Everybody saw "AWWWW"!!!

My sweet friend Midge from Soggibottom is having a give-away, the sweetest little bear you've ever seen....he's 3 inches tall and comes dressed for winter!  This give-away is in honor of her birthday, so go join in and wish her lots of happy birthday wishes too!

I haven't been blogging much, I've been very busy stitching away - stitched myself right into a migraine today, lol.  Have to remember to take breaks!  Here's what I've been working on...I made a pillowcase for my brother,

And I'm working on some redwork stitcheries.

These stitcheries are from this book,

which I bought several years ago and forgot I had.  I found it the other day and as soon as I opened it, remembered why I'd had to have it!  Aren't they darling?  Maybe I should look at my books more often, lol.  I hope your stitching is going along fine too!

The Santa redwork stitchery caught my eye. I like his style.

LOL @ Sunny's post, and happy birthday Midge!

I'm glad you got your brother's pillowcase done, and I love your redwork projects - I can't embroider a stitch (never could) but at least I can "fake it" now with the embroidery machine, lol.

I love the redwork, it has such a scandinavian look to it. I guess that's why I like it so much.

Cyndi said...

Hey Allie! I really like the fabric you decided on for your brother's pillowcase...great choice. And those stitcheries... OMGosh, they are GORGEOUS! I thought at first that you had designed them! :o) They are just so, so darling! Have fun, but remember to take those breaks!

XOXO,

Cyndi

Your stitcheries are wonderful. I just started embroidering again, and had forgotten why I love it. Thank you for sharing.

Not good about the migraine, Allie-girl, hope it's all gone now.
{{{hugs}}}
Funny thing - I saw a gorgeous stitchery online the other day and wondered where it came from. Then I noticed the book the lady had used, and it's on my shelf! LOL!!
Maybe we need an afternoon of hot chocolates, Christmas cake, and all our books?! :-)
Love the reindeer redwork...and that teeny weeny bear.
Hugs

Lovely stitching Allie!

Talin's Corner said...

Lovely redwork. I have always wanted to do some redwork, but have never gotten around to it. Hopefully, I will get around to it soon.

Mary said...

I just love the Scandinavian/Northern European looking St. Nicholas - just beautiful. By the way, in Holland this morning children are waking up to see what Sinterklaas left in their shoe last night. Em received a traditional little bag of gold chocolate coins and a few other goodies :)

Mary said...

Oops - today is only the 5th...I got ahead of myself. The children in Holland will put their shoes out tonight. Em got her goodies a day early...it's not often I get accused of doing anything early - LOL.

Kelly@ Charming Chatter said...

Cute bear - and I so heart your redwork! So pretty!

Michelle said...

Your stitcheries are darling! I have the green book and the blue book just because the designs are so wonderful! I wonder where I've put them? LOL

Ivory Spring said...

Nice stitchery, Allie!!

Carrie P. said...

OH, that little deer is so sweet.
Take care, migraines are no fun.

Chris said...

Ok.....I've hunted, googled and searched. Where are we going to find this book?
From someone who lived with migraines for 25 years....a really gentle hug.

Hillbilly Tonya said...

I like the deer especially! I hope all is well, sweet Allie! All is good in Hillbilly country. :)

Mama Pea said...

Sorry about the migraine. I hate those! Your stitcheries look great! Nice work!

Wendy said...

Lovely stitcheries, I love that little reindeer! Sorry to hear about your migraines, they really are the pits. How did the pillowcase go? Is this the same one or a second one?

Shasta said...

The redwork is adorable. I think that if I looked at my old books, I would feel so guilty because they are all worthy of buying, but I haven't made many of the patterns.
