I only have 1 finish to report since my last post two weeks ago. It is another block on my Crabapple Hill Gardener's Alphabet quilt.
And I have a new start-it is Cricket Collection Mother & Child. The model on the front of the chart was in needlepoint. So I decided to do mine in needlepoint also. I'm using 18 ct silver-flecked mono canvas and plan to add some beads into the night sky. I love it so far!
I also had another new start for the Superbowl.
Bad news-after 1 1/2 days working on it I realized that I had orientated it the wrong direction on the linen. :( I had to completely frog it all. Good news is that I had been debating whether I even liked the design. So I scratched it completely and brought out 4 more new things to start !! (More about them on my next post)
Here is DD#1's newest finish-
Lizzie Kate's Christmas Flip It's
I gave this to her for Christmas 2013 and she hung it up this year in her house. Well done!
She also finished it herself. She doesn't sew but it looks great.
Granddaughter #1 had her 3rd birthday. It was a Paw Patrol theme. Here is the cute cupcake tower my DD#3 made.
The little dog biscuits on the cupcakes are edible Scooby snacks from a local candy store. (Don't tell GD#1:)
Here is the birthday girl and Mom with one of her presents.
Here is Granddaughter #2 after eating a cupcake! She is 16 months old. Looks like Mom.
Well, I got something wonderful in the mail a few days ago. Doesn't it look like Christmas?
It was a box of finishes from Faye, the Carolina Stitcher! Just look what I got-
Blackbird Designs Sarah's Needleroll from Thank You, Sarah Tobias
Blackbird Designs Pumpkin Blossom Box
I sent the box, but Faye stained it for me.
Blackbird Designs Pumpkin Blossom Pincushion
Blackbird Designs Pumpkin Blossoms Needlebook
This was a freebie and I told Faye to surprise me. She actually hand-dyed the linen for me! Love the little X's on the seam lines!
Blackbird Designs Land of the Free-this was another one that Faye surprised me with. Love the bag!
Stacy Nash Freedom Needlebook kit from Country Sampler club
This was Chessie and Me Glory (?) It was another surprise finish from Faye. Love the chenille trim and the walnut shell filling!
Last, but certainly not least, Barbara Ana Let it Snow wallhanging. Love it!
Thanks again so very much, Faye! I couldn't be happier!
