Stitching Along....


Three pretty mother of pearl buttons made for a simple square.


This square was inspired by the sunny days we've been having, but it didn't quite turn out the way I'd hoped. And what's with the wonky jog in the bottom right corner? But I decided to leave it. In the grand scheme of things, it might prove charming. Here's hoping.


And one little tulip-inspired flower. I spent some time today thinking about future squares, what I want to include, etc. I came up with some ideas I'm eager to try out. Some new stitches, too.

So cute...it's really like a little sampler, isn't it. You may have inspired me to try this. I need something to do.

Sweet little squares - very spring-like! Will this be a tea cloth, a wall-hanging, a pillow cover?

They say that all quilts should have a 'mistake' somewhere, to make it more personal!

The square with the pearl buttons put Van Gogh's Starry Starry Night right into my mind. Beautiful work and project.

I really like this! Embroidery is another hobby I'd like to take up. Been on my list a while but I need to get through a few other unfinished projects first! Can't wait to see how your project progresses.

Hi Lorrie,

I'd say that was some artistic liberties and a treasured future heirloom!

Hope all is well with you. I appreciate the time you took out of your busy schedule to stop by the farmhouse for a visit!

Have a great week!
