Hello Friends! The joy of needle and thread in Miss Baby’s life continues. I finished up Miss Baby’s second cross-stitched piece into a hanging ornament pillow for her. ‘
In her first stitching project, I had Miss Baby work on stitching rows with spaces in between rows so that she could just focus on the concept of making individual stitches and not get confused on when to poke the needle upward or downward etc. Click here to view more pictures of her first project.
After she successfully stitched her first project, it’s time to get down to “real” stitching — stitching rows and not be confused by the concept. So, I had her stitch pink row after pink row… and then, we finished off with a few brown rows to make a picture of a thread spool.
And I have these REALLY REALLY REALLY cute fabrics from Benartex’s Made With Love line. You may recall I have used the fabrics to make a pillowcase for the 1 Million Pillowcase Campaign. Click here to read more the pillowcase.
So, Made With Love has this REALLY cool patch print fabric that has a perfect patch to go with Miss Baby’s stitch thread spool…
I used one of the patches from the patch print fabric and a few scrap pieces from the pillowcase I made to finish up the hanging pillow ornament for Miss Baby.
See the little thread tail there — that was an afterthought, Miss Baby’s… not mine. She insisted (with no wiggle room) the thread tail to be stitched before I finished the pillow ornament. So I traced out the tail with my washable marker for Miss Baby to put her backstitching to practical use. Sometimes I wonder where she gets her strong will!! Erm… yeah, let’s not go there. :)
We will be working on Miss Baby’s 3rd stitching project soon… as soon as Mom gets the supplies ready. Stay tuned.
Thanks for stopping by. I do feel much better today — thanks for your sweet wishes and prayers! I shall catch up with you later.
