Above are pictures of what I made for Deborah
for her birthday. I was happy with the way they turned out. Sometimes I envision things in my head and then when I endeavor to make them, it doesn't turn out so well. The ME pincushion with beads turned out better than what I envisioned and I hope she likes it. I want one for me now! LOL The other little pillow is from Trail Creek Farm. My pictures don't have the greatest lighting, so it's prettier in person, IMO.
Well, all of my guys loaded up in the car yesterday and headed off to Colorado for the weekend. It's a retreat for me, and I'm going to stitch, stitch, stitch!! After my cuppa java and a trip to the LNS, that is!!
I think what I will be stitching on is Apple Sampler
by Birds of a Feather. I've converted all but one color to silk n colors. Or, I might also work on Withering Tulips
by Barrick Samplers. Or Stella Jones
. As you can see, I have a little trouble making up my mind. Apple Sampler and Withering Tulips are already in progress, and Stella is kitted and ready.
I should also do some finishing-but I'll only do that if I feel like it. I don't get a retreat weekend very often!!!! Hope you have a great weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
