Just finished the last of the Cosmetic cases (or you could use them for your eye glasses). These will be for my ladies for the annual Christmas luncheon. Meganne is one of the ladies, so if she sees this never mind he he!


The design is from A Stitch a Half and there are about 18,000 stitches in it. I learned from the first one I posted a couple of weeks ago to make sure I had the same thread in the bobbin on the last stitch out. Love and blessings Chris

Wow Chris they look beautiful. Never count on a bad memory if you make so wonderful gifts *lol*
Was just wondering why there is a different design on your bag than in the link but now I found that they have a nice selection (like the calla too).
Greetings, Bettina

Thanks Bettina, yes I just put up the first one that comes up on the page. There a few different styles and the one I did was called Pink Sprinkles. I didn't mind the French Rose one that my link refers to as well. Love Chris

OH DARN, I logged in at the wrong time and just happened to scroll down the page and see them, but don't worry, with my memory lately I will have totally forgotten all about them by Christmas.
Though they are all so gorgeous they may stick in my mind. :-))))

Chris, these are just beautiful! The ladies are going to love them! I won't tell Meganne - shhhhh everyone! (I think she would pick the red one.) How long does it take to stitch each one? Hugs, Jan

They take about an hour or so, depending on how distracted I am by watching tele at the same time he he he! Love Chris

meganne by meganne 13 Mar 2013

Yes I like the red one, but the pink and black is hard to go passed and the pretty aqua with spots is also a winner, but then the mauve and pink is lovely, and even the yellow is nice, oh all right the blue ones are gorgeous too...........

Yes, it's always a good combination isn't it? Because the paisley fabric was the main fabric, I chose colours from that. Love Chris
