2008 Stitching

Some of these are done with friends in mind,
some just to keep my hands busy
and feel productive.

Another view....I am not bragging here
Don't look at the back of them.
I am not the best stitcher out there but,
I do ENJOY doing them

I have a reason for posting them....

It is not to show off
You will have to see my next post to tell you why !!
Ecclesiastes 9:10
Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do,
do it with thy might;
for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge,
nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.
Have a great Lord's Day

Deby, these are so cute. I have discovered that when I shop now, I am reminded of different blog friends by the things that interest them.

Mrs. C said...

These are my favorite kind of kitchen towels. I received a new bundle of them for Christmas. :)

So Sweet!

Miss Paula at Gathering of Friends has planted a new interest in stitching... I have a couple of her precious pieces now.

Yours are lovely.

Mrs. Rabe said...

Your stitchery reminds me of Miss Paula as well! She is my sister in law!

I really like your tea ones!

You are so talented! I use to cross stitch and loved it and I have gotten away from it. I am going to do more sewing and stitching for the new year. (Less TV since there is nothing on to watch). Thanks for showing us your beautiful work.

They look lovely, Deby! :)

These are beautiful, Deby. You certainly aren't bragging to show us your beautiful handiwork. I think it's inspiring to see what other ladies are working on.

I love them!
Im the same way, Im not the best stitcher either but its so fun isnt it!!! Only how do you get those designs, do you draw them free hand? As thats the only way I know how to do it, I always draw and write free hand as I dont know where to find kits to buy, theres none at Michaels Craft STore here in Canada and so I dont know where else to find stitchery patterns unless on the web.

Sharon said...

Your stitching is beautiful!
I just found you lovely blog. It is nice to meet other Christian women, via the blogland.

Mrs. D said...

Deby, these are precious! Do you make your own patterns and did you crochet the borders? What wonderful wedding gifts. My daughters loved these too. Good work!

Those are really lovely, Deby! I certainly couldn't do anything like that!

Hi Deby!
Thanks for visiting my blog.

Here is your letter *C*
Visit my blog and let me know when you have your 10 things :)

(What is it about post-it-notes? hehehe, love em)

Lynn said...

These are beautiful! I, too, would like more details. Like where you find your patterns, what kind of towels you use and where you get them, etc. I've done mostly cross-stitch and needlepoint but would love to learn more about how to make these lovely towels! :)

How sweet, Deby! It is interesting how the choice of stitching patterns says a lot about a person. It looks like you have a love of home, nature, nesting, contentment and beauty. Oh, and tea, of course.

La Tea Dah said...

Deby, what a long way you've come! It doesn't seem all that long ago that you were just starting your stitching ventures. Your embroidered tea towels are beautiful! I love the way you have concentrated on red work (or blue work). And your choice of designs --- very nice. Great job! 100% perfection (backs included; I know that even without looking!).


Cathy said...

They are very pretty, Deby.

Jessica said...

Those are so pretty! I really like the hen and chicks as I am starting a rooster and hen theme in my kitchen. My daughters are just learning how to do this. Keep up the great work. God bless.

Sew Beautiful!

Your handiwork is beautiful, Deby!!! I love embroidery projects like these. I made some too - for gifts. I made none for our own use though...why is it that's usually the way..? sigh. Must. Remedy. That. :o)
