Happy Dance !

I am doing the happy dance this morning.  My circular piece stitched from A Stitcher's Journey, which BBD calls Thistle House Sewing Box, has found its home.  Since the beautiful embossed round box in the book is no longer available, I decided to have my stitching put into one of the little round boxes that are available now.  Not big enough to be called a sewing box - I guess I'll call it a treasure box.  I'm so happy with the way it turned out.

Special thanks to Carol and Katie at Crafty Ewe
who worked and fought
to get the mat and everything in this little box,
breaking finger nails in the process,
and getting a very pleasing result.

A Stitcher's Journey

I have fallen in love with A Stitcher's Journey.  Not a surprise, as that usually happens around here when BBD comes out with something new.

I have definitely been ready for some quick and easy projects.  Here is what I've worked on over the past week or so.  Now, to turn these into something besides flat pieces of fabric with stitching on.  That's the hard part!

Anybody else stitched on anything from this book yet?
