Happy Easter! I hope the Easter bunny brings you lots of chocolate! ;)
This past week I finished a couple of small cross stitch pieces before I worked on my 6 Fat Men again. The first piece I did was Lizzie Kate's Limited Edition "Chicks". It's stitched on the linen that came with the kit. I used all the threads called for and substituted a couple I didn't have on hand. Here it is . . .
Today I actually had time to sit down and make the piece into a pillow.
Last week I also finished another Lizzie Kate Limited Edition design, "A Bee C".
I stitched this on the linen that came with the kit. I used the threads called for and again substituted a couple I didn't have on hand.
I don't know if you remember or not but I'm taking part in the Stitch-Along over at www.stitch-a-long.blogspot.com. We're doing a small project every month instead of a quilt this year. This month's project is a pincushion from the Some Kind of Wonderful book by Anni Downs. Here it is . . .
The pattern on the sides are embroidered with pink perle cotton. The top is made with 1-1/2" squares of Pam Kitty Morning that I had leftover from my "My Favorite Things" quilt. It went together pretty quick. Good thing too since it has to be done by tomorrow. Nothing like the last minute! ;)
I stuffed it with crushed walnuts. The pins are two that my friend Donna gave me last year. I thought they looked nice in it. :)
Next month we will be making a wallhanging from the book "Tis the Season" by Natalie Bird. I got a head start today. (Okay so I'm only a day earlier, but I'm usually a last minute kind of gal). I traced the embroidery patterns on some muslin and backed them in fusible batting so they're ready to stitch.
Last by not least . . . my 6 Fat Men . . . I worked a couple of nights this week on the next section, "Snow Friends".
It's coming along nicely. Thanks for visiting! :)
Until next time . . .
