First - my FNSI results:
I know I showed you pictures of Sweetwater fabric
and I said I was going to sew curtains.......but......
I didn't have enough fabric to make the style
of curtains that my daughter in law wanted :(
I did, however,
have a project that needed my attention.
2 of my grandsons needed me to replace
some of their little felt dinosaurs
that had been loved to death :)
You can read more about the dinos here.
So I cut and stitched these little guys for them.
They were super happy to have
their "Kung Fu Dino Posse" complete again!
Now for my International Hermit & Stitch Weekend result:
I finished my "America" by Little House Needleworks
It is stitched on 32ct evenweave over 1 thread.
I love to stitch super tiny crosses over 1.
It looks so compact and bold.
I changed out all the colors to what I liked
that I had on hand.
And last, but not least
some of the Father's Day fun
that I was working on:
Every year I made a special Father's Day card
for my hubby.
It's his favorite thing
and he looks forward to it more than Christmas!
You can see some of his previous cards here.
This year I went with Despicable Me :)
(I love me some Minions!!!)
Took me an entire day
to cut out those tiny blue overalls
and those goggles were tricky too!
Those are our 4 grandsons and 2 granddaughters.
He loved his card!
Now I have another year to start
planning his next card :)
I also made some mug rugs for my hubby
and our son and son in law.
I used fabrics to match their offices
and phrases that they each use
that would make them smile :)
I baked up some chocolate chip cookies for the Dad's at church.
I found these great free printable labels on the net.
Gotta love the Internet!
All in all it was a busy weekend.
We had a fabulous Father's Day with all our children
and grandchildren :)
Hope yours was lovely too!
