I’ve been in the mood to embroider lately. Probably because PipStitch (http://pipstitch.blogspot.com) posts so many cute links.
This first is a pillowcase that I made for the Shelbinator. I got the pattern at Needle Crafter (http://www.needlecrafter.com). If you haven’t visited her site and you like to stitch, you should really go over there. She has tons of free patterns.
Then I made this tea towel for my grandma for Mother’s Day. I traced a coloring page that I found at http://www.texasbob.com. My Grandma doesn’t like Texas or anything, I just liked the pattern…Kidding! She moved to Texas a few years ago. And, yes, I stitched Texas in pink.
In case my superior embroidery skills don’t make it blatantly obvious, those are supposed to be blue bonnets…
Here is a tea towel I made as an Easter gift for a friend. I think I’m going to wear out this bunny pattern from Orange Flower Patterns! (http://orangeflowerpatterns.blogspot.com/ )
And here is the best craft of all! Dollar Tree has small unfinished birdhouses. Shelby picked one out, I spray painted it white, and then let her decorate it with permanent markers. It’s a Mother’s Day gift for my grandma.
Okay, that’s all I have tonight.
