Pick me up off the floor.....


I can't believe, 2 posts in one day! I have some stitching to show off. This first is Love by Praiseworthy Stitches. I finished this piece on Christmas day. It's for my mom - she loves samplers and anything primitive. All I need to do is remember to take it to the framers now.
The next is my Valentine Exchange for Lisa in Australia. The design is a freebie from the Gift of Stitching Magazine. I got word today that it arrives safe and sound. This was my first side pillow finish. I also decided to stitch up a little scissor fob to go along with it.
Sharlotte, thanks for your comment. The picture in the banner actually came with the blog template. I wish I could take such lovely pictures!!
Well DH is home early tonight - wohoo! Maybe I can get out of making dinner tonight and get some stitching done ;) I haven't been able to stitch all week - I'm having withdrawals - LOL!
Thank you to everyone who's commented! I really enjoy them. Until next time, Happy Stitching.

Your "Love" Quaker looks so good that I thought it was the model for a second!! I bought that one in November (was a birthday present from Dear Boyfriend), and am working my way towards starting it. NOw, if only my Linen of choice would come back in stock. I've pretty much got it nailed down on my colours too...

Did you use the recommended colours? What count is your linen?

These are both great! I really like the way the Valentine pillow turned out! The scissor fob is a great bonus!

They are both so pretty. The valentine for the exchange will be adored by the person receiving it. Your moms piece is a treasure. Congrats on the finishes
