Recent stitches....

Here is my latest WIP. This one is for my Patriotic wall. I am really enjoying stitching this one. It is from Sunbonnet Sue Yesterdays Sweetheart from Leisure Arts. I am enjoying it so much that I am pretty sure I will be stitching some of the other patterns in the booklet.

Now that everyone that I was giving one of these magnets to has received them in the mail I can go ahead and post a picture. The project was worked on black 28 count Monaco fabric over one. I have done over one before but never on black and...never again LOL Seeing the holes was next to impossible. Found I could see them best when using sunlight so much of this was done outside or in front of a window. First pic is of all six of them after I had finished them by making them into magnets.

This picture is an upclose view of one of the magnets.

While I was pleased with the finished product I don't think my eyes much care for stitching on black.
So now you know what I have been doing in my craft what projects are you working on currently?


  1. Love the sunbonnet sue, can't wait to see your next wip. I see you use Q-Snap too!

  2. I love the Josh magnet ! Is that a freebie that I can find somewhere? Sue

  3. I wish there were some way to know when people email sent or something because I am just now seeing your comment Sue...yep nearly two years later. I am so sorry. I created this pattern myself using PC stitch but unfortunately the computer it was stored on has since died.

    and why won't it let me post from my blog account to my own comments??? love technology LOL
