Foxy is finished!! Hooray!

I put off that tail for months because I knew it would be hard and it was! But I persevered! I had to redo it several times and thank goodness designer Becky Hogg gave plenty of materials. I wasn’t even close to running out. I must say I am quite pleased with myself and how it came out.

A hoop was included for framing but I think it deserves better than a hoop so will be going on the hunt for the perfect round frame to display it.

June 2020 Smalls Check In


I finally finished the stitching on the Let It Snow biscornu from Faby Reilly. It is beautiful but I did not love stitching it. I’m not going to list all the reasons why, I’m just going to enjoy that it’s done!

I’ve made several biscornus so I’m expecting this to be a cinch to finish off. Hopefully you’ll see the final project in July!

What have you stitched this month?

All things bright and beautiful


I finished the Jiffy crewel “I Love You!” Ornament. So fun!

My baby girl picked out this one to do next so I will make it for her. She loves going on a rocking horse. Whenever we go to Hobby Lobby we always must plan for 10-15 minutes to ride the rocking horsies in the foyer. They are the old fashioned plain wood kind-not fancy like this one!

I also dug out this project which needed to be finished up-just the arrow and a few border squares! How shameful I never finished it before!

I made it for my oldest but I hadn’t finished it yet when he lost his first tooth so he got a different tooth holder and I set this aside. Now it is for my number 2 son who is 5 and may lose a tooth in the next year or so. I’ll make it into a pillow for him in time for that event. Under the arrow you sew on a little pocket to hold the tooth. The design is from Waxing Moon.

Don’t forget this Friday is our last Friday of June so finish up your Smalls!! See you back then!
