Hello all my sweet friends. I've been under the weather but mending has begun so I'm back doing some stitching. I'm currently working on Bent Creek's Pumpkin Flower Sampler and it's been a fun stitch so far. The pattern called for little square buttons from JABCo but my LNS didn't have any but did have these little rounds one and I happen to like them more. I only have to finish the pumpkin at the top and add a little more greenery and two buttons and it's finished. I'm thinking door knocker for fall....
I've also been working on a hexagon quilt for myself but I don't have any pics of it yet. I do want to share with you what I'm going to start tomorrow. I found this pattern thru Pinterest and couldn't help myself. I think it's adorable and can be purchased here.
Is this not the cutest bag you've ever seen? The little roof lifts up and the house is a pocket. I know I'm using a tan linen for the background but I haven't decided what colors I'm going to use for the remaining parts. It's fully lined and I also plan on adding some inside pockets. It looks small but it's suppose to turn out approx. 12" x 16" which is a really nice size to hold all of my junk. LOL
I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July. With me being sick, we really didn't go anywhere and just spent a quiet evening at home. Vallie doesn't appreciate the fine art of fireworks and was hiding under a blanket all evening until they ended. Poor little baby but she has recovered nicely. DH thought it was good she has white fur - that way its harder to see the grey that the fireworks caused. LOL
Oh remember the flower hexagon table topper I started and showed in my last post....well it is now residing in my sewing rooms waste basket. I just couldn't get it right and my temper got the better of me. :o(
