This Past Week


We started the week by picking up my Wedding Sampler from the framers.....

It looks so much better in real life.........  I am so delighted with it and it is hanging in the dining room....


I got a bit of knitting done in odd moments......  Not sure what I am going to do with these caps....  Anyone out there know who I can give them to?


On Wednesday when Lem and I went to Greenville for physical therapy we stopped to get the column I wanted from A C Moore........... 

I think I will look into some of the granite paint for it..........  It fits and fills that spot perfectly.....

I have also been working in the attic for a couple of hours each morning......... I hope to have it organized on day this year............

I am also working on the Nativity each day............

A little here, a little there and soon you are done..........

Design Wall Monday


I am trying to clear out some almost finished things in the studio.......  I came across this dress that just needed the hand work so Saturday I finished it up..........Complete with a covered hanger and a stuffed kitty...


I just found out that a friend has a granddaughter and this is the perfect gift for her.


I saw something on Pinterest about making bags our of feed bags and such........  Lem emptied this bird seed bag on Saturday and this morning I made a tote from it.........  Only took about 30 minutes.....  I plan to put it in our closet and use it to hold things I am going to give away..............  When it is full I can drop bag and all off at Salvation Army............

Now head over to Patchwork times to see what else is happening............HERE

On the Needles Friday


Now that Jean's sweater is finished I began to finish up a few more things.......  Three scarves for Kate, two hats for Jean and seven hats for the preemie unit at the hospital. I need to pick up some ribbon today for the baby hats and then I can pass them along on Tuesday..........


To see what others are working on go to Patchwork Times..... HERE..............

Nativity Progress

One angel done but no backstitching done yet..........  I want to finish the other angel and then backstitch them at the same time............


All set up for tomorrow's stitching.........  I try to work on this for at least one hour each morning......

I already have the frame set for this piece and I have selected where I want to hang it.........Just need to stay with it till it is done........
