Stitch Me Up Blog Hop–Day 4

 

Schedule for Stitch me up

It is now day 4 of the Stitch Me Up Blog Hop and it is my day.  I have been shouting the praises of all the participants on this hop.  They have done some great work.

I like to thank Madame Samm for always having something for us to hop about.  Thank you to Colonial Needle for being our Sponsor and thank you to our designers, Debbie, Cyndi, and Madame Samm for the wonderful designs that we got to stitch.  Last but not least our Head Cheerleader Jane of Jane’s Fabric & Quilts.

I Have  never done hand embroidery before so this was a great opportunity to test my skills.  I found that hand embroidery was a easy take along project, on bus trips, office retreats (which I really did most of my stitching) and sitting back and watching t.v.  After seeing some of the other participants projects, I will also start to add hand embroidery to some of my quilts.

I did not make anything special with the designs, all I did was stitch them.  So here they are:

Now I enjoyed working on these and plan to finish up some others and add to a quilt.  So I also did one of me.  I had the caricature done of me at a bowling banquet and thought I would stitch me up.

I do plan to color me in.

Thank is all for me.  Please go visit the other today.
