Hand Work

Last fall I bought a kit from Shabby Fabrics. It's called Betsy's Closet and is adorable. My friend got one too!  I haven't done hand embroidery for YEARS and it's kind of fun to get back into it - even though my fingers hurt!!!
As I was tracing out the last 5 blocks (I had previously traced 4), I got an idea for using this pattern a bit differently (if I decide to do it again).  Oh, if only I had a little girl to sew for (ahem, like a granddaughter).

hehehe  :)

                                                  Here are photos of the first three blocks.

Well, the other blocks are calling my name! Time to get a cup of coffee and start stitching!  Until next time  . . .


  1. Awww they are so pretty!!!! Cannot wait to see this quilt finished!!!!!

  3. Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet
    effective. A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and appearance. I must say you have done a awesome job with this. Additionally, the blog loads very quick for me on Safari. Excellent Blog!
