Feeling Lazy...

...So I stitched a Lazy Daisy! I think it needs a little bumblie bee buzzing around it, don't you?
... And this is my "J"-- with a rose vine winding it's way around. It didn't come out exactly how I envisioned, but it will do.
Speaking of things coming out not quite as I envisioned-- I'm in the process of ripping out the next two squares. I'll try and show "before & after". All I can say is that lettering is very difficult for me to stitch! I'm determined to stitch it though, because the theme of the squares has special meaning to me! Stay tuned...

A little bumble bee would look great with your flower..x

Oh yes, a little bumble bee would be perfect! I really like your monogram too...the pink flowers are gorgeous. Lettering is a bit tricky...I tend to freehand it, or use a fine watersoluble pen to draw it in first. Good luck with it :)

Jill, love both the squares but I LOVE the way the J turned out! I think it looks so, so pretty!

Hi Hill!
I love your work! So perfect! I notice, after photos that my squares look crooked.. but I think, think mind yo it will come out in the end.
LOVE how you go around the rick rack and your "J"!!!! melt! The Blue Bird!

I heard of "club little house" when I first started to blog but did not know what it was all about!
Love miniatures, Amelie, BBC pride And Prejudice :)
What is the clock on your side bar for? It is very cute!

Hi Jill~
Ooo, a mystery tear out and redo! I can't wait to see what you're up to, although I'm sure it's not as bad as you think :o)

Ok, your J is seriously cute!! As is your lazy daisy. I think a bumblie bee would be great, but it's pretty darn adorable all on its own. Thanks for visiting again, your comment totally made me smile!

Hugs right back~

thanks for your sweet comment on my blog! I came over to check out your squares -- and OMG -- so darling!!!! It's hard to pick a favorite, but I think I may love the initial with the flowers the best.
