Feeling Random Friday #6: Bug and Bean Stitching


Can you believe it's December?! How did 2017 go by so quickly? Let's take a look at Bug and Bean Stitching today! Marley is a hand embroidery artist whose work is beautiful! I picked the particular picture above for a few reasons, 1) My wedding anniversary is September 10, 2011 (09/10/11), 2) That shade of blue in the background is pretty similar to what's on the walls of most of my house, and 3) If I'm not mistaken, that's a Rifle Paper Company pattern on the left. I really like her style!

You can find Marley on Instagram @bugandbeanstitching and on Facebook, You probably know that I'm a dog lover, and Bug and Bean are the names of Marley's two Corgis, who are absolutely adorable! Here are some of my favorite hoops she's stitched up:

Feeling Random Friday #5 with The Needlework Finisher


I hope that all of my stitchy friends in the United States had a terrific Thanksgiving yesterday! Today is the day known as "Black Friday" here, and it's one of the biggest shopping days of the year! This year my husband and I decided not to purchase Christmas gifts for anyone...a strangely scary yet liberating feeling. Since our pup Sidney has cancer, his treatment has taken up all of our extra money, so we will be making our gifts this year.

I was looking at Instagram to find some ideas and came across @theneedleworkfinisher, Diana Sagmoe. I tried needlework once, and I was pleased with the results. After seeing the beautiful pieces in Diana's feed, I realized it's an art I need to add more of to my stitching. You can find Diana on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest. Here are some of my favorites from her Instagram account.
