To All of You

Can't get enough of Holiday Stitching

First, I would like to thank all of you who
took the time to visit TDIPT last week
for the December update.  
I am always humbled by your
support and patronage.
I got a few other pieces finished and
I love to post these for you to see.
* * * *
I've stitched 2 primitive heart pinkeeps.
The left is motifs from Blackbird 
Designs and the other is just a little
motif of mine.
They're stuffed with sawdust and 
backed with ticking and homespun.
* * * * 
Next is a freebie I stitched from Pineberry Lane that I found
on Patternmart.
When I saw it I was just so inspired that I had to stitch
it right away.  I think I copied it right down to the last 
detail, but I just love it so.
This is so prim.  I'm not sure if you can see
them well, but there are tiny little jingle bells
stitched to each corner.
Wendy is probably one of my most favorite 
designers and I'm sure many of you agree.
* * * *
I also stitched up a little reproduction fabric ditty bag
with a small hanging pinkeep.
I love using wool these days and added
wool holy and some of my French ribbon
I collect.
* * * *
I'm stitching a new Winter Sampler design.
 I have a feeling my friend Marianne from  
Midnight Stitching will be happy to hear this news.
I hope to have this done for release at the
beginning of the year.
Thank you again for your visits to my 
blog and enjoy this wonderful season.

A Stitcher's Finish

Hi friends. I know it's been awhile.  
This is quite a busy time of year
for all of us and I have been 
spending every spare moment
decorating and stitching for my
TDIPT post on Wed. night.
* * * * *
I have a Stitcher's Finish
to show you.
Both of these finishes are
done by my sweet pal, Dora.
She sent me these awhile
ago, but with all that is
going on these days, I just
haven't had a chance to 
post them.
Check out these 
She stitched the Christmas freebie.
Done on osnaburg with silver eyelash
trim.  Wow! so pretty.
* * * * *
She has also stitched Harvest
I love the crocheted lace. Gives it 
such a vintage look.
Thank you so much Dora for sharing 
your wonderful finishes.
~ * ~
Until next time, enjoy the season
and happy stitching.
