New threads, needle cases, beaded heart, behind in TAST

Good morning Friends ~ Boy am I ever behind in my TAST stitches.  I hope to get caught up this weekend. Here I was so gungho to start and after three pooped right out. Too much going on, gardening, helping DH with the caravan, home caring, work. I know I’ve much to learn with all the stitches so really should keep up with them. I am a procrastinator too, so that doesn’t help.

A week or so ago I created the beaded and embroidered heart below.  Still have to mount it and put it into the frame, then get it listed on Etsy. The heart itself is 2” x 2”. Overall size is 6 1/2” x 6 1/2”.

Below are my new colors of crochet thread for needle cases.  I just love these colors and hope others will too.Don’t they look yummy and spring like?

Three needle cases have already sold. Two in ecru and one in burgundy. I have a sage green one left in my Etsy shop here.

I’ve got 5 more crocheted in new colors: wood violet, river blue, silver, dusty rose, and copper mist. Now I just have to insert the felt, sew on button and crocheted flower, take pictures and get them uploaded to Etsy. Smile

That’s it for now.  I’ve got to get ready to head off to work this morning.  I need to stop for gas first and stop at the library too.

Happy Creating ~ FlowerLady Lorraine

I like the colors. Your cases are adorable! I love the heart you did. Golly you are talented. I never could learn crochet. But that was many years ago. Have a wonderful week. I must check out your etsy store.
