The past two weeks have been CRAZY at our house..we hosted Easter dinner for my family (15 people, I think?) This week we have relatives coming from British Columbia; they will be staying with us for five days. I'm very grateful for this time with family.
So, what have I been stitching lately? Let's start with the ornament that I stitched for Julianne on the Christmas ornament swap; April was her month to receive. She indicated that she loved Christmas greens and reds and that made me think of this ornament -- it's from the 2002 JCS Ornament Magazine and it's a design from Nordic Needle. I finished it off as a small stuffed pillow with beads around the edge and some personalization on the back. Cute, yes?
Next up are two sweet fobs that I stitched to coordinate with the Gingher Sarah scissors that came out last year. The design is a freebie from Debbie Draper called "Love" which can be found here. I chose thread colors which coordinated with the colors of the scissors -- the lighter middle is CC Persimmon, the darker middle is WDW Grenadine , the blue is ST Morning Glory, the green is ST Spring Grass. I stitched them on some 28ct white linen and finished them as tiny biscornus. What do you think?
Here's my current WIP. I would have never purchased this pattern based on the picture but I saw the model when Mama Joan and I went to Madison and fell in love with it. Wanna guess which design this is? I'll give you a clue, we went to Madison for a class with Lori from La D Da....
That's all I got! Hope you have all been well. I'm going to try to pop into some blogs now and see what I've been missing. Have a nice weekend!
