Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Philippians 2:3-4

Stitchin' from my kitchen!

Hey everybody!

So glad you are here. :)  I thought I would show you a picture or two of the stitching I have in my kitchen, above my sink.  I stitched the two of these Brenda Keyes pieces 3 years ago.  They are both from the book Small Scale Embroidery.  I did them both on 32 count ivory linen.



The bottom piece I call the Poodle Sampler because I swapped out the two birds for two poodles. :)  ♥




Have a stitchy Thursday.  I know I will. :)

I love the simple black and white of these pictures Vickie, they are very effective in their simplicity of colour. I like how you switched out the birds for poodles to match Mabel and your love of poodles, making them more unique to you. Lovely job.

Hi Vickie, Welcome to the world of blogging. I am kind of new to it all too. Your stitching is very pretty, and Mabel is the sweetest. I think it is a great contest that Nicola is having so we can all see our furry babies and smile :) Have a great day!
