Three Whole Days

Well... two and half really... I spent the morning getting some chicken soup simmering on the stove and some brownies baking in the oven. Now will be the time I start with sewing, hooking, punching and crocheting!!! Yep... I have big creative aspirations for this three day weekend! I'll check back with you all on Monday with some progress pictures and details...

Until then... this is a picture of the Simplify pillow I made for our Winter Cheer Swap with AAPG on eBay. Rebecca Lindquist supplied some designs with the Simplify theme and we were to create a little something for our partner using any medium we were comfortable with. So, I stitched this with DMC threads on prairie cloth and added some wool pennies for the flowers.

Whether it be cold, warm, sunny, windy, rainy or snowy... enjoy your weekend!!!


  1. Sharon...I hope you get a lot accomplished! Already, the soup and brownies is a great start! (I'll be right over.) Really looking forward to seeing what you get accomplished! I am on my way to my lqs for a tracing pen. You know what for. {grin} Have a great weekend plus!

  2. So simple, yet homey and sweet!! Well done. I love all penny rug stuff.
    Enjoy your three day!

  4. Sounds like our weekend plans are similar. I love the simplify pillow. I have seen several of the simplify swap designs on some blogs. So cute. Yumm, brownies - I think I have a mix in the cupboard. Maybe tomorrow morning my house will smell like brownies...
