Tammy for all Seasons


Welcome to my day of the

I love the sweet designs of 
who designed the beautiful cross-stitch patterns 

 

who designed the adorable Pinny patterns. 


I had picked up cross-stitch again
this year by making a few ornaments
and then a cross-stitch sampler,
BUT I have Never, Ever done
needle - turn applique.

So, I have been follow Cori
for awhile and I decided to do a little
practice before hand with
Some grapes, a strawberry,


 and an Orange Marmalade jar. 
I still have a lot more lessons,
I'll just keep stitching.


After my practice, I decided
I was ready for the real challenge.
That itty, bitty, cute bird.
Not, so bad.
It took a lot of persuasion,
but I really like how she turned out.
(The lessons must have paid off, Thanks Cori)
Now for my Tammy,
Oh and of Course, IN SUMMER,
(Yes, I am channeling my inner Olaf)


 Ohh, what fun to be at the beach,
or to at least to be warm.


My Tammy and Tweet Bird Pinny
found their home upon
my sewing room shelf with some other
things I LOVE.
(Slowly my sewing space is coming together)



Pin It Now!

  16. I used to do needle turn applique Amy but it's so time consuming. So despite how much I love it I do a lot of machine applique or use wool. Maybe that's why I love your bird so much - it's just perfect! And, like you, I'm wishing for some warmer temperatures so your Summer is calling my name! blessings, marlene

  24. Olaf would be so proud of your beautiful Summer bag and pinny! Kudos to you for being able to needle turn that bird...I need to give it another try. Your sewing room looks pretty amazing and is that a Monster High doll on your shelf? I have five of them and now you make me want to go buy a shelf just so I can set them on cute jars like you did. LOL

  26. Lovely; I too am looking forward to summer - not especially because of the cold - but because I love biking and snow biking is out!! Your shelves are wonderful - such a great way to display things. Congrats on the needle-turn applique. That little bird with it's sharp points had to be a real challenge - it turned out so sweetly.

  30. Your needle turn is fantastic. I think I'm going to do fusible. You can tell I've been putting it off. I love your bag. It looks so crisp and summery. The cross stitch is absolutely wonderful. This project is like your others - a great inspiration. Thanks for participating.

  31. Needle turn is hard enough to do on a larger piece, but on something so small like your bird is really hard to do, for me at least. But you rocked it! Loving both your Tammy Bag and your Pinny.

  45. Beautiful Tammy and pinnie. Amy!! I've never cross stitched so I did struggle but I must say I am loving this new cross stitching experience. I've done very needle turn applique, so I decided to change my pinnie to embroidery. I've had fun with this blog hop...loved the challenge of trying something new!! Happy stitching, Pauline

  46. Good for you, Amy! The bag is so adorable, and your perserverance paid off on the needle-turn applique'! So, sew cute! I learned a lot from Cori's funky freezer-paper-needle-turn technique too.
