I'm trying my level best to stay busy and my mind occupied and I've finished two smalls.
The first one was a freebie at Cross Eyed Cricket and it's a really cute ice cream cone. Well I love ice cream and my hips show every bite I've eaten over the years but I don't care. I did something a little different with the finishing....it's a frig magnet.
I stitched it on 32ct. antique white Belfast linen using Au Ver A Soie 100/3 silks. I love Cross Eyed Cricket designs and this one was a fun stitch.
I made another ornament for our Christmas tree this year and this one is by Little House Needleworks. It was suppose to say "milk, vanilla, sugar, chocolate" but my husband and I have a recipe for hot chocolate that we both love. We take vanilla syrup and put about 2 tablespoons of it in a cup of milk and heat that in the microwave. Then we add the Ghirardelli chocolate powder and it's to die for. So on this one I changed sugar to syrup. It's been stitched to dark brown wool felt and then pinked around the edges. The pattern is now in my store if you're interested.
Then Debbie at Needle Orts has decided to sell my little accessory bags and this is one I made for a customer. On the back I either do the stitcher's name or her monogram to make it even more personal. It has 6 pockets that go around the outside and as you can see, it's closed by a drawstring. If you are interested in having one made in your favorite colors, just drop me an email and I'd be more than happy to make you one. The price is $15.00 plus $2.50 shipping within the U.S..
That's about all I've gotten done so far this weekend. Tomorrow I have to finish up a project bag and I hope to get some stitches in to Cherry Hollow Farm.
I want to thank all of you who are praying for a good outcome of my hubby's PET scan. The emails that I've received and the comments are just heart warming and I appreciate every one.
Blessings to you and yours,
