Just A Little Stitching

I hope you all are well and having some great Stitching progress.
Please keep our friends in hurricane disaster areas in your prayers along with our friends from the Ukraine 

I found this on Pinterest, I am not sure of the designer, the words are German I think.
Grobe der Stickerek Stoltzushmitt at least that is what seems to be printed it’s a bit blurry
I used DMC threads as close to the colors of the chart as I could, the fabric is an orphaned piece which I think is 32count, I counted threads but with them not being the same size thread it was between 31-32 count
I am sure one of you are asking why an Easter design well I think I need to get going early I am always behind.

I did finish Stitching the Patrick’s Woods A Pennsylvania Pin Cushion but need to construct it, I have found a coordinating fabric not sure of I like it so much, need to make up my mind, I did come up with a idea I am going to use a one-inch pvc pipe to do the roll Mike will drill a hole for the thimble, I hope it works will let you know.

My next project is a felt table rug for fall, I needed a piece of fabric for the backing of the Patrick's Wood's piece went to a new to me quilt shop by the name of Noble Quilting,

I was welcomed with the greatest smiles, I was amazed at how much was in this little store, oh my I really need to learn to quilt.

                                      I picked up this sweet design, I will start on it later today 

I only have a few fall settings up in our home and a couple outdoors, we have had so many things going on here I do Adoration at least once a week and fall events going on in our area, my one favorite is the pancake breakfast, yum.

Please continue with your prayers for Mike he will be having surgery on his carotid artery on the right side on Nove. 14, he will also have back surgery in the near future and possibly prostrate surgery.

Stay safe pray for the full recovery of the hurricane victims and pray for the people who have passed and the healing of their families after their loss.

                                                                        Big Hugs

Just A Little Stitching & Finishing

 Hello my dear Friends: It has been a rocky month here in the Laurent home but still livable one.

I have done some stitching and finishing and hope to get more finishing done, I have so many projects from years ago that are sitting in a pile in my sewing room waiting to be constructed or framed, I am so behind.

 This is my Patrick's Woods needle roll which I finished stitching now I need to finish the rest of the pieces that go along with it.

This is the fob that is attached to the roll-up ribbon
I will finish stitching this tonight

This is the roll-up; it is a lot smaller than I expected

I hope to have all of the design finished and constructed next week

I was able to construct the Pin keep and scissor fob and hope to get the rest of the set finished this week
This is from Brenda Gervais's Valentine Sampler
I need to get coordinating fabric to finish the rest of the pieces

          I added the glass heart and ribbons I thought it was a little bare without something added
I need to add the ribbon for the scissor fob, I did do a stuffing instead of a cardboard finish on the fob

I did finish constructing this design, I am not sure when I stitched it or the designer

As I was going through my ribbon and trim drawer I found this package from JC Penny's, I remember when Sears Robuck and Co along with JC Penny's sold fabric, ahhh the good old days are greatly missed

Just think 13 cents for trim was a lot of coin way back when

Just a few cartoons to make you smile

It is gloomy and sprinkling today, we have a pig roast/birthday party to go to this evening, it is only 65 degrees and a little windy brrrr
My dear friends in Florida and the east coast I am sending thoughts and prayers your way for a speedy recovery after the storms hit your area
