Stitching Saturday

Not a lot of finishes going on here this week. I did finish this small.

Cathy Haberman of Hands on Design does a special freebie ornament each year in honor of her wedding anniversary. If you visit her blog site you can download four of her previous freebies. She just added one for this year this week, as I told you the other day. I love it when designers reward stitchers with free charts. She also designed Sunshine on a Stem which I shared last week. I am becoming a fan of her designs.  This was stitched on 28 count white even weave.  I used Colour and Cotton's Petunia as the floss. It is a variegated floss which was perfect for this design.

Here it is in the dough bowl..

I was browsing in the Walmart hobby section and I came upon so many pretty fat quarters manufactured by Waverly.  These are perfect for backing on these little pillows. I also found lots of colors of the little pom pom trim at a good price. Our Hobby Lobby does not carry very many colors of this popular trim.  You never know what you will find at Walmart.

I hope everyone has a Happy Valentines Day!! Now on to finishing up some spring stitching.

What a sweet Valentine finish you stitched up, Arlene! How do you like stitching with the Colour and Cotton threads? Your dough bowl looks great. Enjoy your Saturday!

Good information to know -- about the fat quarters and pom pom trim at Walmart! I will definitely check those out.

Very pretty stitching, as usual, Arlene!

I am continuing working on Snow Angels with hope it will eventually get finished. I've made some good progress!

I love all of the stitches you have in your dough bowl. They look wonderful. Great choice of buttons too! I will look into Walmart. Waverly is a very good fabric so nice to know they are carrying quarter rounds and pom pom too. Great job my friend. RJ

Your little stitching projects look so cute in the dough bowl and using fat quarters to back them is genius!

Very pretty in your bowl. Lovely for Valentine's Day. I decided to step away from blogging. John is dealing with complications from diabetes. Feel free to email any time. Hoping that spring time is not far away!

Such a cute stitch! I saw that on IG in pink and gray and think I may have to try that combination myself. Enjoy your spring stitching--I need to start some myself :)
