"Bird Out of the Bag"
I had so much fun stitching this design!
And I am thrilled with the results!
(I tweaked the design a bit on the bird, but not much.)
It's fun to play with embroidery stitches for a change.
And adding a bit of fill under some of the appliques for dimension.
I thought that the back needed a little something,
so I added a little patch from the leftover wool.
And added a bit of embroidery, too.
This past week we had stitch club at Cathy's gorgeous home.
Knowing that we were coming, she decided to decorate her mantle for Halloween.
I fell in love!
Isn't it darling?!
I love those little spider web candles - too cute.
I kept disappearing to go take another peek - so much to see!
Cathy has a great eye and I love how she put it all together...
Love those owls!
Speaking of owls, our friend Susan completed this stitch.
I know that this is in my stash and now I need to locate it!
Completely off topic, but I had to share.
Monday was our 30th wedding anniversary and I was so surprised and thrilled to receive 30 roses at work from my dear husband! I am so blessed!
So I am sure that you are wondering where the adventure comes in...
Well, this weekend this bag will be coming with me as the Bittersweet Sisters and I are off on another adventure! If you search on my blog for "Bittersweet Sisters", you can find out about our past adventures. Or try clicking here and be sure to click on "older posts" at the bottom to see more.
I'll be back to tell you all about it and have a little giveaway, too.
