Ititty Bitty

I hope everyone in the US had a great 4th of July. Mine was quiet, just the way we wanted it. A cookout and a lot of stitching. Please excuse the picture. My neighbor is mowing his grass near my patio and I don't want to get dirt on it. It is a fun stitch. The silks are wonderful! The colors are beautiful. The weather is going to be in the 90's this week-end (cooler than most of you ) so I see time in the house with the A/C. I did put this little design in a box that I had. The fabric is a light blue color, not the white that the picture shows. Cheryl and I did some thrifting a couple of weeks ago. I found this darling sewing case for $20.00. I will be painting it when the weather isn't so humid. Haven't decided on the color yet. I love the shelf inside for spools of thread. So cute. The blue frog and the green frog are ceramic. These I found with Cheryl. The one with the pansies, I found in my basement while I was looking for some decorations. I bought this many years ago, while I lived in Georgia, at a craft fair. I put a small pair of scissors in it. I had totally forgotten that I had it. Please excuse the weird format. Blogger wasn't too friendly today. Thanks for all the comments on my last post. I appreciate them so much. Keep cool and safe. Until next time ..... Happy Stitching! Deborah

I like the color it is. But, I could also see it white with roses, too! Isn't the AC wonderful. Beautiful stitching.

Love that piece you are working on - beautiful colors! And your flower frogs are cool - I don't think I've ever seen ceramic ones. I think a trip to the thrift store may be in my future - when it gets cooler! Its was over 100 today and that's the forecast for tomorrow. Thank goodness for AC!

Those motifs in different colour silks is so pretty! Lovely progress so far. Cute pattern for a cute box :) I'm guessing you'll be keeping pins and needles in it? ^.^ What a find! Very cool looking sewing case. Cute ceramic frogs too.
