Simply Elegant Needlecase

This design is by Lorri Birmingham. I did this one once before for my daughter. This came as a kit and I did the kit for her and I changed the material to white and the beads and ribbon to lavender for me.

This is the back of the needle case

Heart Needle Case

Here is the inside of the needle case. This is the second one and last. They came out very pretty but, they are a lot of work.

Back of tuffet entry

This is the back of the entry for Victoria Samplers contes. I've made it into a little pocket, don't think I will every use it as such. It does make a great hanger on my kitchen cupboard knobs.

VS contest Hear Tuffet

I have finally finished my heart tuffet. This is my entry for Victoria Samplers contest to be judged in April. I decided to redo the dangley stuff so now it looks like a fushia blossom along with a beautiful crystal teardrop.

This plant was given to me by a gal that my husband did some work for. It has the most beautiful orange and yellow flowers and the plant is a beautiful dark green. What a beautiful plant and, I've been looking on line for others and how to grow them. Since I've grown orchids successfully I should be able to grow this beauty and I am sure I will own others. Thanks Isabella.

December Santa Pillow

I've been working hard on my projects and this is number two finished. This one is the December Santa from Heart Strings. Pat Thode did a full year of these santas with tuck pillows to match.

English Garden

It's finally done!! I don't want to say that this was one of the most awful projects I've done in awhile but......my eyes have fallen out long ago. It came out beautiful and I'm very glad that I did it but, I will think twice before I do another 40 ct. silk gauze with so much back stitching. The actual stitching was not that bad, just the back stitching. I will be taking it to the framers to have it mounted and then I will bully my sweet hubby into making me a frame.
