Today I was able to finish the angel ornament for my friends daughter so tomorrow I can get it in the mail to her. She did a wonderful bike ride this past July and that's why her angel has a bicycle charm on it. Kind of a reminder for her and the great job she did.
This next finish I did for myself. I had a piece of 32ct. irridescent teal green fabric and I just couldn't come up with anything to stitch on it. Well I decided to go outside my comfort zone and stitch a small quaker on it. I even used a strange silk color for me....HDF Orchid Smoke.....which is a grayish purple. There was suppose to be a pink butterfly in the center so I stitched that over 1 and was going to cover a button with it. Well I don't know about you but I cannot center a design on a covered button to save my life so off I went to my button box. I saw this cameo and I thought "why not". It couldn't look any stranger than the fabric or my color choice. After I added the button then the sides looked bare so I added some pearls to it. All in all, I kind of like it. It's such a combination of different styles that it almost makes a new style. LOL
I want to take this time to thank each and every one of you who entered my last giveaway. You left such wonderful comments about my work that I was just floored!! All of us appreciate nice comments about our work and it always makes me feel that what I am doing is worthwhile. Again, thank you.
My next project is an Elvis design for my oldest grandson, Dalton. He has been taking guitar lessons and is quite good at them and he also has discovered Elvis. Jenn is making him an Elvis quilt for Christmas and I thought I would stitch a design and she can make it into a hanging to match his quilt. It's not a very large or intense design so it shouldn't take too long.
I hope everyone of you is having a wonderful week.
Blessings as always,
