Tomorrow will be a busy day for me filled with cutting out wood, sanding and painting. Plus I'll be sewing a few dolls, patchwork runners, pillows and more. Orders will have to be dropped off at the post office and UPS. (I usually don't ship anything that will have to sit through a holiday at the post office or terminal).
I wanted to show y'all the crosstitch piece that I started and FINISHED in one day. I love how it turned out!! Let me tell ya, I think I have forgotten more than I thought I had. It's been at 25 years since I have stitched like this. I actually enjoyed doing it, and couldn't seem to put it down. I finally went to bed about 1:45 this morning.
Before anyone can say this....I know I cut the fabric almost too small. I am going to make it into a pinkeep and if I have to, I'll add some strips of fabric around the edges before I sew it together. Don't you love the colors???? I think it'll be even better after it's tea-dyed..... Just didn't have time to work on it today. Should I put my initials like we did back in the olden days?
This was the Fall item for today:
Loved how this turned out as well.
Grungy Pantry Towel with Handstitched Pumpkin
I love the center loop for hanging......
And in closing....I thought y'all might want to see how these bonnets look hanging on a peg....This is a shelf in my hallway and it's hard to get a picture, but I think you can get the jest of it. I love, love, love it! When I get a chance, I'm making ME a batch of them! All different colors, fabrics and sizes!
Gonna run for now.
Be back soon.
