Another Rainy Day

I was hoping to get outside and plant the flowers I purchased (what seems like weeks ago).  We've had so much rain and only one day of sun in the past two weeks.
BUT...when I can't be in the garden, it's best to be finishing....

I had an cute idea and wanted to try it out, so today was the day.
I stitched up part of my "Down VA Way" design and finished it as a small pinkeep.
Backed it with coordinating wool and flipped the wool over the top to the front.
Scalloped it for a bit more interest and stitched it down in place.

All that was left was to add a few of my hand dyed pins and some of my favorite bone buttons.  So happy it all worked out, just as I had in my head and it's very small and sweet.
Measuring only about 5" tall.
Next week is my update on Primitive Handmades Mercantile and I hope to have this and a few other pieces listed.
Until next time.....happy creating!

I really like how you "re-use" your Down Virginia Way design, Nan. What a super little piece you created!

Beautiful finish Nan!
It's been dreary and rainy here too :(
Many Blessings
