~Just about Better~

Sorry for being absent for so long, but for the last 2 weeks 
I've been sick with a terrible sore throat and bad cough.
I was even too sick to stitch, YIKES!!!
 It's really hung on and has been tough to shake, but I'm just
about better and have been trying to catch up
on my unfinished stitching.  

I'll be listing some new stitcheries this month for TDIPT
on the 15th.  
Here's a few things I just got done.

 This is a pattern by Stacy Nash Primitives that I made into 
a Table Mat.  It's stitched on stained linen with overdyed
floss.  Then I attached it to some black wool and 
trimmed it with large black ric rac. 
I've been wanting to make this since last Fall when I saw a 
similar version on someones blog.
I'm rather pleased at how it turned out.  

See the little pumpkins above the table mat ?.
I decided to try my hand at stitching a few up in 
overdyed wool and prairie cloth and hope to add them
to the top of some round fabric boxes.
They are so much fun to make and look so 

I got the saying for this ditty bag from a Halloween
booklet by Blackbird Designs.  It's stitched on stained
prairie cloth and has a orange plaid homespun lining.

I have a few more things in the works and as soon as
they're completed I'll post some more pics.
Thanks for stopping by .

Poor Nan! I hope you are much better now. There's nothing like being too sick to do the things that bring you lots of joy and happiness...

Your handwork is always so lovely ~ wishing you good health and much needed R&R, plus a good STRONG hot toddy can't hurt. LOL!
