The pin keep is straight. The problem here is with the photographer!! ME.
Those little stitches that Stacy uses are a bugger to make. Mine are bigger and they are staying just as they are.
Those little carrots are the cutest little things. I tried everything to get a sharper end on them. I was afraid I was going to push right through the fabric.
This is the last view. This pin keep will live in my sewing room.
My wool project is hanging on the wall. Love him!
I decided to follow the directions and place the cross stitch on the inside of the box lid. I glued the cute vintage stamped paper on the top of the lid.
The lovely cross stitch is on the inside. I just may prop the lid on the box or leave the top off entirely so the stitching can be seen. I may use this little box for my stitching supplies as it looks like Spring to me and not just like Easter.
On Thursday of this week three friends and I will be going to Nashua, NH to The Celebration of Needlework. I am so excited I can hardly wait and so are my friends. There is not a thing in this world that I need but I am going anyway! We have been going for years and we have such a great time. I am sure that there is a funny adventure awaiting us. There usually is. Unfortunately Several of them involve me. The girls get lots of giggles. When we first started to go we drove over and back on the same day. Now we make a four day long weekend and mini vacation out of it.
I would love to see a moose. Not close enough that anyone would get hurt, but out in a field in the open would be nice. Maybe this will be the time. Each year I hope and I keep my camera on my lap ready just in case. Keep your fingers crossed for the moose and for nice weather.
The Celebration of Needlework is always the last weekend in April. This is what we drove in last year.
When we got to NH we stopped for a little....Stitch Therapy here!
And did we need it. It was our first actual visit to this shop. I think that we had all ordered from there before and visited their website. This year I will take some pictures.
Happy Easter everyone. I hope that you are all spending the day with family and fiends. Stay safe and don't eat too many jelly beans!
Hugs and Stitches,
