Throwback Tuesday: This Little Piggy Went To The Market

Miss Piggy was stitched few years ago, more precisely four years ago in 2010, shortly after I got the book. It was a very quick and simple embroidery project, the kind that makes you smile every time you look at it. 
I used the pattern provided in the "Embroidery Craft: Stitching through the Seasons" book by Vicki Haninger. This book is a lovely book with a warm vintage charm to it. It for sure is a pick-me-upper in days like this one filled with nostalgia. 
As you can see, I haven't done anything with her yet. Perhaps she could fit on a small quilt among the hand pieced blocks I'm slowly working on, so I may have to stitch a few other blocks -eventually- to even things out a bit ...hmmm, we'll see. 
What I should be focusing on is on my CQ block Task 5. I'm sure hopping to be back on track once I'm able to shake off the blues.

  1. Your little piggy is way nicer than the one in the book.=)

  2. This is so sweet! I think she would look wonderful on a small quilt :)

    1. Thanks, K.! I'm leaning towards the quilt idea.

  3. I think I remember your little piggy! Do not feel bad. I just finished a New Embroidery with Vintage Patterns project that was embroidered way back then. It is the journey that counts!
