Bent Creek Newbies

Hello Stitching Fans,
I couldn't resist sharing these cute new patterns from Bent Creek. They just arrived this week. For those of you who loved The Branch series there is a new Patriotic one starting. There was also a Christmas Branch series and of course the original Branch series. Check out our website for more information. The Happily Ever After is a very cute birth sampler that looks like it would be a quick project if you know of anyone you need a gift for. And being a stitcher I fell in love with the Stitching Row. I just love alphabet stuff and stitching what a great way to combine the two. Might just have to pick that one up and do it for a model. I have flowers and yard work on the schedule for this weekend. My flower store in town is having their spring sale so I'll get the flowers I need for my pots. Hopefully I'll still have time left over for stitching!
Have a great weekend,

Chessie and Me

Hello Crosse Stitchery fans,

I got a Chessie and Me project done that I'd like to share with you. Unfortunately it's a show and tell only, it was part of a class through our region embroiders guild meeting so it isn't for sale at this time on the open market. It was a quick project to do and the needle roll was pre-sewn so all I had to do was stitch on the cover. It's a handy little project roll I've already got my next project in it ready to stitch! It's out of season but my next one should be better. I'm going to be working on the Shepherd's Bush Liberty pin cusion and scissor fob. I'll post that when I am done!

The weather is beautiful so we hope you all have a great weekend and enjoy the outdoors!

Hello fellow stitchers.

I just finished a guild project that I think turned out adorably. Isn't it just the cutest pin cube. Women used to have these in their bathrooms to hold their dress pins. Our Paula taught this class for guild. The designer is With My Needle and the chart name is A Pair of Pin Cubes. There is a quaker one and a strawberry one. I stitched the strawberry one on 32ct fabric over one thread. I'm not sure I want to do another 'over one' project anytime very soon. It was good once I got going but took a while to get the hang of it and really enjoy it. Hope you enjoy the picture. Sarah is working on the quaker pin cube so hopefully she gets it done soon!!! (Bets anyone????) Have a great rest of your week. Tricia

Sharing Customer projects

Hello Fellow Stitchers.

Lynn L was in yesterday and we helped her finish her Easter tins from SamSarah. They turned out really cute. Lynn chose to not use the blue fabric that came with the kit so we picked a nice spring color of Weeks Dye Works fabric. She chose 20ct Guacamole by Weeks Dye Works which she really enjoyed working with. She is going to mail them out to her friends this week, what a cute gift they will receive.

Jane W also came in and shared her quilt with us that she made. She collected black and white fabric for quite a while with the intention of making a male friendly quilt. It also turned out very cute and we thought you all might enjoy seeing it too. Today is stich in day so we hope that lots of people come to socialize and stitch with us so we can goof off today!!!
