Pincushion Bird

Forgot to post this completed embroidery of a pincushion bird, it was on my 'just for fun stitch list'. It is a pattern by Jenny of Elefantz.

I used a variegated 3-ply Valdani thread (color M24).

More in-progress shots ;-).

Completed stitchery! What will I make with it? A needle-book, or a pincushion, or.... not sure yet. It was a small enjoyable project that served as stitch therapy ;-). 

Have a nice springy week ahead!
Till next time!

Gladiolus

Here is a regression picture post of the flower I'm currently working on, a gladiolus from the same Aunt Martha's pattern Flowers of the Month no.3813. 





My family and I have a lot to do this spring... more than the usual. We have started already, but April and May will have the bulk. 
Hoping y'all are doing well! Till later!

The Rolling Slowed Down

Well, the needlework roll is going at a slower pace these days. Chronic health issues are a pain in the neck (literally too), plus
a hectic schedule. At least there are always good happy things among the regular daily routine. Ok, back to needlework...
this one below, will be the next project to complete.

And.....yes, (blushing) I started a new project. A travel pillowcase for when my hubby goes on business trips, to replace the plain one he normally takes with him.

There are a ton of lazy daisy stitches (aka: detached chain stitches) on this pillowcase. It'll be a while.

Need to go now, hopefully next time I'll get to show you a finished project ;-).
Take Care! Till later!

Epic Alphabet

I'm on a roll. Another one done! 
Can you believe I started this in 2012?

Well, you know the saying; "Better late than never". ;-) 
Indeed!
  
Being snowed in helped. 
In fact, was able to do quite a bit of stitching. Will show you later.
Have a nice week!

Notes: 
Pattern is Epic Alphabet by Sublime Stitching.

New Needlework Mindset Yieldings

Glad to report that changing my perspective in regards to my needlework has yielded quick results. Indeed!
Above is a small design a whipped up the other night from one of the Japanese embroidery books in my stash (which shows a bit on the background). The design is by Hiroko Ishii. Below is a super cute skunk from the same book, but by a different artist. Do you remember Pepe Le Pew? I think he will approve. ;-)
Below is my completed bee square on my ongoing future lap-quilt.
I tell you... definitely rolling with my needle. 

Now trying to decided which of these birds below will make it to the next square on the quilt. Leaning towards the left and middle envelopes.... most likely a ducky. Which one would you pick?
I have a ton of office work to do this week, so not sure if there will be any other projects completed in the next few days, but I'm glad the needlework rut is over.   
Enjoy your midweek!
