Sewing and Stitching

A number of my stitching friends from Tuesday night also quilt. They have me inspired to work on finishing my quilt. I took a class several years ago at Thimbles and now I want to finally get it assembled. Of course, having forgotten how to finish it, the gals kindly offered to help me sew on the binding. I will see if I can get a good picture and post it within the next few days.

While blog-hopping, I came across this beauty! Tote Bag What a great way to display needlework! The blog owner, Margaret, makes some very lovely bags! Now I wish I knew how to sew better! Maybe I'll add that to my bucket list! Take a look at her blog for some Vera-like bags.

And a stitching finish for me!! I was working on The Sweetheart Tree's Spring Blossom's scissor fob. I finally finished assembling it tonight. Here is the front of the fob:

And now the back:

The front is stitched on Antique White Belfast while the back is stitched on Angel Blush Belfast. It was a fun stitch. I love all the sparklies. Sandie uses lots of beads and paillettes to add flash to the fob.

That's all for tonight. Have a great evening, a fun to you soon!



  1. Love the Sweetheart tree design and finish, cute.
