Penny America

Hello! fellow stitchy peeps






"Penny America" by Tree of Life Samplings
I don't care how I finished it, now what to do??

GD Brianna is always going into my sewing room and picks out a little finished pillow to lay on.
I rememebered I stitched a design for Heather (her mom) when she was her age or probably younger.
I dug deep into a tote and found it, ironed it, picked out a backing material and sewed it up for her to take home




She loves it so much, she even took it to daycare for show & tell.



I don't have a clue to the design or designer, but I may still have the booklet somewhere, lol

I don't think you can even find aida like that anymore, can you?



This last weekend was Homecoming


Kellie with her best friend down the road


Caitlin and Kellie in the black




I won't bore you with group pics but here is Kellie and her date Andrew



Thanks for visiting and for all your kind comments

Cute kids! If you don't like the finish....try adding some trim around the stitching?? Might add something to it.

In my humble opinion, Penny Amercia looks fantastic! What about the finishing are you less than thrilled about?
All the other pics are really nice too - thanks for sharing all the family pics! The dresses are super-cool, not to mention the shoes! :-)
