jack and jill~ embroidery!

i'm so excited i finally finished my jack and jill embroidery that i'd been working on for quite some time! marianne created the pattern, by slightly changing the adorable hansel and gretal pattern from doe-c-doe, to this super cute jack and jill. the moment i saw it, i fell in LOVE with it. when i asked if she minded if i stitched one up too she was so sweet and sent me the pattern! THANKS so much marianne!! now to decide how i want to use it?? hang it in a hoop, make it into a simple quilt like this or this, or maybe a cute pillow like this? what do you think?


and lookie what just arrived in my mailbox!! this super cute mini pincushion from the ever so famous susan, aka chickenfoot!! isn't it just the cutest!! the adorable little mushroom also came in the package!! THANKS so much, susan!! i LOVE them both!!


Happy Thursday!!

  4. i love the embroidery! i think it should be made into something for the wall. then you know it will be protected! (i personally worry with pillows and boys) amy's quilt is so cute, something like that would be cute in your girls room.

    I'm not sure if I ever shared with you the pics of my little pumpkin's room with the valance you made her. Your SIL left a comment on my blog recently and it made me think about that. Here are some photos:

  12. I love the simplicity of Aneela's quilt, but i think you should go for the second one b/c i think it would suit this embroidery better.. Except you need to do the patchwork in red/aqua of course :D Love it - it's so cute
    You really can't go wrong
