Huswif Finish

Yep, I finally have a finish to show you. 
I know....seems like forever.
I stitched a little berry design and when 
I was done it said to me, "make me a huswif".
My stitches usually talk to me and tell me 
what they'd like to become and I usually
listen :D
 It was of course, right and I am quite pleased
with how it finished up.
So pleased I made two.  One to keep 
and one to sell on TDIPT next week on the
night of the 14th.  It amazes me
how fast my TDIPT postings come around.
 x x x x x x x
We also had a Spring Swap over at a wonderful
group I belong to called Samplermakers.
We answered a small questionnaire and then
we were matched up with a swap partner.
My Samplermaker sister, Jill, got me
and here's a picture of the goodies
I got in the mail the other day.
I love old sewing notions.  Jill put together
a wonderful grouping along with some
R&R linen, which I love.
This was so much fun and I just want to 
thank Jill for all my sweet notions.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend
and a very Happy Easter.

So pretty, your huswif. I wish my stitched pieces talked a little louder. I will have to tell them to speak up.

Farm Girl said...

You too, that is just wonderful, I love it your designs talk to you.
Have a lovely Weekend.

Beautiful! What a fun swap! I collect old sewing notions and I get so excited when I find old sewing baskets and tins filled to the brim with old pieces. It's so fun to dig through, just like treasure hunting. =]

Wishing you a wonderfully blessed Easter~
