Last week I finished this.
|Brightneedle, Garden Party|
I made this pinpillow from the chart Maggee had given me a couple months ago. My husband says he likes this one best. ;) HA! He says that after every finish!
I stitched this one up as directed on the pattern. One over one, on 32 ct Light Sand Belfast Linen. I did have to switch out two floss colors for darker shades. I used all DMC. I also used B5200 white instead of the creamy white recommended. It showed much nicer.
Here's the back for ya. I wanted to use a solid piece of the light blue material, but I only had a long strip of it left. It is leftover from our quilt I made 3 years ago. So is the other material. See, those strips of material were worth saving. :) The lace is from JoAnn.
So how would you like to stitch this up yourself? I will not be stitching it again, so I would like to give it to YOU! You need to do three things to enter this giveaway:
1. Be or become a follower.
2. Leave a comment on this post.
3.This is the fun one. ;) Your entry does not count unless you tell me which garden party attendee is your favorite. Wanna know my favorite? The pink bird flying in on the left. The one with her hat strapped on. :)
I will draw a winner next Tuesday, August 14th.
That's it! That's all folks! I am stitching up a lunch bag for Miss Madeleine today. She was not happy with any we found in the stores. This one is a small bag, almost purse like. We went to JoAnn yesterday and found the fabrics. She will be a freshman soon! :) I will have pictures for you soon.
Have a great day in the Lord my friends.
