quick and easy finish


I was working hard on my stocking SAL today, but took a break this afternoon to teach a dear friend how to stitch. I have taught many different ages of people how to stitch. I started with a little girl when she was in kindergarten. She basically pulled the needle when I put it thru the holes. Then, I taught a bunch of high school girls. They basically could have cared less about learning. (it was required of them at the time) Today, I taught a dear friend who could be my mom! Well, guess who caught on & did a great job!?!?!? Yup!!! She got the idea right away.
We both sat down with our projects. I chose the Rudolph freebie by The Stitcherhood. I decided 14 ct. aida would be best for her.
She had to leave before she could finish, but I sent everything home with her. I told her I would be finishing mine tonight. At first, I was going to 'finish' it into an ornament, then I changed my mind. I decided it would be a great pin cushion, so that is how it is finished!!!!!
Now, this evening, it is back to the stocking SAL. I need to finish parts one & two.
Have a great evening & thanks for all of the comments on my recent posts. They are so appreciated!!!

Don't you love the feeling after completing a "quick stitch," Shari? Rudolph is so cute and I'm glad you have a new stitching friend. I am trying to talk my sister into getting back into stitching--she hasn't stitched since the '80s!!!

It's great that you take the time to out to show others how to stitch. I wish someone around here was interested in me showing them, my passion, lol

Your Rudolph is cute and I LOVE your Christmas Village, WOW.
You are so clever, getting some Christmas baking done already! If I was smart I would do that as well.
Thanks for your lovely comments about the colors that I used on "My Lady's Quaker", I am flattered that you asked what they are and I don't mind sharing the info at all.
The sort of mauve one is Wildflowers in color 209 Iris, the darker purple is Anchor 102, and the green is DMC variations 4045, the fabric is 32 count Belfast in color Lavender Bliss.
I thought that I must be the last one to get started so was kind of happy when you said you hadn't started yet, we may be the last two!

Debra said...

Congrats on your finish and I bet you had a lot of fun teaching your friend.

That is so sweet! My mom taught my oldest son to stitch. The very first thing he learned to stitch was a design my mom charted. Nothing major but something extra special sweet. She charted a simple I LOVE YOU with a heart. I framed it into a cork board.
