A Couple Other Things...

I also got an order from Handcrafts Online the other day. I got the new LHN Blueberries chart with Crescent Colour threads along with the finishing kit that Mary Kathryn puts together...

LHN/CC Blueberries Kit with Finishing Kit.

I also got Geranium House by CCN and February Flip-It Bits Chart and a CC thread I was missing for Spring Violets...

While I was browsing her blog I noticed she had an Etsy shop and saw the cutest pin cushion that she had made, so I got that too! :) Here's a pic...

Mary Kathryn's Pin Cushion

I also wanted to share a pretty patchwork pillow my mom made...

She got the idea from the book Vintage Fabric Style, which I got at Jo-ann's using my 40% off coupon (I love those things!).

And last I'm almost finished with the stitching part of my strawberry. It's on 20 ct. linen over two, so it's going pretty fast.

Strawberry Social as of 2/18/07

I'm going to try to get it finished up today and then see if my mom can help me put it together (she's a much better sewer/finisher than me). Well, my 6yo is wanting to use the computer, so I'll write more later!! :)


  1. You and your mom do great work! Her patchwork pillow is beautiful, and gives me such's online to ebay for some cutters now! LOL! Thanks for the name of the book--I'll be looking for it.

  2. The LHN Blueberries will stitch up into a cute piece. Love the pillow your Mom made.

  5. Your mom's patchwork pillow is too cute! I'm expecting an order from Mary Kathryn any day which will include blueberries!

  6. Love the pillow your mom made, you should dabble in quilting it is fun!
    I love the LHN Blueberries and the Strawberry class! The strawberry is coming out cute....wish that chart was available to the public!

  7. Wowza - I still want your stash shopping budget! Yikes, I can't buy anything, so I should stay away from this blog for a while!!

  8. Looks like you had some fun mail stash come in! And I can't wait to see how you finish your strawberry. I love stitching accessories like this.

  9. Ooh some scrummy stash there!

    What a gorgeous pillow your mom made. That is just so pretty.

  10. Is the LHN blueberries a new one? I haven’t seen that one yet! Must add it to list of things I want. :D The blue fabric for finishing it is gorgeous!

    I love all of the things you have on here, the pillows are adorable.
