Seriously, January is half gone already and I haven’t have one post yet, what is wrong with this picture?! Well, work got in the way so I didn’t have much time to do anything else, but now that I’m done with the project, I hope I will be able to get back to my stitching again.
I’ve kept “The Angels Sang” out during my move and had been working on it whenever I got a moment. I meant to finish it before Christmas, but it just didn’t happen… I’m so late!! But it’s ok, this is such a beautiful design that I think it will look really nice on my shelf all year long no matter what~ So here it is, my first finish of 2010!!
Pattern: Little House Needleworks “The Angels Sang”
Thread: Crescent Colors & DMC cotton floss
Fabric: 40ct Lakeside Linen in Bittersweet
Size: 3.5” x 5.5”
Completion Date: 01-16-2010
I love the pinkish color of the fabric!! This fabric was actually an accident purchase. I was looking for a grayish fabric online and in the photo this one looked gray, but when it arrived, it was not what I expected at all!!! Nevertheless, it is a beautiful color, and I think it suits this design very well~ (Sorry about the gloomy photos… The weather is not cooperating today.)
A friend of mine asked me to make some pillow cases for her couch, so that was what I was doing yesterday afternoon. This is my first time trying to sew a zipper on a pillow case, and I think it turned out pretty nicely. We picked out this corduroy fabric together. Isn’t it a lovely pattern? I love it so much that I think I will make some for myself as well~
I still have so many WIPs that needed to be finished!!!! So before I’m done with them, no more new projects for me!! (Yeah right, we’ll see how long that lasts…) Have a wonderful week and happy stitching~
