Okay, here is the last photo of Hampton Court with it star spangles in place.
I put it on top of my double casket just to see how it looks.
I think it will be perfect. I want to start another side of the casket that will be a mermaid from an old pattern of Nostalgic Needle. Of course I have to find it first, although I'm pretty sure where it is.
So now what do I work on?? Something within reach of the happy chair. I picked up a butterfly wing from Summer Casket Keepsakes. I'm still on wing three (I think, it's been a while).
But the temptation to start something new was just overwhelming. So I took a look at a few things that are sitting around the sewing room. I took out the butterfly kit from Jenny Adin-Christie just to see what was the first thing that needs to be done on it.
Padding with felt is first so I cut out the felt and started sewing it down.
Then I saw a Moss Creek kit I want to do. Carpe Diem is a fish shaped etui. So I checked what needs to be done first. It is the backstitching around the edge. So I did a few stitches.
Then I saw this sweet small from With Thy Needle & Thread.
Do I have the colors I need? Well, I had enough to get started. It is stitched on 40 count.
It went really fast. So cute. I have to find the pendant thing. I have one around here somewhere. Maybe I can put it together today.
I love starting something new. I enjoyed started three new things.
