I got a lot done today and made progress on other things. I've been basing these shuttles for several days now and they are almost ready to paint on or decoupage on. I haven't decided which. So many choices!

I finished the embroidery on the fairy and it's ready to sew into a pillowcase. All I have to do is put white thread in the sewing machine!

I prepared this pattern today and then later couched down the cord and stitched the filling stitches and here it is ready to take off the pattern! I can't wait to get the whole set done. I put 5 patterns of the bell on one strip. I guess I was thinking of an assembly line.

I happened to spy this fat quarter in the closet and then laid the hand-dyed lace on it. I think I'm going to have to make something out of it.

I can hardly keep my eyes open so that must be my clue to hit the sack!

  5. Gina,
    Wow, busy isn't the word for all you have been doing. Your fairy is darling! I love how your bell is done. Man, the edging is wonderful & goes great with that back ground you have it on. Thanks for sharing with all of us. Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. Hmmm... If you're having trouble deciding, deco the black shuttle and paint the other!

    Nice fairy stitching.

    I think the material would make a nice bag!
