Nancy of Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe is having a Patriotic Star Spangled Banner Box Set give away. She has dyed up the most gorgeous patriotic colors and has boxed them into a gift set! I have DEFINITELY entered the contest as yall know how I love to stitch patriotic things!!!
So head on over to her blog and enter to try to win some patriotic floss. I have used her floss before and I will tell you that you won't be disappointed in the quality!! It is great!!
I wanted to wish all my friends and family Happy Easter. Today we celebrate our risen Lord and Savior!! I pray will be blessed this beautiful Easter Sunday and find celebration for this wonderful Lord's day.
We attended our Sunrise Service this morning at the Prairies Chapel for WPAFB. It was a beautiful service and yes DH brought a wonderful sermon this morning.
I want to leave you with a very special cross stitched piece I stitched. This is Examplars From The Heart Resurrection!!! This picture was taken after Jill Rensel framed it for me.
Jo of Serendipitous Stitching is our wonderful host of the Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop. So go over to her blog to start your journey to visit all the different blogs collecting the letters to form a mystery phrase.
I love stitching spring projects so what do I do but start a NEW PROJECT just to have to post for our Easter Treasure Hunt Blog Hop today!! I had a hard time to decide with all the spring charts I have in my stash. I chose JBW A Very Merry Spring and then pulled Waterlilies Rose Blush silk to stitch it on 28ct White Cashel. I just wanted a little pillow to display and it is filled with polyfil.
I also wanted to share another project I had stitched years ago and made into a small pinkeep. It is one my favorite spring smalls to display especially at Easter time with the church! This is from PS Bunnies and Chicks.
Now for the reveal of my letter that you have been waiting to find out. It is.........
I have stitched Sew Stitcher from iStitch Designs but I am wanting some opinions. Should I stitch in my name in the lower left hand corner or 2017 or both? Any suggestions will be appreciated so please just leave a comment on this post.
I finished sewing my Easter dress yesterday but I did sew in the hems for the sleeves and the bottom of the dress today. I also made a matching hairbow. I wasn't going to but DD talked me into it. So it it is finished as well today. I will share picture of it after Easter.
I didn't post my "Vintage SAL" on Apr 1 for my Stitcher's Garden message board group as we had just gotten back the day before from being away on Spring Break with the family. However, that weekend after getting back home allowed me time to make a little more progress on my Mirabilia The Lady of The Flag. Here is where I am at today.
It's not much but it is getting there. I have been working on a few other smalls and I hope to have quite a few to share at the end of the month for my Smalls posting.
DS is taking the ACT today. So I will be praying he is doing well while stitching here this morning. I hope you are finding time to stitch an ornament for this month. I got behind on March's ornament so I will finish stitching that up today. Then hopefully later today I can start sewing on my Easter dress to match DD. Sadly we won't be together on Easter as she is back in college, but at least I was able to get her's made over her Spring Break to take back with her. YEAH !!! LOL
Heather of Stitching Lotus is our host of our monthly Smalls SAL. You can click on her blog name to be taken to her sight to see all the other participants and to sign up if you would like.
I have been stitching on bigger projects for the month but one is a medium project and not framed. I would rather show it to you framed than now unframed.
Here are my 2 Smalls that I can share with you this month. The first one is a Foxwood Crossings letter sled for my dear friend Carol of iStitch Designs. It is a very belated Christmas ornament but I had sent it with her very be-birthday present as well. I promised Carol I wouldn't be so late on her birthday and Christmas presents this year.
The second Smalls I finished was this SB Embrace The Journey bag that I bought when I went to the SB retreat October 2016. This was such a fun little bag to stitch up and was very quickly done.
I was also stitching on my PS ornament for this month but sadly he did not get finished in time. Therefore....I will have 2 to share for next month!!!
Yeah! Today is our TUSAL report!!! I don't think I have as many ORTs as I did for last month. Maybe I just stitched the thread all the way down to practically nothing. LOL But here is what I have to share with you today!!!
Now it's back to stitching time for me!! I am working on JN Peacock Cypher which is WAY OVERDUE for being finished!!! I really need to get stitching on some more ornaments as I feel like I am getting behind on this year's Christmas gifts.
