My back is yelling at me so I'm going to sit and stitch the rest of the day. Here's a sneak peek:

I need to rest up for the Expo tomorrow, ya know. I hope I can sleep tonight.

A few people have finished their Portholes and shared pics. I think Jenny finished hers first; she made a gorgeous beach bag for a friend. The wave quilting is awesome!



Peg made a wonderful table runner. Don't those colors just scream summer! [She lives in Australia.] Beautiful, Peg!

And Carrie stitched towels for her daughter - love the fabric borders! What a nifty idea, Carrie, I love them!

You all did such wonderful projects! I'm so thrilled that you liked my designs. Have a wonderful weekend, everyone - I know I will, lol!

The peek at your stitching looks beautiful!
That is so fun to see what other people have done with your portholes.

Wow, the other versions are great. I somehow missed Jenny's bag but I did see Peg's table runner. It was fun doing the portholes.

Terry said...

Your stitching looks great! So do the portholes! I have mine printed out but haven't stitched them yet (I'm hanging my head in shame)! LOL

Have fun tomorrow! :0)

Love those Port hole stitcheries.....they are on my very long to do list which I will never get to the end of because people like you keep designing wonderful things to add to it :0)

Be careful and have fun at Expo!!

Where did the summer go? I have portholes printed and at the ready, but not started. I reduced them a bit and plan to make a set of napkins for a summer table. Maybe they will be done by next summer!!

You have wonderful stitching - so small and even! Other folks are doing awesome things with your portholes...I too love the waves!

Pam McL said...

OH, ALLIE! Your stitching is beautimous--so even and straight. I am VERY impressed. You go, girl! I miss embroidering, but I just can't get into it anymore--no time. Maybe one day things will slow down again.

Rebekah said...

love all the different embroidery projects you posted! That gives me some good ideas for what to do with patterns that I embroider

Terri said...

I love the Snippets top!!
And girl you are really pretty darn good at those stitches.....I'm waiting to find the perfect fabric before I trace my portholes....
