Redwork

This was stitched on tea stained fabric.
I love Raggedy Ann, and couldn't pass up on this design. So Cute!
:)
Not sure what I will do with it yet, perhaps frame it, or make a pillow.

Amish piece

This is a small design from Told In A Garden.
This is my newest completed cross stitch.

Someone just pointed out that I had stitched two letter "i"'s in this piece.
How come I didn't see that!
lol
I will have to do some frogging and fix that right away.

I guess it shows that I am only human, and we do make mistakes sometimes :)

Goodwill Find!

I just got in from Goodwill. I could not believe what I found there as I was about to walk out!
This beautiful dish set. It is the most gorgeous set I have ever seen...the design is so "ME"!!
It is not a full complete set, but enough that I just had to purchase it. It was calling my name. :)
I already put some of the dishes on a plate rack on my dining room wall..they look perfect in there!
I am so excited with my find.....
I just LOVE Goodwill sometimes!

My First Completed Quilt Square!

I am so excited! I did it! It may not be perfect, but for a first I think it is pretty good.
I am so happy with the results of the paper piecing I have learned.
I want to make more designs!
Here is my finished quilt square :)


Paper Piecing!

My latest venture is paper piecing!
I picked out 4 fat quarte
rs with purple in them (I just LOVE the color purple!)..
Nancy that I work with at the quilt shop taught me step by step how to paper piece. She is so very talented, and I was so honored to have her show me the ropes. I just love learning new techniques. I am not a quilter YET, but hope to be one day!
I guess you can say I am a "piecer" :)
Thanks for stopping by and seeing my new project!

Whitman's Tin Sewing Box!


I finished stitching and creating my Whitman's Tin Sewing Box!
I am so pleased with the way it came out. :)
I also made the scissor fob that goes with the tin.
I love it so much, and just want to display it!
I used cardboard, warm and natural batting, and also used a piece of light purple Wool for the needles to be placed. I used pinking shears to cut the Wool.
I love the color purple, and really like the purple ribbon I used too.
Now, onto another project! :)

YO YO's!!

I have been busy this week!
I purchased a Clover Yo Yo maker and have learned the technique for making
Yo Yo's! They are quite simple to make, a lot of fun,
and very addicting.
I can't stop making them :) Not sure what I will do with them as of yet..perhaps table runners,
place mats, maybe even a yo yo quilt!
I am almost done stitching my Whitman's Tin sampler box too..look for picture posts coming soon, it is coming out so cute!
updates soon!
