When I am not making quilts I love to do needlework. So today I am showing you some of my projects that I have made or finished lately. First is a English Paper Pieced Sewing Box designed by Sue Daley. The box was made as a gift for one of my retreat sisters. This was also part of the gift – it was finished as a tree ornament but I forgot to take a photo after it was finished. It had a dark green twisted cord around it with a red fabric back. This was designed by Little House Needleworks. I also finished stitching this reproduction sampler. I love the wayward “f” in the middle of the lower case alphabet. The original is part of the Chester County Collection in West Chester, Pennsylvania. I also think that the verse is good advice that we could all follow.
Lastly are some items that I just got back from the finisher. The Pilgrim Couple is part of a set that I will stitch in the new year. The Snowman is a Christmas Ornament and will hang on my tree this year with the other handmade ornaments that I have made over the years.
