Spot the Horse

Happy Tuesday,

I'm so in love with Spot the Horse finished into a pouch

Here's my dear granddaughter modeling the pouch for me 
She loves it too and keeps asking if she can take it home, I will one of these days
The backing is like a silk fabric, cut from vintage old scarf found at a second hand store
And here's a better up close view

This is the inside...
The design is by Carriage House Samplings. It's a partial design and I also changed out the sun color to accomdiate the fabric. I want to give Marly over at samplers-and-santas.blogspot credit for the inspiration to a pouch idea.

And hot off the hoops is Mustard Seed Manor Sewing Pouch
By Stacy Nash Primitives.  I have to find the black wool and golden brown wool to get it finished. 
Here's a snap of the inside of the book, and  the fabric that come with the chart

I'm on vacation for 11 days, what to do, haha, maybe more finishing??!!

Have a happy and safe Independance Day

Snooty Parrots

Happy Saturday!!
I finished Snooty Parrots 
By Barbara Ana, stitched on 40ct vintage light exampler linen W/ gentle art threads

The picture looks blurry, but blogger is the only way I can post with a photo
My blogpress won't add a photo, not sure what's wrong, I upgraded my iPad to IOS 8.0
Maybe that's why 

Have a great summer

Summer Quaker

Hello! fellow stitching peeps,

I finished Summer Quaker

It's a bad photo, it was so hard to capture a good one
It is so much prettier in person

Have a great day!!

Framed finishes TaDa


Happy Sunday!!!

On my way up Spring Green on Thursday, I made a pit stop at Lynn's of Madison to pick up a couple finished framed pieces. I absolutely love them. Lynn used them as models for her store for a few months






Vintage Lace by Rosewood Manor
Stitched on Lupin linen

Anna and I both stitched Christmas Garden by Blackbird Designs

Anna stitched hers on 30ct linen
I stitched mine on 40ct linen





Also take notice... Anna stitched Christmas Garden on the bottom
I stitched the alphabet and numbers

While I was here I finished Turkey Trot by Notforgotten Farms





I also purchased the fabric and trim
So when I get home later I will have a pillow to make... I don't wanna go home
