a day to rejoice... a season of rebirth...
Spring is upon us... we are all blessed with fresh, new beginnings...
Now... how about some projects? The first banner of the Sew Cherished Wool Banner of the Month was this little bunny banner. I was supposed to have completed it in time to enjoy for the entire Easter season... but, I just started it yesterday and finished it today... lol... hopefully the second banner will get completed a bit quicker... ;-)
Next is the completed hooking of the Antique Coverlet rug! I finished it Friday night. Since then I have added the stay stitching around the edges... but ran out of time to steam it... maybe tomorrow... it seems no matter how many days off I have, I always need "just one more". I've requested that my headstone be engraved with words "I'm not done yet"... lol ;-)
I was also the lucky winner of a Carolina Stitcher giveaway! Faye does some beautiful stitching... and she stitched up an accessory pouch as part of the giveaway.... beautiful craftsmanship and the perfect fabric choice! Love the little charm on the zipper too! Faye also added some cross stitch needles, some gorgeous linen, a couple of hanks of Victorian Sampler threads and a notepad.... thanks once again Faye! I do have a pattern picked out to try out this linen with!
Some Easter gifts arrived in my mailbox last week too! They are from Pam (who hooked the blue coverlet rug pictured in the previous post)... She sent me a very pretty insulated lunch tote (with my initial), some woolen carrots, a With Thy Needle and Thread punchneedle pattern and a cute chick notepad! Love it all Pam! I can't thank you enough!
Did I mention this little sheep yet? Betty of Primitive Betty's sent this to me "just because" a month or so ago... but I haven't been able to get a good picture of it yet... it's a punchneedle piece and his legs are sticks... love the little bell around his neck too! I have him displayed in my hallway... he makes me smile each time I walk past him! Thank you Betty!
Well... I think that about wraps things up here for now... I have so many projects planned for April... hopefully I will accomplish at least half of them...
"I'm not done yet"... lol! ;-)
Until next time... stay healthy and keep on smiling!
