Thanks so much for stopping by,
|I am ready to play !!!! my yard is all planted and in shape...Now I am waiting for school to be out, then the grand kids and I can spend our time at the lake with a picnic....The best part for me is watching the kids play sitting under a big shade tree stitching and eating treats...Life doesn't get much better than that...|
|I have managed to stitch a few items in between planting flower and pulling weeds...First off is my punch needle hanging strawberry...I also love the 4th of July....I leave up my red white and blue decoration all summer long...I thought a America pin-keep would be a fun idea..I absolutely love the fabric I used on the back...I also used the same fabric on the Americana bag below..|
|I have been designing like crazy...The designs in this post come from Moon Pie Primitives..If my computer skills were better I would have these design in pattern form....But, thanks to my daughter Mary who is home for a while in between semester at school (might I add she has great computer skills) I just might get some of my design in pattern form....Keep your fingers crossed for me...These are also my offering for Early Work Mercantile tonight..If you have the time I would love it if you could stop by to take a look...|
All I can say is WOW....We are having great spring weather....Beautiful blue skies warm temperatures not a bit of rain...We even ate outside on Mother's day, it is usual a bit cold for me to eat outside this early in the year...I have to say my day couldn't have been better...I hope yours was the same...I have been spending most of my time outside digging in the dirt...But I did find a little time to stitch a couple of thing for TDIPT for the 15 Th of May...
First is my Liberty Bag....I just love to stitch flags this time of year....My design is adapted from a Stacy Nash design
Next is my Peacock farm Pillow this is one of my designs...Like I told you in my last post I can't seem to put down my punch needle...I have three more designs I am working on...Punch needle is so easy to take with me when I am out and about it fills all the extra little minute I have watching swimming lessons or waiting to pick up the grand-kids..
Last is a sampler pillow I designed for a wonder person I met out there in blog land...I have to say this is my favorite thing to do...I love to personalize my stitching...My friend loves strawberries, her daughter loves sunflowers, her son loves to fish and the little birds are for her husband...She as a dog she love and a very dear cat the has passed away....She also love the color red ...
That is about it for me...I have to get back outside before the rain comes back...I need to get all my plant planted because they will love it when the rain is back and I never complain that it is to green in Western Washington...
Thanks so much for all your kind comments they make my day...
