White Alphabet Sampler

This sampler I found in one of the issues of Del fil en aiguilles magazine. I really loved the look for my bedroom which will match my white blanket on the bed and a black frame to match the black wood furniture.
I used 32 ct. natural linen and DMC B5200 so it would be bright.

I also made a cute baby bib using a towel and blue cotton linen for the back.  My sewing is still not very even and straight but I try.

Jour de Lessive

This model was from an issue 37 of Creation Point de Croix Magazine.
The designer is Passion Bonheur. This item is going into my bathroom.
It is stitched on 32 count cream linen and I changed the initials to my own and my husbands.
If you look hard enough, you will find it easily on Pinterest.

My cat, Abby making herself comfortable on my pile of cut up jeans. 

Toile de Jouy

This was a gift for a young lady in my family who graduated into high school.
The model is from Les Brodeuse Parisiennes.
