So far here is the progress on my husbands belated birthday gift. I still have a long way to go (extra fabric is just hidden beneath what I have done so far).

Valerie, that is a lot of detailed stitching...no wonder you aren't done yet! Stick with it..it looks like it is going to be beautiful.

Michele, I didn't see the sock monkey slippers earlier. Sometimes I don't see the images if I'm browsing at work....but they are so cute!!

Valerie...is that Counted Cross Stitch? It is beautiful however you are accomplishing it.
You must remember to show us the completed gift. Your hubby will love it!

Today I am going to begin knitting a lap-robe for my hubby to use while we are watching tv
at night. He is one of those men who sits around in his under-ware at night and then complains
that he is cold....well, duh? *wink* So, I am making him one that has a large pocket at the
bottom of it...to tuck his feet into. He will love it! I will post a picture once I finish it.

blessings,
peggy

Thank you, all for the compliments. Valerie, what will your project be when you are done stitching it? To answer the question about the Virgin and Child wall hanging for my sister: I took a photo of the art (from our trip), traced it, enlarged it, made pattern pieces for the various parts, then machine appliqued the pieces (fat quarter fabrics) onto a background fabric. I machine stitched the details, but in hindsight I should have hand stitched some of the more delicate areas (faces, hands) because it was really hard to do those easily by machine. I then put a backing on (no batting as it wasn't quilted but that's an option) which I used on the front to create the "wood" frame. As I said, this piece is an "interpretation" of the artwork. My sister loved it. Dianne

Here is my latest handbag. This one is a wool messenger styled bag and sports two very vintage celluloid buttons from Melody's LongTallSallys Etsy shop. The embroidery design is a little victorian bird lady holding a flower..looking forward to summer! It closes with a magnetic snap and has an exterior pocket on the front and two interior pockets.

Dianne,

It will say Harbor Lights and show four different lighthouses with waves (including three charms). It will be a nice cross stitch wall-hanging for my husband.

Finishing a quilt top I found years ago at a yard/estate sale. Its from the 20s or 30s in perfect Dresden plate condition. It deserved to be hand quilted, but my fingers don't work that way anymore so I had it machine quilted. Now I'm finishing the edging and will add some yo~yos to the top to give it my own twist. Will post when its finished.

WOW! Everyone is making such cute items! Having 1 full-time job and 2 part-time jobs, I have just been extremely tired when I get home. I have made ...a pair of pink pillowcases. I am still trying to figure out how to post a picture....ugh!

I love the little hats and the children are adorable!!! They look so happy to be wearing their darling hats. I'll bet they are warm too.

Sharon, can you post a photo of your new/vintage quilt? I would love to see it.

Judith, the black walnut ink is so cool!! I love the earthiness of it. I honestly have not seen a heart-shaped yo-yo yet. Now I know what everyone is talking about on the swaps!!

Katmom...those hats and children are just too too too cute!!!

Sharon...can't wait to see that Quilt when you get it done. Ooooh from the 20's or 30's...now,
you got us excited to see that Vintage Beauty.

Judith...the Black Walnut Ink turned out good! Looks nice on those bookmards...and I love the
Christmas Yo-Yo!!!

I am working on a lap-robe for hubby. Will post picture when it is done. I am making it in the
Basket Weave (knit) pattern. He won't care ... but keeps me from being bored. LOL

blessings,
peggy
