have conversations that included the entire group, which was nice for a change. Thanks to those who came - I really enjoyed the day & hope to see you all again in March! If you're interested in details - email me - email@example.com.
I have lots of other things "in the works". I'll share when I have pics. Thanks for stopping by. Happy stitching & sewing!
