Mostly ramblings about some of my passions, needlearts, working on my fixer upper and my dogs, pug Aoife and black labs, Isabelle and Benny.

Lots of projects
I went from working on nothing to what seems like tons! Here is my progress on my floral glove project. I started the gold couching. I'm happy with how I'm getting it on but it's slow. I'm sure I'll get faster as I get experience. I also received my casket toys in the mail last week from Amy Mitten. Wow the quality is amazing. I've done all the prework and I'm ready to start stitching. And I really want to start stitching but I told myself I have to get a little more work done on my glove first.
For the train I picked up again my Petit Sampling Etui. This one is the panel designed by Praiseworthy Stitches. I'm sure it will go fast like the others have.
Here is my finished Renaissance Faire costume. I LOVE how it turned out and the fit is perfect. I love it when a plan comes together. I'm now working on a couple more costumes. I'm going on a Disney cruise over Halloween and we all need costumes for the costume party. I'm going to be Merida from Brave and I'm working on a Elsa and Kristoff from Frozen for one of the great nieces and great nephew and Cruella Deville for the other great niece. Plus a couple more pirate outfits for pirate night. :-) I really love to sew costumes.
Chris - the Grand Marquior was a free chart. I'm not sure if it's still available anywhere but I still have the files - just email me and I'll forward them to you.
