Thistle Threads Small Purse

Here is a small coin purse that I stitched for a very good friend of mine. I absolutely love this Thistle Threads pattern, and will almost certainly be stitching it again.


Designer: Thistle Threads

Design: An Empty Purse



When you open it up there is this little saying:



I have another Thistle Threads design that I have had on my "to do" list for quite some time. Here is a picture of it; I saw it stitched up and loved it...


Plenty and Grace Hanging Hearts



If you are interested in a nice freebie, called Mother Is Love, you can download it from her site. The design is pictured below~It would be a great Mother's Day gift.




Mother Is Love


I had a wonderful time during my visit to Houston, TX. It was great spending a month in the warmer climate, but now that I am home I am behind on just about everything! ~ I will post about the trip another time.

Well, I hit the road again tomorrow, this time to Vermont for at least a week~

Until next time...

Your finishing is breath-taking!! I've wanted to try those hanging hearts for about two years now, but I'm afraid I'd mess up the finishing. Yours are incredible!

Wow, gorgeous finish! But I guess you had better make sure that purse is not empty :-). And I love the Plenty and Grace Hearts design.
