A Little Bad News And Some Stitching

Thank-you to all my followers for your comments and visits I truly enjoy them.

I had a bad day on Tuesday, we were on our way home from a late lunch early dinner and bam a guy hits a deer coming from the other direction it bounced off his car and landed on ours I was driving, I am not sure why but I did not get shook up like Mike did, it is amazing I kept my cool.
The deer was so big, I used to hunt, this was the largest deer I have ever seen, he did get up after a while and run away.

Now I have been doing some stitching, in between painting working on the back deck and other things that need repair and stuff that needs to be done outside.

I finished stitching my Scattered Seed Needleroll, I am working on the inside and will finish it this evening and construct it tomorrow.

I love this needleroll.

This is the inside of the needleroll I just need to ad the other two needle sizes, then I can construct it.

 Now if you enlarge this photo you will see a line in the fabric, well being the airhead that I am, I started at the wrong end when I put it on the frame and started on the long end of fabric, however I was not going to start over, I have done this before, so I added  linen on the bottom, I will iron it flat and hope it does not show, I  have done this before it has work out just fine.
So sorry it is not ironed I wanted to get a post in today.

I did do some construction on my Jeanette Douglas Class piece from last year.

I plan on staining the inside of the box, I am getting excited to get this one done, I hope to enter it in the county fair and maybe the state fair.

I will be working on the other pieces of this set, they are all stitched but need construction..

I received the second piece of the Scattered Seeds Sampler (there are four projects)
Tammy does such a lovely job creating these designs. take a stroll over to her site.

Well Mike is making steaks with mushrooms and onions this evening, I am hungry.
I hope you are having a great week, i hope your weekend is a beautiful one with lots of fun things planned.
Thank-you for stopping by.

Just A Little Beading

Hello Dear Friends: Thank-you for stopping by reading my Blog and leaving comments.
I have a few new followers, I do not have your Blog address or a way to follow you, if you could please leave a comment with the blog address where I can find you and comment on your Blogs.
Thank-you to all who read and do not comment.
I have been beading and stitching, I will show a photo of my stitching on my next post.
I made the beaded needle-case's, they will be trading gifts for retreat in August.
I like the black one the best, I played around with colors a bit as you can see, they are big enough to hold needlepoint needles, I bought them at Potomac Bead on the net, they have many videos and have lots of sales of beads and charms, check them out sometime.
After watching the video once I was able to make the other four without the video, if you are interested in making them the video is called Crystal Needle Case Cover tutorial, there are other beaded needle-case videos on You Tube, I may try them out.

I will be doing a purple one for Sue and a Red White and Blue for LaRue, they are very special people in my life.

Time for coffee and a little lunch
Have a great Day

A Constructed Finish Of My Victoria Sampler Pin Cushion

Hello Dear Friends: Thank-you all for visiting my Blog on my last post and commenting.
I am excited to say I finally spent yesterday afternoon constructing the Victoria Sampler Pin Cushion, Needlebook and Needle Emery, I like it but still like the first on I did.
The first one has specialty stitch's and different finishing on the needle book.

So sorry about the weird photo, the sun was not out when I took this photo, this is the one from Victoria Sampler Spring Fling retreat, put on by Stitchville USA a couple years ago.

This is the Strawberry Pin Cushion, it is not as intricate as the first on, I am thinking of putting ribbons on the needle book to match the above needle-book, but using red instead of green ribbons,
What do you think?

This is the top of the Strawberry Pin Cushion as you can see, just rather plain but I love it.

See the ribbon embroidery and specialty stitche's on the first one I made, I love this Pin Cushion.

I  am joining Jo over at for:

The Peoples Choice is Mermaids this month, please link over to her Blog, she has some amazing Mermaids to show you.

My One and only Mermaid I have stitched is from Blackbird Designs

I do have some photos from Pinterest to show you, they are not mine but still very nice designs.

I hope your week is going well, I will be posting another constructed design maybe tonight or tomorrow.
