What I've Been Working On....

Above are three pieces I made for a Silver Bella swap... they are due this week.
I have been so blank about what to do!!!! I couldn't make a decision and kept pulling
stitches out and starting over.
They were to be 4 x 5... our
hostess for the swap
is going to make us little
books with 3 samplers in them,
plus surprises! We
get them on Thursday
night at Silver Bella!
Below are some things I made over the last few months that are NOT going to the Silver Bella swap.... I tend to play a little too much sometimes....
This first one is based on a tea towel that Anthropologie has out...I've given you a sneak peak in the past of this one.... I may use it in my QB5 Birds at Work and at Home book.....
Here's another based on an Anthropologie tea towel..... I just draw them off and stitch..
making a few changes... like I added the row of flowers below.... hey... that counts.
And..this was something I was considering doing for Silver Bella Sampler Swap... but nah...

gorgeous miss linda! can't wait to see your finished book! how cool - do you get it at the silver bella or do they mail it to you? i ESPECIALLY love those little birdies (precious!) Maybe you need to start a Christian Stitching Artist yahoo group - just kidding - as if u need more emails and swaps!! Your QB5 swaps are fabulous.... I was wondering if you all were taking a holiday.....with everything you have going on.... GREAT GREAT post.

All are beautiful. I need a challenge or swap to kick my creative butt in gear! These are great!

Loving ALL of your work - just gorgeous. Wish I had done the sampler swap but I still have 1 swap to finish and I want to go the quilt show Wed night... Should I? :)

Love what you selected as the keepers, but your "rejects" are pretty nice too- all of them. You can send me the house or precarious stack of teacups, if you don't want them! :)

These are so precious, so sweet and tender. I love them--and your stitches as well. Such cute ideas. I'm posting my swaps also, one at a time. But after seeing yours, I'm thinking I should have spent more time doing more stitching...It's going to be such fun seeing all.

LOVE your embroideries! You've been busy, what a great swap the Silver Bella must be!
I missed my keyboard, the laptop had a few sticky keys that made it impossible to type on! oxo
