Slow but Sure~~~

Now that all of our summer travels are behind us, I should be making faster progress on this project.  I hope you're not sick of looking at it! The deadline is getting closer, that's for sure.


With all the Satin stitch, this little worm (snake?) took forever, or at least it seemed like it. 



These flowers got finished also.  The directions say to put "your name" on the turtle 's shell. Should I?



Here's the whole thing so you can see how these pieces fit in. On to the bear and quail.... Have a good stitchy week.  It's nice to be home.

really cute-not sure I would put my initial on the turtle's back-seems like it might ruin the effect.

Where's a pic of your SBS quilt?

So cute! Maybe that's a purple caterpillar? I wouldn't do the initials on the turtle either, but maybe below the design.

Lovely flowers and oh-so-cute creatures. I thought that looked like a gorgeous purple caterpillar at first glance but if you say it's a worm who am I to argue.

Toss up on the name. The whole thing isn't finished yet, so you have some time to think about how it will look. =) It's very charming, and will be with or without the name on the turtle.

I love the vintage look of it.

Don't hold your breath on SBS, Debra....gotta finish the baby stuff first, and then there's your tempting shawl idea. But I will get to it, I promise!

It's very vintage actually as it was started in 1971 as a birth sampler for DD#2. Somehow it got put aside.... and reappeared this year, just in time for the birth of DD#2's daughter. The design was done by Julie Nixon Eisenhower; I guess when she was in her embroidery phase or something. (Although I don't think DD#2 considers herself of vintage age! But I'm getting there.)

I don't think I'd like a name on the turtle either. But the whole thing sure is cute!

This is so cute! It definitely has a 1970s feel to it. I remember that Julie Nixon Eisenhower launched herself as a needle work designer for women's magazines. There was probably also a product tie-in that I've forgotten about.

The kit maybe? Can't believe it sat around all these years waiting for me to finish it!
