Here is my latest finish...just a plain hand towel with the pattern from The Sunflower Seed called Lil' Christmas. I adjusted the height of the letters to fit within the stitching area of the towel. No buttons will be added because I want the recipient to be able to use the towel.
This was a quick stitch by SamSarah Design Studio. I've got to look through my stash to see if I have a star button. I will probably finish this as an item on a scrapbook page with some other patriotic pieces I have laying around.
Here's Country Cottage Needleworks ~ January Cottage of the Month! What a cute little series this is going to be. I added DMC pearl metallic to the white of the snow and changed the JANUARY to a darker turquoise.
I've ordered the frame from my on-line LNS (123Stitch) and will change the stitching out monthly once the series is complete.
Hot off the needle! Just finished this and what fun I had! Between the dog stealing my chart and ocassionally my fabric....it was all worth it! I think I am going to do a flat easel for the finishing on this one!
Lizzie*Kate's Dog Lovers ~ #051. THIS CHART IS NOT FOR SALE AS THE DOG GOT AHOLD OF IT!
I just LOVE this little series by Little House Needleworks. I finished this over the holidays and as with the Season of Growth, I will finish this into a cute little pillow to display during the appropriate months of the year.
Sorry I'm a little late in wishing everyone a Happy New Year...but like they say, Better Late Than Never At All!
I did quite a bit of stitching over the holidays and since my last post in October...but as things go, no pictures were taken, I can't and won't re-stitch them just for a picture, so I will just move on!
Here is a quite, quick stitch that I have to share with you! It's by Sam Sarah Designs called America. I have the full-sized leaflet for sale...but please note the less than perfect conditions noted in the FOR SALE area.
Married 23 years, mother of two children ages 23 (son) and 21 (daughter), step mother of eight. Twelve grandchildren, two great-grandchildren. Love to cross stitch, read and work in the yard. Work full time for a major grocery store chain.
There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living." -- Unknown
