A Few Late Summer Finishes

“Mustard Seed Manor Sewing Book”
Design by Stacy Nash

I bought this kit back in 2013
Stitched it on and off
Finished stitching in 2019 and finally it’s fully finished!

Here is the inside of the sewing book  
Everything that you could need

A place for pins and needles and floss too

A pocket for your pattern and linen and a place to store your scissors

Of course the back needed a little love ;)

“Truckin Along - August”
By Stitching with the Housewives

This was such a joy to stitch and was perfect for my birthday month.

I also made a little scissor fob to use for my fall stitching.
This was a limited edition kit by With Thy Needle and Thread. 
I had leftover thread and so stitched it again.

I made it as an octagon pinwheel, but forgot to add the pins lol.

I love the backing fabric.

Sign from “Truckin Along - September”
By Stitching with the Housewives

It was charted for pumpkins in the bottom corners,
but our family tradition is to go apple picking in September
So I decided to change it up.
I also changed two of the floss colors.

And here it is all finished.
And I had the perfect place to put it...

Great with my Rae Dunn apple pieces 😊

“Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children
And walk in the way of love, 
Just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us
As a rag rant offering and sacrifice to God.”
~Ephesians 5:1-2

A Stitching Adventure

Last month, Mom and I attended Rebekah L. Smith’s 
Flower Pin Cushion class
At The Crafty Ewe 
In Broadview Heights, Ohio

We had such a lovely time.
Mom shared her latest masterpiece with Rebekah - 
a limited edition pattern by Rebekah L. Smith and Lori Ann Corelis.
 You can’t tell with the masks, but they we both smiling :)

We were thrilled to receive a great goodie bag from The Crafty Ewe filled with this great collection of Valdani threads. 

And we even had time to stop at a few antique malls, including this favorite.

I found this huge pincushion that reminded me of an
old trade sign and is about as big 

A well used tomato pincushion 

And some vintage notions.

Here is Mom’s completed class project.

And mine. 

It’s reversible, with a different color way on each side. 
Perfect for putting out on a table so you can view both sides.
And not only is it a pincushion, but the butterfly is a needle keep complete with a magnet.

Such a lovely adventure! 
A well done class with only five students 
And we felt so safe throughout our adventure

The Lord will keep you from all harm -
He will watch over your life;
The Lord will watch over your coming and going
Both now and forevermore.
~Psalm 121: 7-8
