FINISHED "French Lavender Pocket"!


I have finished my "French Lavender Pocket".  I needed to find the buttons, ribbon, and cord I needed, so it took a bit longer to finish.  Here it is!

"French Lavender" WIP


I finished the cross stitch part today!
It was so easy & fast to stitch up!  Very lovely!

Here is the entire band:

And now I will need to add the buttons, stitch it up into a pocket and add the handle.  Then I can stuff it with some lavender!

NEW START! "French Lavender Pocket"

Yesterday I started a new cross stitch that I had purchased a long time ago.
It's called "French Lavender Pocket" by The Sampler Girl.

It's going to be a pocket, so I purchased a 27 count Linen Band in Natural color.  The band is 7.8 x 18 inches.  I will be folding it to make a pocket:

I am using The Gentle Art in Lavender Potpourri for the lavender flowers.  For the rest, I chose some colors I liked in DMC.

FINISHED! "Home of a Needleworker (too)"


It has been a few months since my last post... I finished this piece in June of this year, but I completely neglected to put it in my blog.  So here it is now:

"Home of a Needleworker (too)"

 2 over 2 on 28 count Linen with Crescent Colors thread.
Started November 2013
Finished June 2014

I haven't been stitching a lot since June.  I don't know why, I seem to be in a rut...
I am sure I will snap out of it soon, and get back to stitching fun!

p.s.  I didn't wash this piece because I was scared the colors would run, since it's hand dyed.  Does anyone know if I can wash this or not?
