A Weekend of Stitching

Hi all.  Thank you very much to everyone 
for their comments on the new patterns 
and to everyone who purchased them.  
The first shipment was sent 
out on Friday, so you should 
have them very soon.
* * * * * * *
It was a stitching weekend for me
and I got a few things done
and one big accomplishment.
I have a design that I started
about a year ago.  I stitched and
planned on turning it into a 
sewing roll.  It has sat on my studio
floor just staring at me all this time.
I just never seemed to have the time to give
it the attention it was going to need
and I am not like that.  I never let things
sit around.
Yesterday I just couldn't look at 
it sitting there unfinished anymore, so 
I got to work on it and put the final 
stitches in it late last night.
Here it is......
Stitched on 30ct linen with
Gentle Art threads.
The back and inside pocket are done
using stained silk matka
and the flower using scraps of 
over dyed wool.
I really like how it turned out and I am
so glad I took some time to finish it.
* * * * * * *
I also completed a pinkeep 
using my Harvest Moon design.
and an itty bitty wool pumpkin on 
a prim painted box.  
Can you tell that
I am so into the Halloween 
season?
Well, back to stitchin'.
Thanks for stopping by.
