A Batch of Cupcakes

I have been making cupcake pin cushions as gifts and decided I would just stitch up a few and get ahead of the game. Can you tell I love making these and sure will be doing more of them real soon.


"All Dressed Up" in formal wear
Thought the little bear would be really cute in his formal wear. Now he is ready for any white tie affair. You can't tell from the picture but his bow tie is done in a Opalescent metallic and his buttons are pearl headed pins.


"Smile"


"I Love to Stitch" with Scissor charm



"Rose Garden"




"Butterflies and Bows"





"Sweetheart"



They are all stitched on either 28 count or 32 count linen with overdyed floss. I really didn't follow the color in the chart, just picked colors I liked out of my stash.

I spent the rest of the week working on another ornament but it is slow going. I'm doing it 1 over 1 on 32 count Jobelan. With any luck and if the frogs stay away it should be done this weekend and then I'll work more on the Sampler for Maddie.
Until Next Time.....Have a Great Weekend with lots of good stitching time.
