Tonight's picture walk....

Greetings friends and fellow Stitcher's.....

 

I hope your Easter was good, restful and filled with making memories.... I have had an opportunity to sew up a few finishes for others and myself.... I though got I'd share them with you tonight....

Tiny "x's" edge the design while small peeks of the hand dyed rik-rack edge the small pillow~

An Easter collection to enjoy~

 

Carolina Stitcher project rolls have been coming out of the craftroom also...

19" and 12" sizes are now available...

Made to keep the linen free of getting soiled or wrinkled... Sure does beat wadding up your project in a plastic bag... Right???

My sweet friend, Theresa Meloon of Dulaney Woods, has published her first cross stitch design, Spring Sampler Pinkeepe Drum...I made the stitch into a Carolina Stitcher project bag so I could enjoy it daily... You can find this inaugural design on Etsy....

 

I will sign off with a few more bags.... I enjoy making them and they do help keep you organized...

 

 

I made this bag using last years freebie chart to commemorate attending the Primitive Stitcher's Society Retreat in Williamsburg VA..... I am now 4 short days away from attending this years retreat which is being held in Atlanta GA.... Needless to say I'm on cloud 9. Not only will I be attending as a Vendor in the Merchandise Mall, but I will be an instructor teaching a class making a wool strawberry~ I'm truly honored along with being totally thrilled.... I should have lots and lots of photos to share soon~ If you are attending, I look forward to meeting you!!

 

Keep on stitching,

 

Faye

Today's picture walk~

Hello friends! Spring is approaching fast here in the Carolina's and it won't get here soon enough for me! I've had a few finishes for fellow stitches leave my craftroom here lately..... I thought I'd share some with you this morning....

I recently fell in love with the booklet In Friendships Way by Blackbirds Designs.... I especially loved the larger sampler but tweaked the thread colors after seeing it stitched by Nan Lewis...

 

A couple smaller designs in the booklet will soon be mounted on a distressed box and sewn into a Needlebook.... And, hopefully will be with me at the upcoming Prim Stitcher's Society Retreat in Atlanta....

 
 

I hope you enjoyed today's picture walk.... I'll happily spend my day with the screen door opened, listening the birds chirp in the sunny 65 degree weather as I keep the sewing machine humming.... As my hands stay busy, my heart remains full.....

 

Happy stitching friends~
