Amazing Artist Website, Free Pattern and Not 31...Yet

For those of you who love artwork and needlework - full size and in miniature, you have GOT to pop over to Shelly's website On Dragon Wings Studio. This lady is so talented....it's beyond words. (I'm not affiliated with On Dragon Wings Studio, I just think it's worth a look-see).

Now, for the freebie - Tricia of The Embroiderer's Story - has posted a free, downloadable  pattern for a quick, fun pincushion. It's done in Flame Stitch. I don't have the wonderful threads she has made it with, but I'm sure I can find some that I love already in my stash.

Not 31.....Yet = RAK #31 is boxed up and ready to go.....just didn't get to the post office this morning as planned. Instead, had a surprise visit from two grand babies from Michigan (ages 2 and 3)! What FUN!!! #31 will meet our postman Monday.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

  3. I've always been fascinated by miniatures and dreamed of having a lovely Victorian dollhouse - alas, it never happened and now I simply don't have the room. I did 'do' a Santa house years ago, along with a sewing room themed roombox, but had to rehome them. I can see this pretty little pillow as a Christmas ornament too. Oh - and I used to do a lot of bargello (full-sized) back in the day too. Don't have any of those pieces any more either. And surprise visits from grandbabies are definitely supposed to take precedence over mailing things!!

  14. What an amazing stitch this is. I have a pattern with the flame stitch but have never tried it. Maybe I should give it a go.
