Busy Stitching

                         For a weekend project, I stitched up this key holder to hold these keys.

These keys are very precious to me. They are actually functional and not for decoration.

They lock/unlock the cedar wardrobe in the photo above. This wardrobe was a gift from my grandfather. He gave this to me at a special occasion in my life, and he was so proud when he brought it to me. A lot of love and labor went into this wardrobe. He was a carpenter by hobby. Although, he did not build this piece,  he did restore it back into a beautiful piece of furniture. This is one of those things in which there is no price tag for it. I will treasure this forever!!!!!!

My cabinets have been installed. Now I can get myself organized.
( I think my DH is glad  his work here is done.)

This is a block of the month quilt from JoAnns Craft Store that I have started. I am on block 9.

Ok!!! I couldn't get the pic to stay rotated upright. I rotated it before uploading, but for some reason it didn't stay that way. Any suggestions?
 This great design is by Gail Pan.
My friend @ http://maisieandtheboys.blogspot.com/  let me know about them.
Thanks Marina
Check out her blog. She has stitched up some beautiful work! 

During the move into my craft studio, I have rediscovered unfinshed projects. This is one of them. My goal is to finish this one by the end of this year. I do recall why it was put aside. Every square is stitched and the background behind the lady/children is very challenging due to many color changes.

This angel was stitched in four months after the birth of my first child. It was kit by Dimensions. It has been framed and now resides on the wall in my studio.
