I have two more boutique items ready - both bookmarks and will start another one tonight.
I also did a quick punch needle project which I'll send to a friend before school starts.
Pictures... it's time for pictures

Here's the punch needle box:
|Sunflower box, punchneedle|
I added an inscription on it for my sister. I got the idea from Ellen Chester (With my Needle), when she stitches a reproduction sampler she adds her information in block letters outside the border so it's on the fabric, but hidden in the frame.
Here's my first "harvest" from my garden.
|first beans of 2013|
Last spring I took pictures of things I'd stitched that were at my mother's house. Here's some of my older things that are around my house. Most of them pre-date digital pictures and blogs...
|Dogwood flowers, stitched on aida|
|Birds at Wheat. I had found this one in my grandmother's stash after she'd died. I finished it. Stitched on congress cloth|
|this was from a very old dimensions kit|
|I sent away for a free chart from DMC go figure it would use a million different colors. It did turn out well though|
|Angels, a Mill Hill Kit|
|Assorted pillows on the guest bed|
|Free chart I got in Cape May, NJ|
|More punchneedle boxes|
|Class at Sinsinawa - stitching over 1 thread|
|My first really big piece. Started when I had mono in grad school|
|quilt - it was fun to do, but I don't remember much else about it|
