Crayon Tinted Fruit

Every now and then, I love to do simple outline embroidery using my extensive collection of vintage iron-on transfers. I plan to start on this later today.

Gina asked me what a "Doorknocker" is. For those of you who don't understand what they are, basically, they're small pillows with ribbons or ties sewn into the top. They can be hung on doorknobs or hooks and they just add a nice homey touch to a room. Since they're small, they're easy to store and can be changed with the holidays and seasons. Heaven knows, we can't frame everything we stitch so this is a nice way to display small stitched pieces. They're easy to finish too!

If you'd like to know how to make one, visit my Kitty & Me website and click on "Tutorials".

Ah, so that's what they are! Thank you Pam - and for the idea of making little pictures into doorknockers...I have HEAPS of those unframed miniatures around!
