I had such a lovely weekend with my family :)
I hope you all did too!
I finished the mug rug for my swap partner
and it's on it's way to Australia now.
I hope she likes it!
I also finished up a fun little cross stitch pillow.
"Support our Troops" by Erica Michaels
Stitched on 28ct linen over 2 threads.
I found this backing fabric out in the garage
along with some other patriotic fabrics
that I used a lot
when I was making raggedy ann dolls years ago.
This is the needle book I stitched for my Mom.
I know she'll love the Delft tile look :)
I found this needlebook kit on ebay.
It made me laugh to think
that this pattern was designed in Scotland
and it's a classic Delft tile pattern from Holland
being stitched by a woman born in Holland
who now lives in California
and it's being mailed to a woman in Germany
who married a man from Holland
that now lives in California
but is on vacation in Germany where she was born.
Makes perfect sense right?
