Cross stitches that is!
this blog hop to show how stitchy we can be when adding their creations to a Tammy Bag or a pinny.
It's been such fun learning this counted cross stitching thing that Madame Samm
promised me was relaxing. It really has been...after a few learning hiccups here and there.
With the right tools, even I was able to cross stitch.
Just don't look close! I've learned that I'm not so good at counting which means there
are a few stitches that aren't there that should be or are there but shouldn't be.
Seeing those little tiny holes was a must, so I bought three pairs of glasses from Readers.com.
Two reading and one pair of reading sunglasses. In a moment of rushing to clean up my sewing
room, I threw out the mailer they had arrived in WITH ALL THREE PAIRS STILL IN THERE!
Slap my head...I thought it was empty! I was sick about it!
Luckily, another gorgeous pair arrived a week later and I was back to work on my project.
I stitched like crazy and actually loved it!
Then there the magnets...couldn't have done it without them, either!
They held the paper pattern and needles just perfectly in place.
You can find them at Ms. Appleheart's Shoppe.
Once I finished the cross stitching, it was off on an outing with my hubby to take pics.
I had so much fun taking photos of these little bags!
Cori's pinnies are adorable!
I tried my hand at turned under applique...not pretty..so I embroidered the little bird to create mine.
This Tammy Bag has some angora thread on it, but it washed out in the photo.
Trust me, it was a beautiful touch to the stole on this bag!
I added a zippered pocket to the back of this one. I love those scalloped zippers!
With quick trip away from "Dixie" to a warmer climate, I made this bag, too.
I love those DMC purples!
Shall we just say this blog hop has been one big learning adventure for me!
Look's who's hopping and stitching with me:
