Stitching Update

2 finishes and a WIP. I really should update this blog more often. I always wait and then have a TON to talk about haha.

First off I was looking at blogs and happened upon this freebie. It really screamed Stitch Me for whatever reason so I kitted it up and away I went. I had this red aida on hand and Fred helped me pick out a DMC that popped. We decided on DMC 3053. I really love how it turned out. I've made several types of biscornu but this cube was really fun. I enjoyed the effect of the lines. I found a cute little button and topped it off. I didn't get to enjoy it for long my mom stole it and put it on her shelf haha. This is a picture of the top and bottom.



One time I was shopping at my favorite LNS House of Stitches I found this too cute kit from Pine Mountain. I have a friend that I hoped would LOVE it so I grabbed it. I will wait to explain more until after my friend gets it but here is a picture....I really love how it turned out.



Last week I was out shopping and found another cute kit with one of my mom's favorite saying on it. So I just had to grab it. I replaced the Aida in the kit to a piece of evenweave I had on hand. Here is what it will look like finished and my WIP as of today....





Mom loves beads so I changed the inside border to an assortment of different colored beads. I think it adds a lot to it. Well that's my update. Next week on Wednesday we leave for our GeoBash camping weekend. It's a crazy party and we can't wait!!! Hope everyone is doing great!!!

  5. Love, love, love the owl pillow! Wish I still had an LNS. :( Closest ones now are 40 miles south to Rockford IL or 40 miles north to Madison WI. Usually I just order from 123stitch now. :) I like that saying that your mom does too. All moms need something that says that. :) Hugs, Elaine
