Good Morning....It was a lovely week here. It seems spring is coming and I could not be happier. I did spend this week doing some stitching and some finishing. But before I share all that, I have an advertisement for a company I came across thanks to Brenda and the Serial Started on Floss Tube.
I have started putting my flosses on floss drops etc for my bigger projects. I have found it is much easier to find my flosses when I am using a good number for a sampler. But winding those flosses can be a real pain. I have used all manners of things to wind my floss with varying degrees of success. My only Haul this week was this lovely tool.
Now to the stitching.
I did some finishing this week. I took out the bunny's nose and eye on Hippity Hop and I was much happier with it. It is now residing in the Spring dougbhbowl.
While cleaning out some drawers I cam across two pillowcases I had been saving. One was stitched by my Grandmother Henderson and the other by my daddy's sister, my Aunt Anna Faye. I thought to myself, why not make them into smalls for my dough bowl as I do not use them but could not get rid of them.
Here is the one made by my Grandmother Henderson. She was quite the needleworker. She could do needlework as well as tat! This was done when she was elderly so it was not her best work but it is precious to me.
As for stitching, I got a start on Though He Seemeth Sleeping.
Then I managed to complete all the blue stitching on Feast of Friendship's house.
Lastly, I got out Lady Liberty by Blackbird Designs. I worked on it last year but put it away for a while. I hope to complete it by June so it can come out with the July stitching. It will be made into a drum.
I keep looking for the new designs that were released at the Needlework Expo but so far, none are calling to me, which is a good thing. I have plenty to stitch here in my stash.
Happy Stitching. Don't Forget to Spring Forward!!
