Painting Roses for a Friend and a Little Stitching Time


Got a little painting time in recently.  My friend Sandy had this adorable china cabinet.  She wanted a rose design painted on the drawer at the bottom.  I love that this cabinet even has a drawer!  She seemed pretty happy with the way it turned out.  That's good because if she wasn't I would have had to take the cabinet and I know that would have been a struggle ~ lol.  Below are some photos she took.



In exchange I got this beautiful perfume bottle to add to my collection that I shared with you all recently.  


Also got in some stitching time...


As I said in my last post I was considering combining some of my CQJP 13 blocks with my November calendar page.  With your encouragement I went with it.  I still have stitching to do where the seams join and need to add a backing and a binding but It works pretty good.


I have also been working on some hearts I will soon be adding to my Etsy page.  Yes, something besides jewelry.  I will be turning these into sachets that can go over a clothes hanger, on a drawer handle or in with your linens etc. to give them a fresh scent.  The brown/burgundy one is stitched and just needs backing and stuffing.  The pastel one below is nearly done.  I will be adding ribbon embroidery and some beads etc. to give it some sparkle yet.

Looks like you've been busy! I really don't think there would have been much chance of your friend not liking what you painted - your roses are beautiful.

Connie is right!!! There would have been a huge struggle over that china cabinet!! I absolutely LOVE what Connie did with the drawer!! She painted it soft & delicate, just the way I wanted it!!! She is such a talented lady and a very good friend!!! :-)
