I wanted to share a picture of one of my "faces" that I took over the holidays.
I trudged through the snow in the backyard out to the compost bin, and when I was emptying the pail, I saw this little guy staring up at me...
|Apparently, some of these transfer booklets |
came as free inserts with magazines.
|If I had a jumper or a frock today, I might consider embroidering it.|
|It says 'Monster Gift Book', but I didn't find any monsters inside.|
|Have you noticed all the different names of magazines yet?|
|As suggested in 1933, I'm considering embroidering my undies.|
|Transfer booklet - complete with stitching guide.|
|Holly Hobby Bonnie and Holly Hobby Tracey.|
|1975 - Tracey showcasing her Holly Hobby embroidery projects. |
LOVE the picture Tracey, thanks for sharing this Retro Flashback!!
p.s Love the shirt -
- your hair has changed, but your smile is still as radiant as ever.
|Titled: The Allies.|
|An odd collection of transfers ???|
|This one reminded me of both Anita and Jody because |
Anita is Dutch and Jody absolutely loves tulips.
|I wonder what this one would look like with some of the new variegated threads. I might have to try it out.|
|Because, of course, Gramma will be teaching |
dear little Scarlet how to stitch one day.
I'm not sure what I will stitch this on yet,
but I have plenty of time to decide.
|This one is going on the front of an apron.|
I can't wait to teach Scarlet how to bake cookies.
When she is old enough, we'll do &*$%@$%%& cookies.
|Perhaps all these transfers can border around the apron??|
Please send suggestions, I would love to hear your ideas.
|The look on her face depicts mine as well. |
Of all the household chores
dusting and sweeping are the two I despise most.
|This one reminds me of Scarlet's nerdy Gramma |
who always loved doing the dishes!
|YES - I love to iron too.|
Read about it here: Bonnie Loves to Iron.
|We all need a break from the household chores.|
Take the time to read. Or.. is she singing?
OK then. Do Both!
|All these embroidery transfers inspired me to set down my cross stitching and take up the embroidery needle again. Stay tuned for the small project I've got started, even I can't wait to see it when it's finished. |
I didn't happen to notice any little helpers gardening amongst collection of chores. Hmmmm... I'm going to have to take another look at the transfers to see if I missed that one or not. Either way, while I was shopping last week I came upon Cinderella gardening gloves that I may just have to go back and pick up for a little someone special so she can help her Gramma. Speaking of gardening, I fear that mine are all calling my name right now and it's a glorious day to be out in the sunshine.
While sitting at the computer one day, I heard a sound hit the window. Looked up, grabbed the camera and look what had happened.....
Kept the cat amused for quite some time.Bonnie
