A couple finishes and a new start

 Yippee! I finished Victorian Heart over the weekend.  I'm happy with the way it turned out.

I also finished Orna Willis' Midnight Garden by adding a few colorful bugs.  After all, every garden needs a bug or two or more.
This is such a cheerful garden!

I'm not sure what to do with it -- maybe a box top or one of those standups?  Neither of which I know how to do.  Though I did buy some little paper boxes when I finished the Graphic Sampler, thinking I would make it into a box top. 

Now that I have 2 finishes, perhaps I should just do it!

After all, I guess there's no time like the present to learn .....

And last but not least, I finished this sweet little heart.  It was a mystery sampler stitched through the Marquoir Group.

And now for the start ...
This is the beginning of a little quaker sampler.  I'm stitching it on a pre-made pillow cover in my stash.  No  idea where it came from but I figured it will  make a nice Christmas present for someone.

Stitching this will be a test of my patience.  Since this is a finished pillow cover, I have to stitch with my hands inside the thing. 

ACK!!  All that fabric is already getting in the way!

Relax ... slow and steady with this will be my montra.

Happy stitching everyone!


  1. Very beautiful finishes! And I like the new start.

    Have fun!

  2. Very nice work and I love the bugs in the garden. Nice little mystery sampler, too. :)
