I finished up some stitcheries and I am currently stuffing them, well I will be when this post is over.
I have listed the designer of each pattern by the picture – I hope I listed them right. To explain that, I have a stack of probably 200 or more stitcheries that I have already traced out on the fabric I am going to stitch on. That is so I can just grab one and stitch. The problem is, when I did that, I did not indicate who the designer was, so now I have to go back and try to find the pattern in my pattern books (there are many). So, sometimes when I cannot find one I kind of guess by the style of the drawing.
I have a few more smaller ones I did not post because I am not sure what I am going to make them into just yet.
Chestnut Junction Pattern. This one is about 8 X10 inches. I stitched it on prairie cloth.
Homeberries Pattern. This one is about 4 X 8 inches.
Cedarberry Stitches Pattern, this one I am doing one bigger and this one I shrunk down to about 4 1/2 inches square, it is going to be a pin cushion.
I used this fabric on the back of the Global Warming and Jack Frost above. The left side is before I sprayed it with my walnut mixture. I have a spray bottle that I keep filled ready for use. I love how it turned out and it looks great on the back of those stitcheries.
I also participated in a swap with Prim Pals for Christmas and sent that package off to my partner yesterday!! I hope she will love it. I sent 1/2 hard of the red homespun in the background and three fat quarters, a little Christmas tree, two little ornaments, a gingerbread man and snowman I made.
I also have 5 elf doll bodies that are partially finished. I am stuffing their heads today also. It is amazing how much stuffing goes into those little heads.
I received a new pattern today from Sweet Meadows Farm called Deck the Halls. It is so cute. I am set on finishing up what I started tonight so tomorrow I can start on these little guys!
That’s it for now. I hope everyone is having a great week and finding a little time for stitching!!
