New Start

I know I should have finished something else
before a new start but...
sometimes a girl just has to
throw caution to the wind.


Well this little gem had me at first glance.
I think it is so sweet,
not to mention how gorgeous it will be in the new house.

So I got prepping.

I decided to needle turn my edges.
I've been in a hand stitching mood of late.
I was going to blanket stitch them on the machine
as the pattern suggested...

But decided I was going for a 'cleaner' finish.
(More work for me really)

The pattern is 3 x 3 flowers
on 12 1/2 inch squares.
I'm making mine 4 x 4.

Like I said...
more work for me.


  1. Love your blooms. The do look so nice needle turned. Hugs,xx

  2. Yes, sometimes you just can't wait! I think we all understand.
    The flowers look lovely!

  3. I enjoy having multiple projects going at the same time. Some days I want to cut, some days it 's machine work and some days I want to relax with some hand sewing. Makes for happier sewing.
    I love the fabric in your latest project. The hand applique was a good choice. Look forward to seeing the progress.


Thanks for visiting - I would love to hear from you.
