Click on this for a closeup. I started with the green zebra, worked my way around the animals then ended with the girl. My skill improved during the months that I worked on this. It is the size of a sheet of paper. Pattern from Sublime Stitching.

These are the 2 different sides of the same zippy pouch. I stitched these long ago and finally sewed the zip on. The stitcheries are from which is a favorite of mine.

A dear friend had a baby shower so I set up a station for everyone to decorate a bib. Then, I sewed them up and put snaps on them. Some of them are so cute!

I have found a new way to organize the floss I am using for each specific project. The top picture is half of a butterfly that was purchased, but duh- I was able to use a bit of plastic from the recycle bin and a hole puncher. I am now punching holes and organizing each project for on-the-go stitching!

Another pair of socks. These have no wool and can be worn in summer easily. The yarn is called Diversity- so springy feeling and fun knitting.

 These little handy needle books are perfect! I actually try to sort my needles this way- the smalls for when I'm using just 1-3 strands of floss, the just right for when I'm using 4-6 or the BIG for when the kids are embroidering. This project was so fast and easy our five year old proudly made them!
