First off, I wanted to show you
the apron I just finished for my sweet friend Amy.
She needed an apron to wear for
her neighborhood 4th of July festivities.
I used this fabulous fabric by Robert Kaufman
in red, white, and navy blue.
(love love love this fabric!)
I used the Pretty Ditty Apron pattern
I also finished up my Spring Pixie by Bent Creek.
I stitched it on 28ct Summer Sky hand-dyed Jobelan
over 1 thread.
I pretty much changed all the thread colors
to suit my home
and finished it as a little pillow
using some fun fabric from Sweetwater
that was given to me by my dear friend Regena
and some large red rick rack :)
Instead of using the Mill Hill beads suggested
on the chart,
I chose to use metallic gold thread
and add some stars instead.
I love my little Spring Pixie.
Now I have to decide which Pixie to stitch next.
I have Summer, Fall and Winter to go!
