More Stitching

Have some more stitcheries to show you guys. All are from Notforgotten Farms. The first two I have not over dyed yet. They are about 5” X 7”.   Typically I  over dye first but since I was using a brighter DMC floss I decided to wait.


I really like how they turned out with the exception of this one. If you notice on the roof of the house on the left, it is supposed to be an X and a Y, the house on the right is supposed to be a Z. I need to pull those threads out and stitch them in blue also like the other letters.


This one is one of the real small ones, about 3” X 4”.


I also have found a new use for my Bowflex Treadclimber besides holding dust. It works great for the Littlest Pet Shop crew to work out on.  I have been enjoying walking outside so much I never use it anymore.


More pillows finished for the Rusty Bucket.


When I dropped off the pillows today I saw someone special I have not seen in a very long time. She is working at the Rusty Bucket and had this box for me. Thank you Lynette!!!


She is so generous. It is full of primitive and country patterns for dolls and quilts! It is amazing. I love them all. There were so many they covered my entire bed and I still had some stacked in the box.


I have told you guys before my son Gordon loves to have a tomato plant during the summer. We planted it a little late this year and today he was able to pick his first tomato.


Isn’t it the goofiest thing ever. But it is well loved!! I am a little scared to taste it.


I am off to try and get some sleep. I wasn’t able to sleep last night, not because of doing anything exciting but I had a little taste of insomnia, eyes were too tired to sew but the body wouldn’t cooperate!

Have a great night and I hope you were able to find a little stitching time today!!

how cute...Alice put those there I take it...:) Gordon looks so proud...its great to see the fruits of labor with having a garden...did he eat it yet? I ate my first cherry tomato today!
Josh planted corn and beans in his "little spot" in the garden...he's so proud too!
Love the pillows and I'm dying over all those lucky lady! Love your stitched blocks...Bless you, I hate doing that kind of craft...but so admire it and of course love to own it.
Have a great night!

That's some very nice stitching you have there! You're very quick too! Those burlap pillows are all great! You sure that tomato didn't cross pollinate with a gourd one night... while you were all sleeping? lol! I bet it tastes great though! :-) Great selection of patterns from a very generous friend!
