Slow stitching on a Sunday...

I've been looking around for some more white stars on a white background to use for the last four Frosty designs from Melisa at PinkernPunkin Quilting, and I found some on Friday!  So yesterday I got busy tracing Block #9, "Snowball Hunt."


Meanwhile, I needed something to stitch until I found the right fabric, so I traced a Kathy Schmitz design from last year's "One Stitch at a Time" club called Sew Love.  I spent the last couple evenings stitching the yellow spool of thread.

The heart shaped vines and leaves will be in a mellow green,
and the berries (French knots) will be in a dark pink.
Pretty and seasonal, for Valentine's Day!

Very pretty stitchery. Glad you were able to find more of the backing fabric. I printed off my first frosty - for when the hexagons are done.

Oh good I am glad you found your white star fabric. I picked up the red DMC I needed at Hobby Lobby Friday. So I can finish the mitten snowman. Your new stitching is coming right along, how will you finish that one?

So glad you found the fabric that you needed. I like how you are embroidering that pretty spool and flowers. I have a couple of vintage bibs that I want to start embroidering. I will be checking in on your pieces to give me ideas. They are probably from the 60s and don't come with directions.
