|Early last week, I finally finished up my last rosette applique. And a miracle occurred: I also finally pieced the borders that went in between borders four through nine--yay!!|
|Now that the rosette border is on, there is a double diamond (or is it triple?) border coming up next--yikes.|
I think I'll be avoiding that for a while and just admire it the way it is on my design wall!
|This was a little project I've been wanting to get to for a while.|
I found an unfinished frame at Hobby Lobby and painted it with chalk paint. It's the perfect size for last year's Primitive Gatherings freebie pincushion (which I decided was way too adorable not to be framed). After I took apart the pin cushion (and used the insides for this year's freebie) I added a couple additional log cabin strips so it was long enough to fit the frame opening.
|I think it looks pretty cute hanging above a shelf in my sewing room and I can enjoy it every time I check to see if it's time to start dinner--lol!|
|Now that the rosette's were finished, I needed a new hand stitching project. It was about time I figured out the border applique for How Does Your Garden Grow. |
My favorite border element of the pattern is the sunflowers, so I added even more of them. Hmmm--maybe overkill???
|The banner will be embroidered with the words "Live Gently Upon the Earth".|
|So this will be my Slow Sunday Stitching for this week--I hope you get some time to do some stitching too! |
