Bloomin' While I Chill



Ah.  So.  Back to mini making!  I am trucking away at my rug....and OMG I now understand why they are so expensive to buy.  So.  Much.  Work.  I stopped the 40 count pillow for now.  Just too much on my eyes to keep at it.  It's sitting on the bar top across from the couch in my basement.  It stares at me.  We will meet again, soon....but not now.

Had a migraine yesterday so sewing was out of the question.  All is well today, so I tackled my Bonnie Lavish cymbidium orchid kit and my yellow dahlia kit that I purchased some time ago from Grandpa's Doll House.  I did a bit of painting on the orchid.  It's hard to see because I used my cell phone for the pictures.  I love my BlackBerry 10, but the camera is so-so at best.





More work on stitching the rug tomorrow.  But tonight its some wine and fiddling with my dahlia blooms!

    1. Thank you Elizabeth! I am tempted to get a kit in another colour. Kits are addictive!

  3. Nice job on the flowers :)

    I highly doubt I will ever try a stitched project in mini...would make me lose my mind. Good luck!

    1. Thank you! It's the air pressure changes that always give me a migraine. Lots of Advil!

  5. haha, I can so imagine that's something you don't want to do continuously.. the urge will present itself again, till then, wine and dahlia's sound great! Although those leaves are tiny! Great job! The orchid is lovely too, quite fiddly I'm sure ;)
