Sunflower Serenade - The Smalls

If you would like to enter my latest giveaway, there is still plenty of time - please see Sunday's post "Celebrating 100 Giveaway" for details.

For those of you attending the Heart's Desire Stitch Camp in April, I just had to share the needlework smalls that are part of the teaching design! I finally had a chance to finish them up over the weekend....and I am quite pleased with how they turned out (if I do say so myself!). Accompanying the framed design ("Sunflower Serenade") is a scissor fob...and a wool based pin pillow with a place to tie on a small pair of scissors. Your kit will have all the materials and instructions needed to complete the sampler, scissor fob, and pin pillow (with the exception of framing materials and scissors). During our class, I will be covering stitching each of the pieces, the specialty stitches used, all finishing techniques, and making twisted cord...we are going to have a very fun time! If you would like to purchase a small pair of scissors specifically for this unique pin pillow, I would suggest Little Gems by Kelmscott Designs - they fit perfectly and come in a wide variety of colors.

If you are interested in attending this special Midwest event (I would LOVE to meet you!), there are still a few spots available - it is taking place April 14th - 17th at the Rock Springs 4-H campground near Junction City, KS. For more information and/or registration contact Heart's Desire via their website: or call the shop at: 316- 681-3369.
