Quick Update

I wanted to share the photos of my finished stitching on the Blue Ribbon Sewing Box.
I had it all stitched except for the bottom of the cushion. I decided to dedicate it to my Mom and was looking for a quote to put on it. Couldn't find one I liked so I put "Mom ....a blue ribbon winner" ---thought that tied in with the name of the box. I've also put her full name on it. Now that has been taken care, I can post the photos.

These are the pieces that go on the sides of the box to hold the smalls and wonderful scrimshaw pieces in place

So, I'll be heading to the beach in a week for my finishing classes. Can't wait to get there and smell that salt air. Classes are Saturday and Sunday, but I'm going a bit early to relax, visit with friends, shop and .....stitch on some new projects! 

I also wanted to share my finished Barbara Jackson piece, The Tea Time Basket. This was an on line class through The Shining Needle Society. The pictures don't really do it justice as it was hard to shoot the basket properly, but here goes!

Don't you love this little tin I found in an antique store? It will reside in the basket.

Thanks for visiting and your twisted threads of friendship!
See you on the flip side!

    The Blue Ribbon Pieces are gorgeous. I missed out on The Tea Time Basket, really sorry I didn't make up my mind sooner on that one. Your work is exquisite. See you next week.
