July Gifted Gorgeousness and stuff

It's GG time and here is Whoo's There
This was a giveaway win from Frances. One big hooter for ya! I'll start stitching in its twin on the other side soon.

Yesterday found me puttering around in my craftroom/bedroom looking at the pile of my unfinished finishes. I came across Hornbook Angel by the Primitive Needle. At first I planned to have this framed but yesterday I turned it into a cube..
I used fabric, ribbon from my stash. Here's a sideways look..
The fabric looks reddish here but it's really brown. It matches the ribbon at the top. The brown skinny ribbon around it is velvet. Cubes are easy to make but cutting the styrofoam is one messy job!

After finishing Salem Sisters, I made Tombstone Angel Pin Drum my evening stitch..
Designed by Stacy Nash. And the before picture..
Yup, a good bit of progress on this one.

And that will be that. Thanks for stopping in!

  4. Your stitching and cube finish look great, Shelly. I couldn't see myself attempting one as I have a "thing" about styrofoam. You know how some people can't stand fingernails scraping across a chalkboard? Well, for me, it's styrofoam that I can't stand to touch :) Weird, I know!
