Queen of Hearts

Queen of Hearts!   Yes, I've been smitten ever since I saw these adorable designs from "Brooks Books".


With the opening of the "Alice in Wonderland" movie a couple of weeks ago, they had a sale.
Did someone use the "S" word?
I was on it!
LOL!!!

I downloaded it right away and started stitching.
I just couldn't seem to put it down.
But whew...this old age thing sure has its drawbacks.
There are a couple of tools that are a must for me.


Clip on Magnifiers.
They are fantastic. Way better than that goofy thing 
that hangs on my neck.


This wonderful battery operated flexible light.
My sewing buddy Joi, gave us all one for our retreat.
It's great for stitching on dark cloth, 
especially when using black thread.

Now I'm on to the the rest of the "cast".


:-)

Strangely enough, I've found that it's been great physical therapy too.
My thumb muscle hasn't been the same ever since I broke my wrist.
Who knew that counted cross stitch would be the key. 
Daily it seems to be getting better.
Whoo hoo!

You can check out Brooks Books Etsy site

I'm in trouble again...
I just found these guys!




Will this madness ever end!
LOL!!

Keep on Stitchin'

  2. It's not madness, it's therapy. Intense therapy, but therapy non the less. The Alice characters are cute but I love the Oz characters.

  3. Love this Queen of Hearts. I think the Wizard of Oz collection is a must!!! I have admired Brooks Books for several years but haven't gone down that rabbit hole yet...

  4. Alice In Wonderland is a favorite childhood story for me. Your Queen of Hearts is well done. I gave up on doing cross stitch because of my eyesight but so admire those that can still do those intricate designs.

  5. Wow! What a stunning cross stitch. And the last thing I thought I would see you doing at the moment! What fun designs they are. Your finished Queen looks amazing. Good luck with the rest of the collection and the new distractions.
