One Love-One Life

Finally , I have finished this wedding piece. I found the receipt this morning where I had bought the things for it and it was in July. I can't believe it has taken me this long, I have stitched other pieces in the meantime , though. I need to press it again and get it to the frames.

12of Hearts BOM

I'm stitching the 12 of Hearts BOM by Shell, you can find her blog here .This is the  March BOM .

And this is Jan. thru March, I'm going to look for fabric soon and try putting together what I have done so far. I've never quilted before so this is going to be an adventure. Send any tips or suggestions my way.
I also stitched on my Romantique Sampler SAL, I've finished thru part 6 and am awaiting the next part.
 I also stitched a piece for a swap I'm doing but can't show you that yet.
Now I need to finish the wedding sampler I started months ago. The thread I ran out of is here so I have to get busy on it.

Warning, quite a few pics. 
I got a comment from Parsley that Sophie wanted me to blog about her. I enjoy reading Parsley's blog about her babies and the ones she sits for,I guess I have been a bad mom for not talking about her. I'm sorry to say I don't have any recent photos of her but here are some from her birthday and a few from Christmas.
She turned a year old in November of 2010. These are a few of the things she got for her birthday.She hates to wear sweaters or anything but I keep trying.I thought the little shirt was to cute.

 This is her Christmas goodies, as you can see I bought her a sweater and found a pretty dress. She still doesn't like to wear anything, but she will let me put a sweater on her if she knows I'm taking her with me.

She looked so cute in the dress.

 This is the bed I made her, she only uses it during the day in the living room.

little while and have finally got it finished, I used the recommended threads and fabric.It needs pressing.

I purchased a frame for it,just haven't had time to get it done yet. Hopefully before long and then I'll post a pic of it framed.

I also finished this piece. I had stitched it a while back but never did the finishing. I decided to make it into a little pin pillow yesterday.The design is by My Big Toe Designs for Camp Stitchalot. I purchased a grab bag  from a online needlework store and it was in it.
