Stitching on this little bunny is done. He's ready for finishing! The spool in the kit is unfinished, so I'll have to take care of that first. Need some paint or stain and sandpaper....not my favorite part of finishing!
I took photos today of some of my older framed pieces. Remember this one?
It's called Hillside School of Handworke and it is from Hillside Samplings.
I dug another bunny piece out of my stash today. I'll share it with you tomorrow!
I've been looking at all the new designs that are coming soon to the Nashville Needlework Market and contemplating the purchases I would like to make. At the same time, I'm feeling a little guilty because I still have purchases from past markets that have yet to be stitched.
So tonight I pulled out one of last year's purchases. Do you recognize it? It's from Milady's Needle. Love that bunny!
Tonight's oldie but goodie is a teenie tiny band sampler that I stitched in 2015. The sampler folds up and fits into the little metal case. This was designed by Jackie du Plessis.
This is the best I can do tonight...an oldie but goodie. This project was all kitted up and available through Elegant Stitch several years ago. I personalized it with my initials and my mom's initials. It's finished as a pincushion.
Looking forward to a stitchy weekend with friends this weekend!
I always seem to underestimate the time needed to finish a piece. I thought that I might be able to finish the stitching on Helix Etui, but I'm going to need a few more days. Great progress made though on the larger piece which will be used to create the Etui.
I visited the Mad Tatter yesterday. In between hockey and basketball games and old and new episodes of Blue Bloods, she has been tatting like crazy. She is hooked on creating "Ice Drops". The tatting is done around a small round gemstone. These will make nice ornaments or sun catchers; I even think it would make a nice scissor fob!
Tonight I would like to share a more recent finish; I believe that I finished the stitching on this piece last year. I took it in to Stitchville recently and ordered up a frame. Deb does such a nice job framing and she is an expert at picking out the perfect frame!
Sorry for the glare; I didn't take the plastic off of it. I'm not sure where I am going to hang it yet and wanted to keep it wrapped up. The design is from Plum Street Samplers and it is called 1837 Crown Sampler.
The weekend went fast. Monday, Monday. Good thing that I have a short week ahead of me.
