I have had a busy week here at Nanaland...finishing and stitching!
I did use the fat quarter I purchased at Patches and Stitches. A yo yo finished it off perfectly. I did update my bedroom dough bowl by adding some bunnies and eggs. I tossed this little small in the bowl to get a photo.
Here it is with Leta's piece...both are in my Grimmwood 31 bag waiting to go into the dough bowl there.
Easter Sampling by Lizzie Kate.
Stitched on Aida but with a pass the stash chart so I was missing the bunny charm. I added a dragon fly from my stash. Another thank you to Mary and RJ as this was in my Giveaway package. This looks big in this photo but it is actually about 3 by 3.
I found this at Hobby Lobby for just 49 cents in their 75% off aisle.
I also finished Easter Hoopla...
I considered doing a different finish for this but Hoops just suit the hooplas and it is a super easy finish.
My last finish...
I know some people do not like this saying as they don't think it is accurate. And by no means do I think my needle and thread could ever take the place of God in my life but I do find needlework to be a time of silence and contemplation. Often when I am stitching, God brings to my mind someone who needs prayer or something more concrete that I should do for someone. I am learning to listen to those nudges and act on them. So yes, the beauty and solitude of stitching connects me to God.
I had purchased a little box at Hobby Lobby and I thought it might be perfect for this piece.
I am displaying it on the table that belonged to Mama G. I am not sure what I will hide in this little box....Jelly Bellys perhaps?
My friend, Karla, passed this stash to me.
That Bee Happy will be going to Grimmwood! Love those cheery colors. I had to go to Hobby Lobby for DMC floss the other day and I picked up two more of the small three by three Easter signs. They were on sale for 40% off. They are such a great size for small finishes, you can't go wrong when you grab a few!
