Her Majesty

Happy Friday!!

While I was waiting for my dad at the hospital for outpatient surgery, I stitched up this little baby. It's the companion pincushion for Honeybee Hill by Blackbird Designs

I put it together today, filled it with crushed walnuts that I bought at the pet store. (HINT).... I store the bag in the freezer, so it kills the bug eggs

Thanks for all the visits and the comments, that what keeps me in stitches

Good day!!!

I bought a yard of material, Faye made me the pincushion for the left over material, good deal!

Here's my progress

Lots of stitchy happiness

Hello stitching peeps,

I took the Kathy Barrick workshop on making a journal.
We covered it in fabric, then we fill the pages whatever we fancy
Here is mine

One of the designs we had to pre-stitch

The first page I used scrap book paper, rubber stamps, and Kathy's signature,

Another pre-stitched design

And yet another one, there was one more design, but I didn't get that stitched, soon though
Other pages...

A couple pages dedicated to my sister, birthday card and a valentine that I took out of her scrap book from a long long time ago

It was a really fun day and to meet Kathy was a joy. She's soooo nice and soo creative.

While I was at Lynn's of Madison taking the class, I bought six frames.
Here are four I framed right away, like as soon as I got home

I took out a corner desk in my sewing room, so now I have lots more space to fill the walls. The only real space I have left

Well that's all for now
Happy stitching!!
