When Mdm Samm announced a new embroidery blog hop, I knew I had to participate! I love embroidery! 
Baby embroidery

This is little shirt a gift for one of my friends who has had a baby recently. I added a personal touch. The pattern was found on Pinterest. On this stitchery board by Julie are so many cute patterns for all sort of occasions.

Last blog hop I talked about searching for a new couch and the need for new pillows. The first couch has arrived and this blog hop was a good reason to start on another pillow.

New couch and a new pillow!

When the embroidery patterns arrived, Nana's chair seemed perfect for this. Adding buttons, some fabrics and a knitting basket, instead of  the mannequin next to the chair. I'm quite pleased with it :)

Thank you Debbie for sharing this pattern with us and thanks to Jane and mdm Samm for hosting and being great cheerleaders this blog hop.

:( Your photos wouldn't load...some sort of glitch this morning I suppose. However, I am sure that your projects are wonderfully creative as in the past. I am going to stop back by later today and see if the glitch 'fixed'. See ya later today, Beulah
