The last couple of weeks were quite busy with end of the school year activities. Now Brenda is home and will be another kind of busy...it will be fun!
I was able to finish some ornaments. Here they are.
The June ornament from Lizzie Kate's Flip It Stamps series. It was stitched on 14 count Aida oatmeal with DMC floss. I made several color changes.
Recently I got a couple of new patterns from Creative Poppy. This little swimming girl is part of "Happy Childhood - Seaside" from Perrette Samouiloff. I love her designs and it's such a treat to be able to buy them online and print at home. The Aida is really light blue, not white as it looks.
I made the ornament for Brenda to celebrate her swimming classes. Swimming is the only sport the doctor recommends for her, and she loves it!
Now a little bit of sewing. We were invited to the wedding of a very sweet girl.
I made this casserole carrier as her wedding gift.
Inside it, I put a Pyrex dish and a Gooseberry Patch cookbook.
And here is the picture of a little tea party we had for Brenda's birthday. It was sweet and simple, but fun. She loved it.
She got the gifts she wanted, and I made a couple of new things for her room. An origami dress garland for the bookcase, and a little bolster pillow. I love those origami dresses, they are just so cute and so girly, I will be making more soon!
That's all for now. Lots to do around here.
Have a great week!
