Stitchiness

 Ive been feeling
stitchy...

so ive sewn up some
 little houses

 and filled them to the brim
 with lavender
I machine embroidered a background on
 some linen

and embroidered them with some
 pretty flowers

im slowly building up my stash
 of christmas presents...

also made a glasses case for Pop...
( and yes he calls them his goggles! )

More creative space here
Happy Thursday!

What clever stitching. The houses with their little doors, flowers are so cute; not to mention the spotty roof! Pop's goggles are funny and practical. What beautiful gifts!

I love the houses they are gorgeous. Slowly? I would say you are working quite quickly, a lot quicker than I am anyway! Looking at your beautiful needlework I think I might be inspired to take it up again.

One of those houses is a must have for me! Im also wondering if you ever think to sell your cushions like the one in front from the post below?
Your makings are very impressive that they are turning me into a girly girl!
