Welcome to my blog...

Enjoy your stay

Wednesday, March 27, 2013



I decided to join the “Stitch Me Up Embroidery” blog since I do enjoy hand embroidery.  I always have a project ready to grab to take with me for doctor appointments or road trips. 
I ordered a sample package of the Finca thread from Jane at Janes Fabrics and Quilts and I must say it is a very nice thread.  I chose a design for my project were I could use a lot of different colors from my sample package.


I personally know Cyndi from  Bee Tree Designs so I wanted to use one of her designs  as my pattern for the door stop I made.  Hopefully Spring is just around the corner so I can open the door and put my new doorstop to use.

Please visit all the other lovely stitching projects.



I hope you will be inspired by so many and as I am,
grateful for the leadership of Jane’s Fabrics and Quilts
and for Madame Samm for her brilliant ideas and
willingness to steer so many of us to be creative.
Thank you Ladies!!

Also, thanks to all that have visited and left comments.
Your comments are encouraging to all of us.

  5. Oh yay! Glad I stopped back by or I would have missed your delightful doorstop! I have a few doors that could use a stop as cute as this! (I've been using a brick...not cute...)

    1. Glad you came back too. I scheduled my post to go up automatically at midnight. Of course this did not happen. Sure glad I checked before I left for my part time job this morning. I have been using an old fashioned iron until I came up with this new doorstop.

    1. There are three bags of dry pinto beans inside this bag. So if we really get desperate for food I will have beans to fall back on. LOL

  30. I love that the door stopper has a handle - I did wonder what you used to fill it so that it'd heavy. Wonderful mod design.
