4 down.....many more to go~~

Friday and Saturday turned out to be productive for me....I found my creative mo-jo and set my sights on a finishing frenzy in the craft room.......I'm just not one for the Black Friday Sale-a-ramas...So, I got busy at home....

First, I wanted to make something a little different with the recent freebie that Nan of Threadwork Primitives designed......... I just added the 3 little motifs at the top and here is what I came up with...simple and prim... Thanks again Nan for all the wonderful designs you continue to give us!!!




32 ct coffee stained linen
Victorian Motto burnt red thread
Victorian Motto grass green thread
Next I wanted to make a pin keep with the recent freeibe from 123citrouille I had shown you in a recent post...I even used some old red thread I found at my moms on Thursday....No telling how old that thread is but it was strong enough to use when lacing my linen and backing fabrics.....

If you think you are seeing double on this design, you are....I had made one of these LHN ornaments for the PALS retreat back in October....Amy had posted that she got the ornament and she loved how I used jingle bells in place of the specified candy cane button....So, I decided to make this ornament in a similar fashion....Just different lace and ribbon............

Little House Needleworks
Peppermint Twist
30 ct Vintage Buttercream
specified threads

Lastly I will show you the little stocking I had found while blog surfing by hearty-craft...I love stitching up her freebies and this one was no exception!!! Quick and monochromatic....Just like I love it....And, of course I used overdyed thread~~~
36ct natural linen
Cranberry Belle Soie silk thread

So, I am headed back to the craft room......I plan on taking a peak at my much neglected BBD Anniversaries of the Heart series piece I am working on..... Or, then again, my sewing machine just might turn itself on and expect me to whip out a couple more finishes........... We will see!!
Have a great Sunday everyone!!! ((**Hugs**)) from me to you~~~~~ Faye

Berit said...

Faye, these are beautiful! YGG!

I'm not much for the sales myself; having worked more of them than I'd like to in previous years and also with the sobering news that people are trampled to death in the rush! Lately I reign in my consumerism on Black Friday.

Myra said...
