Home Sweet Home


I seem to have less and less to post about just lately due to the fact that Christmas is coming and a lot of what I'm doing will be for gifts.
I finished this Home Sweet Home piece by Country Cottage Needleworks a few weeks ago but have only just gotten around to taking a picture.
I used the recommended mix of Crescent Colours and DMC threads. Sorry I don't remember what fabric it is.
The scissor fob is from Mary Kathryn and the mother of pearl thread holder is by Vikki Clayton and available at her website for the grand total of 0.25 cents each!
The colours in this piece are very pink. I plan to turn it into a pillow eventually once I have found just the right fabrics.

Nice job.... I don't envy you, it is not easy to find the right fabric to an embroidery. I have one from my Au friends, and I haven't found the perfect fabric for it in the last 4 years :(

That is so pretty Margaret. Love the scissor fob.

I love your stitchery. I have a penchant for collecting scissors fobs. I've never seen a thread holder like the one you have. I'm going to check it out.

Your Home Sweet Home piece is GORGEOUS!! I love the colors and your scissors and thread are wonderful. It could be a picture in a magazine!!
I love your new header too!

Great job Margaret! I love how you photographed it with the accessories. Aren't those scissor and the fob just wonderful. I can't believe you got the little thread holder for so little. I have to go look up that site.

I know what you mean about feeling like you neglect your blog during this time of year. I have the same feelings. I can't show what I have worked on but also am not getting my own projects completed lately.

I hope you are having a wonderful Thursday in Spain!

Hugs ~

Margaret,
What a pleasure it is visiting your blog. There is always something gorgeous to feast the eyes on and this is no different. I love these simple yet eye catching designs. Yours really is beautiful. I love the beaded fob too and, like the rest of the world, I am off to look at those little threadholders - hope there are some left :>)
Love Angela
