Spotlight Designer~ The Little Mermaid~

....~Greetings fellow stitchers & friends~

Summertime is calling me!!!! That's a song that this Carolina girl knows by heart~ I recently was asked by Teresa of Crocettando fra le pesti to collaborate with her regarding her darling design"The little Mermaid"...Her design.... My stitching and vision of its finish.... Well, I happily took her up on the opportunity as I LOVE all things summer, beach and nautical...... What wasn't to love????

Here is the end result~~

image
The simple lines along with a blue with browns colorway...ahhhhh....


image
...I knew would want the final finish to be useful as well...


image
A pocket to hold needfuls.... The key charm seemed just right~


image
... I felt like a slightly scalloped edge would seem like the rolling waves...and, it would showcase the seashell charm~~ subtle additions to this prim design~


image
This cute piece will stay the beach... And will put a smile each time I walk by~

Thanks again Teresa for calling on me to be a part of this fun project... Your primtastic designs and freebies, we all love~


Happy stitching!!!

Madame Cottontail & Lonestar Mercantile~

Greetings friends & stitching pals~


... I recently finished my 3rd Madame Cottontail and the fun just never seems to stop! You guys love this design, as I do...... Between finishing lots of springtime goodies, needing wool and having a ginormous case of Spring Fever, I had a spur of the moment run up to Lonestar Mercantile.... For supplies and eye candy.....

Here's today's picture walk~

I just LOVE this place for inspiration, heavenly sights & smells and wonderful supplies of wools, fabrics and antique buttons....)

Sewing Bird finish... With a twist~~

...Greetings... I'm feeling springy today!!


Most of you know how much I love Brenda Gervais designs... And, I am seeing that SO many if you do as well..... When the "Sewing Bird" piece came across my finishing table, I decided it needed a little punch..... Here's what I came up with~~

image
...Now, you may recognize elements of this finish that remind you of her design "Dame of the Needles".... I just LOVE that design also!!

image
...I love the inside pocket as well as the cotton lace wrapped pin cushion and ties for your scissors~

image
The pocket is dressed up with a hand appliqu├ęd red bird.... With a threaded needle charm in his beak... I just love reds.....

image
I can't get enough of the old antiqued buttons.....

image
Tiny spools of red thread are attached to the end of the stained seam tape... It's the little touches that stand out sometimes.....

image
This is a sweet piece.... And, if you're not a "reds"fan, the soft tans and greens would work equally well when finishing this design.....

....more to come~.......
