Tonight's picture walk....

Hello my friends!!


The Men's USOpen and Women's USOpen have pulled out of town....Things have slowed back down to our small town pace..... Finally! When the Pinehurst/ Southern Pines townships go from about 24,000 people to approximately 450,000 people.....well, let's just say it's a sight to see~ We embrace the golf business and everything it brings to our community, but having things trickle back down to the sleepy little town we are is nice to see...

I have a few finishes from a couple weeks ago to share.... I'll let the photos speak for themselves~

... Busy times....

Greetings from the heart of golf country~

As the Men's US Open and Women's US Open comes to town, I will be pausing for two short weeks from my finishing for a mini break.....We have been prepping and preparing for this huge event for quite some time....If you have an order in with me, I will be resuming soon~~

I did want to share a Patriotic finish today... I love Beggars 4th by Threadwork Primitivesand knew I wanted to make something special with it..... With my love for wools, antique grungy buttons, charms and vintage seam tape, here is what I came up with~

image
Red check homespun....wools... I just love things with a pocket~


image
...the Freedom charm was perfect on the wool heart...

image
...I also love to tie scissors and skeins of threads inside....


image
I really enjoy taking a pretty stitched piece and creating a unique accessory to incorporate into seasonal decor....

Leaving you with one of yesterday's day photos of the PutterBoy statue at Pinehurst No. 2......

Enjoy your day~

....tonight's picture walk~

Greetings friends and fellow stitchers~


Well......today was the last day of the school year~ and, I just have to say, I had the most amazing classroom of First Graders!!!! I knew before Christmas that they were awesome learners with eager minds~ So, today, I stepped aside, cut all 22 of them loose and watched them soar.... It's just the best feeling!!

I have gathered a few pictures of the last 2 weeks finishes that I created.... Your gorgeous stitches have come to life~~
