The Lady's Cabinet

The Lady's Cabinet by Judy Odell from Just a Thought is the project I'm working on right now. It is the project I worked on during my holidays and I will keep on stitching this project in the next few days so that I can do the finishing before school starts in September! If you want to have a look at the finished cabinet click on Judy's name and you will see a blue version made by Sandi. This online class is now over but keep on checking Judy's website and message board as she has wonderful classes to offer!

I discovered Judy Odell a while ago when I was browsing the internet to find classes for finishing stitched projects.
What you need to know is that I thought I wouldn't be able to finish a project like the ones I saw on different blogs! But I really wanted to give it a try!!
Judy explains everything step by step with MANY photos! She calls it FinishVisually because you can see step by step photos of the finishing process.

The first project I stitched was The Accordion Needlebook.





Then, I stitched the Sampler Garden Casket and its accessories.




I also did the online class for the Workstation. And for the first time, I picked up my own colors!





I also used one of Judy's creation with a design by Giulia Punti Antichi for a birthday present for a friend of mine. She was turning 40 so I decided to stitch "40 ans" with her initials on one side and my initials and the year I stitched it on the other side. And it was the ideal gift with a storage for needle and threads inside this Frienship Sewing Case!





Well, you know how I started stitching what I call my "Antiques of the Future". And the Lady's Cabinet is going to be another great addition to this collection ;-)

I wish you all a wonderful summer,
Until later,
