2 ornaments finishes

Good morning,

I am really trying to get some things completely finished.  This one is from the 2016 Blueladie Designs newsletter.

This one is from Sanman Originals.  It is upside down but since it is birds and insects I am not going to stress out about it.

I finished this a few weeks ago for the One Day Challenge Honeybee host on the 123stitch! message board.  The theme for March was spring and I chose this.  I added the border and my son picked out the pink for the bunny.

Thanks again for looking and have a great day!

A Halloween Finish

Hi everyone,

I just put the finishing stitches on my Happy Halloween by Sanman Originals.  I love her designs.  I will wait until the Halloween material comes out and make a big pillow to display.  I hand-dyed some 28ct Monaco purple.

I have a few smalls I have finished this week but I want to hit the sewing machine before I show them off.  Hope I can get to it this week.

Thanks for looking,

Pillows and Ornaments pt 3

Good Afternoon everyone,

Well I am back at the sewing machine trying to play catch-up.  Looking back at the blog it looks like I stitched these 2 in 2014.  Oh my, time sure does fly.  Last year was a year of drastic changes in my life and didn't get much done.  I aim to fix that this year. I made this Blueladie Design into an ornament. 

I made this Hands on Design into a small pillow.  I plan on doing the other months this year.

Lastly, I finished this old no longer available quaker by Aury.  I put a green edge around this medium size pillow to give it some color.  My youngest son loves the color green and elephants.  I hope he likes it.

Thanks so much for looking and letting me share.  Have a great week!

2 Sewing finishes


I was able to finish 2 projects yesterday.  The bunny was made into an ornament and Be Mine was made into a pillow.  I love matching projects to fabric and fiberfill is my favorite.  I just love making fluffy pillows and ornaments.  I really need more things on the wall, but that will come in time.

I hope to get more done soon. 

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Update on my Palko-Lap SAL

Hi y'all,

Hope everyone is doing well.  I was able to spend 4 days down in Tampa, Florida visiting my family.  We had such a great time catching up. 

I was able to finish the 3rd part of  Palko-Lap's 2016 Words SAL.  It is an enjoyable stitch and I can't wait for the next part. I chose grey and pinks to match my bedroom. 

I also plan to catch up on some sewing so I hope to show you pictures sometime this week.  I am ok once I get on a roll, it is just getting motivated that slows me down. 

Hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
