I'll allow "pinning" as long as you pull up the post & pin from it for a direct link for others. :-)

Friday

Not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing just yet. I don't have to run any errands that I originally thought I had (good thing!). Shopped for school uniforms yesterday without my oldest there, but they fit perfectly when he tried them on last night, so no returns for me today! YIPPEE! I do have a mountain of laundry (bad thing!), as is always the case with 5 people under one roof, and the moisture detection unit is coming to look at both bathrooms today & put together a report for insurance (not sure about this one yet). If you can put together a quick prayer circle & say one for me, it would be greatly appreciated!


I have some more pix of items that I've embroidered over the last year, so I thought I'd post them. If you're interested in any item shown here, be sure to e-mail me for pricing. Thanks for looking & have a great rest of your day!

Pattern from the book Folk Art Baby Boy by Diane Arthurs. I used variegated blues on this & really loved the way it turned out. This would make a very simple yet classy new baby or shower gift.

This pattern is from the "stitchin by me" monthly series by Cotton Way. This piece was stitched on sandcastle fabric & features 3 beautifully crafted rustic handmade clay buttons. (I didn't make the buttons - clay is something I haven't gotten into...yet!)


Pattern from Friendship Knots stitched on sandcastle fabric. Surrounded and backed with coordinating stars print fabric. Very pretty & very patriotic!!

Pattern "A Harvest Hello" from Cedarberry Stitches. A fun prim look for the season & would also look nice tea or coffee-stained.

Redwork iris from a 1950s Workbasket pattern packet that I'm in the process of saving. Very elegant & striking done in this single color. Looks even prettier in person! I'm really loving these older patterns - they have so much grace and character.

Lovely, just lovely. Can't pick a fave but have to say how much I love to look at your projects. Saying a quick prayer for you for the moisture detection unit today - fingers crossed things go well.
