TAST - More On The Feather Stitch

Grab a snack and relax because I have loads of things to share with you today!

First, I have photos of the last 3 cellphone pouches that I made. These are complete now:

Cherubs Cellphone Pouch

These little cherubs would be so cute as a small purse for a little girl going to a wedding or even on Easter Sunday for church!

Lucky Lady Cellphone Pouch

Susan asked me what the purple heart was on the left of this design. It's a button with a cool finish on it. Almost hologram looking!

Watermelon Cellphone Pouch

I think I mentioned this while I was stitching on this project, the watermelon was a beaded pin kit from Mill Hill. I never wore it so I decided to use it as a focal point on this pouch. It's stitched on perforated paper. I took the pinback off of it and sewed it in place.

The watermelon pouch is a gift for Scott's step-mom. The Cherubs and the Lucky Lady pouch will be going to the brick & mortar store. I'll run up there this afternoon and add them to my showcase.

I have so many ideas for new projects now! I plan to take some time next week and sew up a few more purse and cellphone pouch blocks. I'm also feeling the need to make myself another purse!

The other day, my mom gave me a copy of her Victorian Trading Company catalog. I've requested their catalog many times and still have to yet to receive one! This is why my mom gave me her extra copy. Anyway, I fell in love with some of the vintage style clothing that they offer! I decided to look around online to see what other vintage inspired clothing I could find and I found this site, Premier Designs Historic Clothing. Oh my goodness! Now, I have no place to wear Victorian style tea gowns and I couldn't care less about Victorian style undergarments, but I do love the blouses that they offer! Specifically, this blouse. I will be ording this blouse for myself next week! I will be able to wear this in the Spring with the black skirt that Scott bought me for my birthday. And to go with it, I'll be making myself a Blackwork handbag. I'm sure I will be quite over-dressed for my little trips to Michaels and Borders bookstore but I don't care! I feel so cool wearing things like this! So stayed tuned for yet another Blackwork crazyquilt project!

I will be away from my computer this weekend and will return on Monday with an update on my little Spring Cellphone pouch. I expect to complete this later today but here's what it looks like at the moment:

Spring Chick Cellphone Pouch

As you can see, I used my beloved Feather Stitch again!

This is yet another one of my many variations! Being that the Feather Stitch is this week's stitch focus for Sharon's TAST Challenge, I will leave you with the charted pattern in case you'd like to give this try:

Feather and Fans

Until Monday, have a great weekend everyone!

WOW!!! What a gorgeous blouse! I'm so glad that you're going to "treat yourself" with this purchase.

I am totally in love with the cherub's, a very lovely work and I am sure it will go quickly.

I love the cherubs. :)
And the blouse, good for you, you deserve to look good.

I had several minutes of fun looking through those clothes. I found several blouses I would love to have, but not at that price, unfortunately.

Your work, as always is wonderful. If I had a little girl going to church with me on Easter Sunday, I would certainly want that pouch for her.

Love that Victorian Trading Co. website! I've put it on my favorites, so I can go and have a closer look.
