Do you need a vacation take along project?

What a great holiday week.  Saturday we enjoyed visiting with many of you who were in town for the holiday.  We enjoyed spending time with our family on July 4 - why is it food always tastes better on a holiday?  Have you noticed how yummy potato salad tastes on a holiday versus just a regular day......or hot dogs.......or watermelon.

This week we want to share several quick to stitch, great vacation take along projects.  All kits come with background fabric, wool for the applique, and backing fabric.  All finish 3 1/2" x 7".  Some kits also include buttons.

All can be displayed on stick stands (available in short, medium and tall sizes).  Stands are $4.95 each.  If you'd prefer another use, any of these could be finished as a pincushion.  Several people have commented they'd be darling finished as an eyeglass case.  Bowl fillers are popular right now - simply stitch and stuff several and arrange in your favorite bowl.  If you need a small wall hanging, stitch 4, add sashing and a border and you've got a sweet little wall hanging.

Here's our display using the sticks.
Blue Bird - includes button - $15.95
Bee Skep - includes button - $15.95
Pumpkins - includes button - $15.95
Watermelon - includes a bee button (we were so eager to finish ours we forgot to sew the bee) - $15.95
Vintage Garden - includes button - $15.95
Hare & Seek - no buttons - $12.95
Blitzen - no buttons - $12.95
