I've been taking my time. Enjoying each stitch. Only thing is... it's half way through January, and I only just finished my Christmas pieces! lol!
Here is "Snowed In". The Stacy Nash Girl's Club from Country Sampler Quilt Shop.
Lightly stuffed with cotton and backed with the homespun that was included in the kit. It's a good size with the larger piece finishing at about 8" x 7". The smaller one is supposed to have a ribbon to be used as a hanging ornament. But, I left it off as I plan on using both of these as pillow tucks.
Next up is "All Is Calm". A needlepunch by Country Stitches.
Also lightly stuffed with cotton, this one is backed with a dark grey to black wool. When I first started buying wool for rug hooking, I would buy a lot online. The stuff I bought that I consider too thin for hooking, now makes a great backing for pinkeeps and pillows.
I'll finish this post with my stubbies... lol... my hyacinth forcing experiment looks like I needed to have them in brighter light. The poor things got to be just tall enough for the flower. No stems. They kinda look like hydrangeas... but, the aroma is absoutely heavenly hyacinth! Mixes well with the aroma of the fresh Christmas tree we still have in our living room... lol!
Until next time... stay healthy & keep on smiling!
