A Couple of Quick Stitches

I think I am settling back in after retreat. That was such a fun week.

I have stitched and finished a couple of things. First, is my red stitch. This is a freebie by Carol D.


This is stitched on 40ct. Antique White linen with DMC #53 and Threadworx #1051. I made it into a pincushion using an antique mason jar top. Love it!

Then I made another pink stitch, as I didn't get one done last month. This is an Elizabeth's Design called "Love".


This is stitched on 32ct. Antique White Belfast linen with DMC floss. I really love this design.

That's all I got for today. Thanks for visiting.

Happy Stitching :)
