~ Good Day Friends ~
I know, I know three posts in such a short amount of time?! What is wrong with her??
I've been having a spate of creativity of late and when I get into experimentation mode like this...I just go with it!
When I stitch...
I have a little Altoid Tin that a very sweet lady stitched for me, a loooong time ago when I was strongly involved in exchange groups. I loved it! I kept my needles and scissors in there (and other bits and bobs). The top was very puffy and I used it as a pin cushion to place my needle as I ended off, prior to re-threading it.
that sweet little tin (after years of hard use) got pretty nasty from being thrown in and out of bags and then horror of horrors, I sat on it. That pretty much did her in.
I missed that tin. I longed for it. Would reach for it and it wouldn't be there....
What to do?? Make me another!
~ So I did ~
"Two Red Houses"
(although this is only the "One Red House ~ Vonna Version")
Designed by: Little House Needleworks ~ Diane Williams
Copyright: a very long time ago and I don't have the pattern right next to me
Stitched: 1 over 1 on 28 count tea/coffee dyed lugana
When you open the tin up....
I stayed into the "home" mode. I'll let you see for yourself:
~ A sweet little pillow and coverlet ~
for my scissors to be warm and comfy...
with the pillow doubling as a pin cushion!
~ The starry sky is framed with the sweetest set of curtains ~
that of course doubles as a needle nest!
size 24 on the valance
size 26 on the left curtain
size 28 on the right curtain
~ I pretty much am in love ~
~ What about you? ~
Until next time...
I'm about bone dry on my creativity now! Plus, I have a lot of models to stitch and finish for a couple of sweet designers. You all will be anxious to see, someday.
I'll be back with my fair results...
in a couple of weeks. Wish me luck ~ open class turn in day is this Wednesday (July 23, 2014), I'm a whole lot nervous, but anxious at the same time!
Hugs in stitches,
