Lots of stitching going on here and so sorry but I didn't work on Ann Dale this time. But she's calling to me and she's right next to my chair waiting. Still lots for you to view...
Last 2 weeks worth my progress update on Fairy Hill by Bothy Threads Cut Thru SAL.
The house is of my moms collection, David Winter - Stratford House, 1981. She loved these miniature houses and cottages. Always reminded her of Fantasy Land in Disneyland and her tiny Tinkerbell's are displayed around them. So to me these houses are all part of moms Tinkerbell collection. So charming - Don't you think so?
This cutie needlebook I had to make after seeing it on Elaine's blog HERE. I was enchanted by the look of a mini book. Emily gave the tutorial link to NanaCompany and you can see it HERE but I made my needlebook themed for Fall. It's a felt pumpkin I cut out for the cover, although it looks like a tomato -lol.
The back of the book is quilted with tiny squares. It was a great idea to use up scraps of left over fabrics. For me? ha I pulled my fabrics out and cut away.
|The inside. I completed this yesterday and today I made another one but a bit different.|
Thank you very much Grace for all your kindness and thoughtfulness. You know what I will be making this week:)
"Christmas Eve" - Prairie Schooler
OH YES - Still no where to be found. One day the packet will make an appearance. In the mean time... I wanted to stitch a Christmas ornament but I had this chart that I had bought last year and pulled it out and decided this was my next Christmas project. Already if you can see - the top border I stitched is too high. Noticed it after I stitched the top of Santa's head. I have studied it to see were I went wrong - no luck yet. But I did have a horrible headache when I was re-checking. Not wise.
Of course I didn't have the recommended fabric.
HERE. I did test a small swatch of the fabric first before dipping in my whole large piece to make sure I had a good color of what I wanted.
Hope your all enjoying September so far. Here our weather was getting cooler but now its been hot again. This Friday and Saturday it's to be in the 100's. But I will be cool (sitting in the air conditioning) and stitching.
With my Love and Appreciation - Annette
