Sunflowers Update 1

This is a terrible picture, but it shows a bit of my progress so far. I am really enjoying this project. Not sure yet how I'd like to finish it - probably framing would be best.

I hope to start The Bookshelf on Thursday as a stitch a-long with my LHN Yahoo group.

Here are the pretty colored fibers I'm using for Sunflower House!

first stitching projects of the summer

I have some very summery projects from last year's line by Blackbird Designs that I am going to begin this week: Sunflower House and Sunflower Charms. The colors are very vibrant and should be a joy to stitch.

I'm also going to work on the delightful Little House Needlework chart, "The Bookshelf." This will look nice in our home, I think.

These are kitted up and ready to go- I may post progress pics here in time.

Philadelphia Ornaments

I picked these cuties up at the gift shop of the visitor's center for Independence Hall in Philadelphia. They were easy to stitch up and look even nicer in person than they did on the package. I am planning to make them into Christmas ornaments for our tree to commemorate our time in Philly.
