New Project

I promised myself that I would finish off a few of the many unfinished projects I have hanging around my sewing/craft room. Over the last while I have managed to cut down my yarn stash by about 15 balls, and decided it was time to pull out the stamped embroidery once again. Many of the pieces I got from my Dad when Mom passed away. I finished off a few of them and stored the others for a rainy day.

That rainy day has finally arrived. At the beginning of the week I pulled a tablecloth out of the tote to get started on.




This is the table cloth. It is covered with stamped daisies and stems. Oh my, I think perhaps I should have pulled out my unfinished dragon cross stitch or even the unfinished angel cross stitch. This is going to take a long time. Harvey figures I will still be working on it six months from now.







This is how far I have gotten in the past three days. Hope to finish another couple of stems tonight. Heck, even one stem will make me feel like I have accomplished something. Each of the four corners have this stamped design. The middles of the sides have a smaller stamped daisy bouquet and the center has a circle of daisies.
Oh well this should keep me busy for awhile.


Off to visit all of you.


Everybody have a wonderful evening.


God bless.

I think you will be busy for a while, LOL!
At least you're doing stamped work. Counted cross stitch scares the willies out of me ;)

This is so spring-y and pretty! I hope you'll show it once you're done. I go back and forth between projects, too. I get bored if I do one thing very long. ;o)
Oh, and that vest is so soft looking and pretty. I love the color of it, and of the bright red purse. I would love to have a red purse, but I lean more toward the rose and pinks. Once in a while I will wear red, but probably not enough to get a purse to match! But if there's a sale.......

Have a blessed week-end!

Oh, Jackie--you've hit upon my greatest weakness--table linens! This is just going to be a treasure when you're done. It has me thinking I should embroider a tablecloth for my DIL (even if it takes me a few years with all my other projects!) She would love it! You are very creative and I love your ideas!
