Independence Day celebration!

Happy 4th of July everyone! I finally finished up an old UFO this morning. I had laid it aside when I accidentally made a mistake cutting out the stitched needlebook. I got disgusted and hadn't worked on it in a long time. I was able to change how the needlebook was finished to salvage it as I didn't have any more matching linen from the kit, then I finished up putting the cording on the scissor fob. I had to substitute the beads from what was in the kit - there was no way on earth the cording was going to fit through the gold bead supplied in the kit - after an hour of frustration I changed it out to something I had that worked. I am so glad to get this done as it was at the top of my "UFO" list. :) It is Hillside Samplings Stitching Chair Necessaire - I changed the colors from rose/blue to purples and gold. It is done in DMC and was an SAL on the Legacy board about 2 years ago I think. (where did that time go?!?)

I'm stitching on my Quaker Garden this afternoon and will post a picture tonite or tomorrow. I am really enjoying it so far.


  1. Hi Jeanne~ I dropped by from the PS stitching forum. Your blog looks great - you have done a wonderful job with it! And I am absolutely in love with your Stitching Chair Necessaire - its incredible. I don't think I've seen this one anywhere before...I'm going to have to try to hunt down the pattern for this!

    Keep blogging ~ I have really enjoyed reading yours!

  2. I love this piece and the colors.

    Your blog is great and you
    have done a great job
    in setting it up. I still
    have a lot to learn on mine.

  3. What an awesome finish!!! This project has been on my to-do list for years, but I still haven't decided on a colour palette.
