My latest project is this primitive wall pocket. My best blog buddy Robby from Glory River Primitives showed me how to make this. She's such a creative and talented gal and real a nice person too. :0) Anyway, I just finished this today and I am kind of proud of it. I've never made anything like this before and I was kind of daunted by the task but it came together pretty easy. The most time consuming part of it all was the cross stitching piece, which is part of a pattern by Carriage House Samplings. I love the design. Well, Robby has a tutorial on her website cashstrappedcrafting.blogspot.com/ if anyone wants to try their hand at making one. Have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by to take a look. ~Nan

Happy Memorial Day! I worked in the garden most of the weekend rather than sewing. It was just too beautiful to be inside. The little sewing I did do was in a lounge chair on the deck. My gardens are looking lovely. The hard work is paying off. The Irises are in full bloom and the lavender and hydrangea have the beginning of flower heads. I planted a ton of impatiens in every bed possible. They are small now but by the end of the summer they will almost connect to one another. I love gardening as much as cross stitching. Now that the hard work is done we can sit back and enjoy it. Best wishes to you and your families this Memorial Day.
I guess I'm addicted now. I liked making the last bunch of strawberries so much that I went on to make a large set. They are a little more primitive so I like them even better. This pattern is by Stacy Nash Primitives. She has some wonderful patterns. I'm a big fan. I put these in my Etsy store and they went fast. YEAH!!! Well, I thought I would post these pics on my blog for all to see. I love getting your comments too.
Happy Friday! A dear friend of mine asked me to make her some strawberry fobs. So I put together 5 with some fabric in the same shades of deep red, which is her favorite color. I filled them with crushed walnut shells and added a green wool top and a button with some waxed twine to hang them. She loves to place and hang things all around her beautiful house. I'm sure she already has a spot for these picked out. Thanks for taking a look and have a lovely weekend.

I fell in love with stitching counted cross stitch over 15 years ago and it has become a part of my every day routine. I love anything primitive, so I'm drawn to stitching in that style.
In early 2010 I started my pattern design business, Threadwork Primitives and released my first pattern.
