I was a busy stitcher in 2009!
JAN. 2009 — “DEERLY” HANKIE: A sweet Annie Oakleaves design.
FEB. 2009 — EMBROIDERED KID’S ARTWORK (Hankies): Kid drawn, Mom stitched :D.
MAR. 2009 — EMBROIDERED KID’S ARTWORK (for Nana): I don’t remember what this fabric was, but I *loved* embroidering on it! It was finished around the edges, so must’ve been a cloth napkin or something similar. It had a very tight weave, which is what I prefer for embroidery.
MAR. 2009 — MIRROR PIN-UP GIRL: I think this freebie pattern came from Needlecrafter. She turned out so sweet, just like the person for whom I stitched it.
MAR. 2009 — CRAFTSTER SWAP: I received permission from Aimee Ray to use this design for my Craftster swap partner (this was before this design had been turned into a purchaseable pattern which I did purchase when it became available). I used the “likes” from my swap partner’s list to come up with the items included in this sweet gal’s thoughts. This was my most favorite thing I ever made out of the various Craftster swaps in which I participated.
APR. 2009 — CRAFTSTER SWAP (3 Tea Towels): (a) Fan Pin-Up Girl freebie design from Needlecrafter; (b) Ray-Gun Girl design by Sublime Stitching; (c) Fruit design by Aunt Martha’s (which I bought at Hobby Lobby).
