Fit for a Princess...

A warm welcome to all my blogging buddies and stitching friends! I had a finish that was gifted today and I'd like to share it with you all!
 
Ellie has a little friend and her birthday party was today. Little Kaycee is such a sweet little girl, and she's always very interested in my stitching when she comes over to visit us. So I decided for her birthday I would make her a special something. I made sure to pay attention to her two favorite colors and incorporate them throughout - Hot Pink and Purple. May I present:
 
 
"BELIEVE"
(however instead of "Believe" I stitched Kaycee)
design by: Little House Needleworks
found in Collaboration Silk Packet with Crescent Colours
Copyright 2009
 
 
Believe Princess _ 1
 
Believe Princess _ 3
 
Believe Princess _ 4
 
Believe Princess _ 2
 
I stitched this...
on 36 ct. R&R Cappuccino Linen, using DMC threads in my own personal color choices. I finished off this sweet design using hot pink ribbon that I rusched and bought some purple and pink sparkly beads to accent the hanging ornament, give it a little sparkle and make it shine. I so hope that Kaycee liked it and that she'll hang it in her bedroom and smile each time she sees it :) 
 
Other than this small finish...
that I eeeked out in the early morning hours last night (1 a.m.)....I have had very little stitching time, as I'm still working lots of hours at the hospital to cover for ill colleagues. Gotta love the paycheck though ;)
 
Well folks...
that's it for today, hopefully I'll be back soon with another update of something or another!
 
Until next time...
I'll be keeping my hands to work and heart to God, just like always!
 
Hugs and Stitches,
Vonna  XXX

  3. Perfectly sweet ornament for a little girl's birthday! I remember when my daughter loved purple and pink -- now she's in the army and not one purple or pink thing anywhere, lol.

  29. Vonna: How wonderful to hear from you, what a lucky girl Ellie is to have a Mother that would stitch something for her friend.
    Kaycee is so lucky to have such a beautiful gift from you.
    I know what you mean about the big paychecks I am working 20+ hours a week more then I usually do, one out with back surgery one with a broken leg and all the winter vacations, I am the only female and the senior person I love it.
    Blessings on this beautiful season of Lent.
