More bits 'n' pieces!

Yet another week with very little stitching done! But at least I do have some things to show you....phew!

A few months ago I was asked by Craftseller magazine to design and make a little box that could be used by a bride as a wedding favor box. It had to be quick to stitch and not too big. Here's the box that I made and sent to them...

I can show you it because the magazine has now been published. Here's a picture of how it was presented in the magazine....

Craftseller Issue 11

While browsing through the magazine I was delighted to see fellow blogger Lori!
Here she is....

Congrats to Lori for a great write up in the mag. Pop on over to her blog and check out her amazing work. Her  toadstool cottages are sooooo adorable!

So....what have I been working on? Well, I added another alphabet chart to my website. This is a DIY type alphabet designed with males in mind, but could easily be used for any female who is handy with a paintbrush, hammer, screwdriver etc. Some of us have to be as our hubby's are useless!!! Just don't tell him I said that!

Here's the sample I stitched...

I'm not sure what I'm going to make with this, but of course, whatever it is, you'll be the first to know!

And finally, here's a sneak peek at my newest design for Tangled Threads....

All will be revealed in time...... teehee!!

For those of you who are celebrating Mother's Day today....Happy Mother's Day, I hope you are being spoilt!

Until next time...happy stitching!

Hello Rhona

I love that little box, it's so sweet!

I'm intrigued to know what your next design is but I love those greens already!

Your new design has great colours. Curious what it is!

Hippywitch said...

I saw your pretty box in Craftseller :-) Well done both of us then!

Why when I look at your new design do I think cocktail glass........might be wide of the mark or just have drink on the brain though, lol!

Love the little box - very cute! The DIY alphabet is just perfect! I'm going to have to buy that one as you've used a spanner on the R & my son Robert is training as a mechanic! Have a great week :)

Very nice, Rhona. I love the little box. It's too cute. And the colors in the sneak peek are wonderful. I love green!! Can't wait to see more. And grats on the finish. I wish I was handier around the house.
