Hearts" Bourse and more

Our secret project was a great success! My mother asked me to thank everyone for the nice birthday wishes and comments on her works.
Today I will show you some more new designs from my St. Valentine Collection. I wanted to do it yesterday but again Blogger was not too kind to me, I hope it works better tonight.

I added three more pieces to "Hearts" sewing set: "Hearts" Bourse, "Hearts" Tape Measure Cover and "Hearts" Thimble Case.
I have wanted to try these three finishes for such a long time that I decided I'd better try them now or never! :-))It was a great pleasure to make designs for these smalls and then to assemble them.The bourse is not so small as it might look: there is enough space for whole sewing set inside it. Here are some pictures of the bourse when it is closed and open:
Here is "Hearts" Tape Measure Cover:
And here is "Hearts" Thimble Case:
The thimble case has different designs on each side:
And here is what is inside the thimble case:
I am very pleased with how these three pieces turned out. And I will sure make more designs for these finishes. They are so cute and fun to make!
Now the "Hearts" Sewing Set includes 8 items!
If you are interested in buying any of my designs, please contact me.
My e-mail address is in my Profile.

I also wanted to show a Christmas ornament which I made for February. It is The Prairie Schooler 1996 Santa. I got the leaflet from Angela, my HOE partner. Thank you Angela for the lovely design, I enjoyed stitching it. It was my so-called "car project": I always keep a project in the car to stitch during our trips. I tried to finish this design in a very simple way, no fancy trims or bows this time - PS designs call for something simple, don't they? So I stitched it on hand dyed Aida, 18 ct., made it into a soft hanging ornament with a handle made from the backing fabric and even a couple of jingle bells are tied to the handle with the threads pulled from the Aida. :-))The ornament does not have country or primitive look - I am not good at these styles - but it looks rather old-fashion:











There is no snow for the poor Santa in my yard, only Pop Corn bush is all covered with tiny "snowball":* * * * * * * * *

I want to thank Yana (Яна) for passing me another award. I really appreciate this and traditionally pass it to all my readers: you are my source of inspiration and you are my support.
Thank you everyone for dropping by and leaving comments - I love to read them!

Happy Stitching!

What an amazingly beautiful set of smalls. This collection is just fabulous and must be my favourite of all the lovely things I've seen on your blog.
I love your PS Santa too. I stitched a couple of these years ago and never did anything with them.
I feel inspired so think this will be the year mine finally get finished!
