Hello! I hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th! I've got quite a bit to share today.
First is a picture of some floss that I dyed myself a while back and finally got them wound on to floss bobbins. I used white and pastel flosses to dye. It was so much fun!
I got this book in the mail last week. Lots of pretty projects in it!
And this one jumped out at me. I have no idea why, because this isn't usually my "style" but I've started it. I forgot to get a picture of it, but I'm doing it on 40 count cream linen using DMC floss.
This is a goodie bag that I have had stitched for forever and finally got it put together. It was a freebie from At River's End . There are 6 patterns for Goodie Bags and I've done all 6, but only have 3 or 4 left. I used them as gift bags for jewelry. Edited to add - they are all stitched on pastel shades of Belfast (32 ct) linen using DMC or Anhor floss and Mill Hill beads.
Next is a finish finish. I had this ornament stitched up for quite a while and finally got it put together. The pattern was from a book - one of the many Christmas books. I stitched it on 28 ct. "sparkly" Cashel using DMC and Mill Hill Beads. I'm pleased with the way it turned out.
Next is the "America" piece I stitched a couple weeks ago. This is the backing I used and I finished it into a pin pillow. I may add some white cording, but not sure yet.
I'm pleased with the way it turned out. My finishing skills are slowly getting better.
And finally, my snip-its jar went from this.....
I guess I'll have to make a trip to my LNS to replace it!
I have more to share, but will do that another day.
I hope everyone is having a great summer and staying cool!
