Spring Finishes!

I made a new needlebook and pincushion set for spring from a design by Dany.  She has wonderful designs that you can buy from her blog, which is a gorgeous blog, too!  I really love her designs, you should check them out, you might, too!
Here's the inside view of the needlebook and the bottom of the pincushion.  I chose my own colors of Gentle Art Sampler threads for the stitching instead of the DMC that Dany used, and stitched it on a very light pink linen.
The other side of needlebook.
This is an ornament for my friend Melanie who collects beehives and things with beehives on them.  When I saw this pattern I knew I had to make it for her.  If you're reading this, Melanie, Happy Birthday!
The next two pictures are of two of my co-workers--Josh and Cynthia-- in their St. Patrick's Day finery. 
How fashionable!  All the rest of us were green with envy that day!
I want to say thank you to the recent followers of this blog, it makes my day when I see some one new on the list!  And thank you also for the kind comments you leave, that makes me very happy, too!

So perfect for spring! I love Dani's designs and your finishing really shows them off.

Love the beehive with that perfect satin stitching!

I agree about Dany's designs. They are such a pleasure to stitch, and you did a beautiful job with them. The designs look so pretty on the pink linen! Her blog is such an inspiration to us needleworkers.

The beehive is a beautiful gift for your friend, and the satin stitches make it even more so! I know she will enjoy it.

Your co-workers look like they had a fun day!
