Hello Stitching Friends!
I have been busy. I have a couple finishes to share, and a new start.
I finished stitching up this little ornament. It was unfinished from our finishing class with Mona at the Silver Needle. It was my first attempt at sewing a beaded edge finish. I found it challenging to count the stitched edge evenly to space the beads...
This was another one of the finishes from the same class.
Then this was the final one.
I received the new ornament issue this week. I've made a quick pass or two through and found a couple that I may stitch.
Then, my newest start is this
It doesn't look like much yet.
I've always liked this design and have owned the chart a long time. I have more of a reason to look at this now..... Because, we've been let in on a little secret.....
How about that for big news?? Holly and Joe are looking forward to a new arrival late next Spring. Mike and I are pretty excited to say the least! It will be the first grandchild for our family.
I haven't located the pinking shears to trim the felt around the little tombstone ornament. In case you can't tell I finished the top one as a flat fold. I ran out of trim to put around it, so may find some when I have the chance to go to a fabric store and add some later. I need to cover those edges!
I do like the fabric I used on the back....
Well, thanks for sticking it thru to the end of this long post.
I hope you are finding time to enjoy your stitching!
