Here he is! I finished Miles from Lizzie Kate. He is so handsome, don't you think?
I had a hard time choosing the fabric to finish it. I like this one, but is a little too busy.
The original finish from Lizzie Kate was a stuffed stand up. I was not sure that mine was going to turn out that nice.
I finally chose a brown fabric and finished it "cube style".
I stitched Miles on 14 aida oatmeal using DMC floss. I made several changes on the colors.
I also made changes regarding the button embellishments. The button pack for the pilgrims is a bit pricey. To make it more affordable, I got only the most important buttons on e-bay. Took me I while to find the ones I wanted, but was worth it.
I want to finish her very soon. We will see.
Lots more going on here. I finished Brenda's magnet board.
I recycled an old frame painting it white. We got a metal sheet at Home Depot, and they were kind enough to cut it for us.
I also made the lace magnets. Grandma Maddie gave Brenda the butterfly magnets.
And we finally did it! We got a KitchenAid mixer!
Huckleberry! Now I need to make a cover for Huckleberry. I already pinned some ideas.
Another lovely thing I got.
This cute cart from Ikea is very handy, to organize my sewing stuff. When I am sewing, I just roll it to the kitchen. It makes a big difference, having everything close by.I have some other things to share, but I will save it for another post.
I wish you are enjoying your summer.
Have a wonderful week!
