**********************

 

We often have to think outside of the box in our daily lives.... So, why not create a stitch into something unique? Stitch your pieces, but know they don’t ALL have to be finished into a pin pillow or ornament. Here is todays example………

Scattered Seeds   Springtime Pinkeepe made into a foldover

 

Just a 6” x 8” foldover to hold business cards, packs of needles or used to display in a vignette on your bureau~~ 

 

Giving you an opportunity to add a small wool appliqué... I enjoy adding little surprises to my finishes~

I recently had a visit with a dear friend.... Waving at you Barbara McDonald! She reminded me of a couple of older pieces I had stitched and given to her many years ago.... It made me feel SO good to know she cherishes them and leaves them out to look at.... 

Sampler & Antique Quarterly Needlework magazine

Stitched in 1996 

(Unsure of which issue, please let me know)

 

 

 

 

I love speciality stitches, so I had made this gift for Barbara as well...  

Abide Thy Heart designed by Merry Cox

Volume 15~ Sampler & Antique Needlework

circa Summer 1999

 

I loved this piece so much.....

I really should stitch it again for myself~

Barbara still has the original pins and needle in it~

Thanks for visiting today~  Much love from this one year older Carolina Stitcher
