This is so long and narrow, it was not the easiest thing to photograph. I love the chicken, the chick with the crank, and the bee. I also love the colors. I do not love the banding. 'Nuff said.
My other finish falls into the "not stitching" category. I submit for your review this photo of my office:
I think "Wahoo!" about covers it. My final inspiration was Mark. He asked for sheers for the windows in his office. Yes my friends, that requires the sewing machine. I won't be sewing curtains by hand. At long last, a clean craft table! Did I mention...Wahoo? (I will *not* be submitting further pictures of my laundry closet. There might be one or two items stacked on the washer and dryer. But we won't talk about that right now...)
While I had the ironing board out to get the Soapbox ready for pictures I pressed a few more things. Here are a few pictures of my stuff from the La-D-Da class at the show. The pictures I posted previously were of Lori's sample for the class.
Lori suggested that we stitch each rose in a circle instead of going across the whole design in rows. While this was a bit of a pain, I think it really turned out nice.
This is my box. Lori was kind enough to sign my project card. Thanks, Lori! Speaking of the project card, did you know these are available for purchase? I saw them last night on the counter at Stitcher's Station. Very kewl!
Last month I made Sweetheart Tree scissor fobs as Christmas gifts for my "working world" mentors. They are both stitchers, but not quite as rabid as I am! Janet took home "Rhodes Butterfly":
Jane took home "Baby Bluebells"
I finished both of them (stitching and finishing) in one week. I'm very pleased with how they turned out! They look just like the photos on the leaflets except I only used one color for the cording and tassels.
I have a list of things to blog about but no more time today. Thanks for reading my blog!
