When I started my new job last August, I was hired as a part-time Office Assistant. And here I am now, working 10-12 hour days having taken on alot more responsibilities than what I started with. I love my new job, however, it hasn't left much time for my stitching and such lately. I am going to try and turn that around.
I'm pretty sure it was in January when I decided to start something for my friend, MamaJoan's, birthday, which was on March 20. I did start it, however, I didn't get it done in time for her birthday. It wasn't until this last Sunday that I finally finished it. I felt so bad about it being so late and was excited that I was finally done. Today I decided to take a long lunch and take it over to her. It was a perfect time as her 3 Minnesota grandkids were there with there moms. It was a nice visit.
I stitched a Danybrod design that I had got awhile back. Kind of a needlebook of sorts.
Here is the outside:
It is a 28ct. green linen. Here it is open:
The inside is 28ct. antique white. I used the DMC's as charted.
The lace is actually a pocket in which you can place packets of needles or pins. I was so pleased with how it turned out. I am not the best hand sewer.
To my friend, Joanus, Happy Birthday. I am hoping this will give me a boost in my mojo and I can get my stitching back in full motion. Lord knows I have LOTS of projects to do!
Thanks for visiting and I hope to be back very soon.
Happy Stitching :)
