A Stitch in Time

You know how our type is ...... if we know we are going to have to SIT somewhere for an extended period of time, we will gather supplies so we can create while sitting. There is no way we can just be idle. Yesterday I took a friend in for a medical procedure and had a few hours to wait. So I stitched this! Not sure what I'll do with it.... I am not going to just leave it on the cloth - I have a ton of things I've stitched and put in a drawer. This is going to be a hanging or book cover. It's a design from Postmark: LA, the book done by Pam Garrison, Teresa McFayden, Rebecca Sower, Amy Hanna, Charlotte Lyons and Carolyn Peeler. I believe Pam Garrison drew it up. I love this book! I'll let ya know what I end up doing with it.

Very nice, Linda! I like the beads and buttons. Was that your idea, or part of the pattern?

LOVELY, SWEET little piece of stitchery! Looks antique, which is why I love it!

Love it, Linda! Very nice stitch work. I had ordered my book I am waiting and can hardly stand it!
Are you going to SB in November?

Oh I SOOOOO know that type! :-) I don't even head out to a restaurant (even on my Friday night "date night" with the hubbs!) without a magazine, book, or notepaper!

Your stitching is just lovely!

Hope to see you at Silver Bella! Oh boy!!!!

So, so glad to see that Postmark inspired you. I love your take on the pattern, so sweet!

Glad to hear that you're coming to Silver Bella again. Looking forward to seeing you!

I'm the same way....I can't just sit without having something to do with my hands. I like this little design....the buttons and beads add that little extra touch. I didn't know anything about that book but it looks very interesting.
