I am a selfish stitcher


Purple Penguins

I have discovered I will not stitch an ornament for another if I haven't done it for myself too. Either in the past or at the same time. Above are 2 Purple Penguins from Casey Buag...Baguar...Buaginario? Damn I can't remember the name...If anyone has the newest JCS orn mag in front of them you can find it there. I stitched it some random cheap purple fabric i had around, and as you can see the fabric isn't quite square (the pattern is!) but they came out very cute anyway, and i used some tricks i learned finishing the mermaids to make the finishing look pretty darn good. One is mine, the other will be heading with me to my stitching retreat this weekend in Pigeon Forge TN.

Very cute penguins. I can understand about doing some selfish stitching. I can't remember when I really sat down and stitched something nice for myself.

Those are just tooo cute! I have a friend who is a penguin lover and she would love those. I'll have to look for the magazine. I'm working on ornaments now and there are three that my son just fell in love with and he was so upset when he found out I was giving them away. I've already started a second set to keep.
