I didn't come up with this idea, but I recreated it. I have another pin cushion I believe was a kit from Just Another Button Company. It was so simple- you glued the felt ball to the top of the spool and tied a ribbon around it. I decided to... Continue reading

This project is so gorgeous. It is from Badger Brook Farms. I am just in love with it!!!! It is vintage everything- lace, buttons, ticking fabric. I love how it turned out. I bought a hanger for it that is rusted with stars on it, and of course I can't... Continue reading

Another sampler by Lizzie Kate! I didn't realize until I started writing up my blog posts all of the summer items I had by Lizzie Kate. I hope that this isn't too boring, but I do really enjoy these types of projects and I hope that it inspires others to... Continue reading

Another Lizzie Kate finish! As you can maybe see, I have an affinity for Lizzie Kate designs. :) When I first started to stitch on linen, as I mentioned in another post Lizzie Kate designs were recommended to me as a entry design to begin on linen because they were... Continue reading

This is a beach bag by JBW Designs. I loved this when I saw this long, long ago. I believe that I stitched it around 12 or so years ago. There was a local cross-stitch stop near me and they were selling the pattern as well as the finished bag.... Continue reading

I finished this Lizzie Kate piece a long, long time ago, like the others I have posted about. I actually think this series was one of the first that I ever stitched on linen. I had started with the March piece, but for some reason stopped at August (I've completed... Continue reading

This was so enjoyable to make. It love stitching and creating with wool. This was a printed image that I bought at a booth at a quilt show. At the time, I had no idea what I was going to do with it, but I decided when I found the... Continue reading

I have another monthly stitch from Lizzie Kate Designs. I had this framed very, very simply with a plain wooden frame without glass. I honestly forgot about this series I stitched from Lizzie Kate, and I actually didn't finish September-December. I hope that I can do them over the next... Continue reading

Oh my, how I love this pattern. It is so beautiful- I saw it finished in a shop many, many years ago, and it was the first Reward of Merit Pincushion I became aware of that was designed by Blackbird Designs. I loved the colorway and also the simple sentiment.... Continue reading

This was a freebie at a needlework event several years ago. The title is Pretty Little Maids by Summer House Stitche Workes. I really like the colors of it, so I thought I would stitch it up. The fabric came with the kit, and was directed to be used for... Continue reading

I'm so, so, so happy this stitch is finished! I started this little project a very long time ago, so far back that I don't even remember when. I think probably more than ten years. It was a little kit from France titled Alphabets. I can't even recall where I... Continue reading

I have made one other jacket last fall that I received so many compliments on, that I had decided to attempt a spring jacket. At the sewing studio I used to attend there would be fabric that people would be trying to give a way from their stash. It would... Continue reading

I have been waiting for this class for a long time! The class was originally scheduled for April of 2020, so it had been rescheduled several times because of the pandemic. I am really, really excited to begin this process, as crazy quilting is something I've been interested in for... Continue reading

I'm so happy about this project! I have continued going to the needlework shop for more classes, and have learned some new stitches and also how to do compensating stitches. I learned then when doing decorative stitches, there are times where you are not able to complete the full stitch,... Continue reading

Here is the April Year in Charm by Lizzie Kate. It was such a sweet project, that I finished a very, very, very long time ago. The first project I ever, ever stitched on Linen was the March version of this kit. I remember being so intimidated to stitch on... Continue reading

This was such a fun project. Admittedly, it had lingered partially finished in my stash for quite a long time. I do find with my projects, if I get to a point that I am not sure how to do, I come to a bit of a halt, and go... Continue reading

Quilting on a lang-arm machine is truly my happy place. I learned to quilt on a long-arm machine through a class at a quilt shop that was local to me quite a few years ago. At the time, my domestic machine wasn't great at handling the bulk of a quilt... Continue reading

I apologize I don't have many details about this project because I can't find the pattern! This was just a simple sewing pattern that I used to go through some of my stash fabrics. It is a reversible bag with a pocket. I use it for carrying library books, my... Continue reading

I'm so disappointed that I didn't post in March! I don't post as often as I would like to, but I do try to post most months. I had a bunch of posts in draft mode, but just became busy and didn't make time for taking the photos. It was... Continue reading

I am so so excited to post about this project. I actually finished it last year, but I didn't have it framed until March, and I didn't end up posting about because Valentine's Day had already passed. This piece was from a class at a wonderful little wool shop in... Continue reading

In seventh grade we had to pick a topic in American history that we would have to write a research paper about. There was a long list of possible topics to choose from, and there could be no duplicates. I immediately picked the topic of quilting, and was on edge... Continue reading
