A Little Update

Here is a picture of my framed "The Bookshelf" next to a couple of our own well-loved bookshelves!

I am working furiously on Sunflower House so I can get it off my scroll bars and get on with Quaker Garden. Then I only have 76 more things I want to stitch - ha ha!

Bookshelf Happy Dance!

I just put the last stitches into The Bookshelf. My scanner is not quite big enough to capture the whole thing, but you get the idea!

I did end up changing the quadrant for "Little Women" - I adapted a little tea motif from an old booklet and stitched it over one so it would fit in the area, adding in the names of the four sisters in backstitch. I thought books, tea, and a candlestick captured well the feel of Little Women. I am very happy with the result and can't wait to frame it!

Bless the Baby

Thank you for all your kind comments on The Bookshelf! I should be able to share the finished product in a couple of days.

Here is Lizzie Kate's "Bless the Baby" which I made for a friend's new daughter this past weekend. I took this picture before stuffing with fiberfill as a pillow. The backing is a soft pink fleece. The button, a bit hard to see here in this picture, is a little bunny. I love this design for a quick gift!
