Present and Past Projects

This is a hat I've been slowly working on for a while, the Trilobite pattern from

I recently completed some doll clothes that I cut out in August 2009. These are sleep sacks that tie in the back for 16-inch baby dolls. The flannel fabric was purchased as remnants. Very sweet. The one on top has a baby Strawberry Shortcake print and the bottom one has a bright pink, tiny flower print. I hadn't sewn with bias tape before this project. It was an adventure. They turned out OK, some of the seams are not very sturdy.

This wedding cross stitching project was my big project for five or six months. The pattern is "I Thee Wed" by Blackbird Designs. The thread is hand dyed and the cloth is linen. I had it framed at the Nashville shop where I bought the supplies, The Stitching Post, and they did a great job showing me matting and framing options. The glass is UV protected, so hopefully this project will be displayed for a long time! It is personalized with my and Paul's initials, and the date of our wedding. It was on an easel near the guest book at our wedding!
