HERE ARE SOME OF THE FINISHES

This is a pic of the pillowcase. See the flowers.

I got the pattern from an Aunt Martha's collection of iron on flowers. I ironed on the pattern.

The pattern included the lazy daisy stitch as well as the outline stitch and french knots. I did it!

The kit was less then a dollar. The pillowcases were less then 10 dollars. You all know how much the floss was. So all in all, the wedding gift did not cost much but it was hard on my fingers. Mary suggested I use a band aid to help and she was right. It worked. Thanks, Mary.

Here is the pattern for the Love project I just started today. It is the pic on the right. I can only do one of these at a time because I cannot do larger projects. I picked that one of the 3 because I like the color combinations of the light purple and blues.

This is the very beginning of this project.

Goals for Sept and Oct

I have already finished 2 projects this year. I am on my way to my 3rd

My goals for Sept and Oct: Work on the Live Learn Love piece that says Love

I will post pics on that soon

I may start another embroidery project. Perhaps something xmas themed? We shall see.

Happy stitching!
