~*Working On My List*~

Warm smiles to ya... my dear prim friends! I've been working on my list ~ my Hands On List that is. A few days ago I posted a new freebie and was so excited it about it that I put my other projects on hold to stitch it up...

I stitched on a piece of scrap linen-like fabric... not exactly sure what it is... from my collection with DMC floss (3031 and 612)... 2 over 2. For finishing, the pinkeep has been backed with a yummy brown wool and filled with woolly bits left over from my rug hooking. I then stitched on the tiny pocket to hold the embroidery scissors & trimmed the edges with hand~spun yarn and vintage buttons.

I'm really pleased with the finish. Doing quick stitch pieces are a great way to fuel the fires of creativity!

Also this weekend...

I found this wonderful pattern by Cats in the Barn. These will be finished into Santa ornies.... great for adding a little handmade garnish to a gift! I hope to finish these up today.

On my Hands On List of things I need/want/must make this week... finish a hooked candle mat, do some painting for my dear MIL, finish stitching the model for my next pattern, and design up a rug to take to the monthly hook~in this coming Saturday. What is on your list this week?

Well, guess I should get back to working on my list.
Many smiles to ya....
