Happy Valentine’s Day

I know it has been a long time since I have had anything to blog about. Finally I finished a project in time for the appropriate holiday. These little boxes are from a free pattern at Stitch Delight . Scroll down the page a bit and the link is on the right hand side.

To be truthful, I did alter the pattern a bit to get everything to stitch out the way I wanted. I thought the sides needed more stability, so added a few of rows of under stitching. Also I adjusted the sizing slightly to get the pieces to fit together better. It was a learning experience since I haven’t done as much machine embroidery as I wish. Hopefully I can have time soon to learn more about it.

I am sorry I do not post comments on everyones blogs anymore. I do read your updates. I am still working on learning new habits. When I am online I still have a terrible time getting off. Right now I control it by not getting on unless I have something I have to do like pay a bill. It takes such a long time to develop new habits.

  1. Nice visit. Happy Valentine’s.

  2. Wonderful to see your new post & those boxes are exquisite! You did such beautiful work on them.

    Know what you mean about time spent online. I have backed off more frequent blogging myself. We have so much going on at home right now & as for sewing…well the time is limited as is. It came down to whether I was going to “fish or cut bait!”

    Take care & will look forward to when you do post – it will be a treat!

  3. Love the boxes. Understand the posting and learning new habits too! Hope to see you soon.

  4. The boxes are so sweet. Very happy to see your posting!
