Butterfly Pinpad Finis

I finished up my butterfly pinpad over the weekend.  Cute little piece!  It was a needlework nibble from Tricia at Thistle Threads and I enjoyed stitching it and finishing it. 

Have a great week!

Swan Lake finis

I finished up Swan Lake this week - number seven in the Anniversaries of the Heart series from Blackbird Designs.  I'm half way done!  Yeah!

 This is what my Anniversaries of the Heart looks like half way finished. 

I didn't feel like moving onto number eight (Clara Ellen) so I started the first panel of A Petit Sampling Etui. This is actually the second time I have started it - I started back a couple of years ago using Vikki Clayton silks but I didn't like how it was turning out so I frogged it all out and this is the restart. 

This month in my casket class we received the first two projects!  Yeah!  I'm going to get started on the stitching right away so I can keep up with everything.  I started to convert all the patterns into electronic files yesterday.  It will take forever to get everything I want converted but in the long run will work out great.
