Well as the previous post states-"late as usual" here is my thanks piece. I was supposed to have completed this before Thanksgiving-but work constraints prevented that. So, now I am thankful that this is completed-no pun intended-LOL
Here is my Little House Needleworks peach fruit pack finished into a large pinkeep that I am going to hang in my kitchen on a side cabinet. One of my favorite things about this piece besides the cats is the orange cheetah fabric I placed on the back. I thought it went wonderfully with the orange tones in the piece.
I am off to bed again-today I hope to make some progress on my SS mermaid. I have designated Tuesdays to work on this. Gasp! Could I be going toward rotation stitching-who knew. Have a great day and thanks for the lovely comments on Midnight! Happy stitching.
Well, here I am-late as usual. My excuse is that I was working and sleeping. You know the hospital is always open. I hope everyone who was celebrating Thanksgiving had a happy and blessed one. Mine was good despite the working. Not any stitching though. I did go out for just a little bit to shop today-I never go on black Friday. But, today lo and behold I found a couple of items for the kids I just couldn't live without. So, I braved the crowds and they were huge-you would have thought it was free-LOL
Below is a picture of my new kitten-Midnight. She has parked herself on my bed-they know the best places-LOL Isn't she sweet?
This is the new Mirabilia-South Seas mermaid-that I have just started. It will be my first Mirabilia. I have always thought the mermaids were beautiful, but this particular mermaid just really caught my eye. I love the colors and I am going to do it on PTP Jade. I will post a picture when I have more to show. Hope everyone has a great weekend and lots of great stitching.
I am amazed I completed anything at all after working so much last week. But, today I managed to finish LHN's Peach fruit pack. Love the colors in this piece and I love the cat theme. Speaking of cats, I have a new kitten. An all black female that we call Midnight. She is only about 7 weeks old. A co-worker rescued her and gave her to me. We already love her-it's been interesting watching her interacting with the other cats. Kiki, however has not taken too well to the new arrival, but she is coming around. All, that hissing made me a tad nervous-LOL I hope things are well for you all my stitching friends. Catch ya later.
Thanks to everyone for comments and suggestions regarding my first scissor fob. I truly appreciate each and every one of them. You are all so wonderful for my confidence level. Tonight I finished my Goddess Heart into a pinkeep-I really like this little piece. I think it is fun and different. I actually have been able to stitch some despite working so much and I hope to post some pictures soon. Can anyone believe that Thanksgiving is just next week? Happy stitching to all!
Well here is my first attempt at a scissor fob. I used Brittercup's free pattern called portrait of a cat for the front and just put my initials on the back. Since, I like to be ambitious I decided to try and put beads on. Thanks to Carolfor answering a couple of questions for me. I guess it turned out okay for a first try. I need to work on evening out the beads more. I did have some difficulty turning those corners. I also had some difficulty with placing the ribbon in the fob and deciding how secure it with the beads. If any of you lovely sewing ladies have any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it. I should have paid more attention in home economics-LOL
Thanks for all your very kind comments on my Halloween piece and I also very much appreciate your concern for my wrist. It is a better now-thank goodness. I haven't had much time to stitch due to working more-but after the next month that should ease off. I also want to wish my dd Alexis a very happy birthday! She is 11 today. My little girl is growing up. Hope everyone has a good week and happy stitching.
