Completed stitches and an offering....**edited**

Greetings to all~~~

I know most of us are getting by in the sweltering heat....I have returned home from Cherry Grove Beach to find a parched and browned lawn....wilting flowers that only mother natures good rain could revive and temperatures exceeding 100 ( I don't want to mention the heat index!)...Like you, I am ready for the heat wave to pull back a little!

First, I must show you are a really nice freebie from Notforgotten Farms...Lori is always so kind to create these wonderful designs and share them with us....It really was a wonderfully quick stitch.
Patriotic freebie
Notforgotten Farms
32 count random coffee stained linen
DMC threads as specified


Speaking of Notforgotten Farms, I was humbled and thrilled, all at the same time when Lori contacted me saying I was one of the gals selected to model stitch for her.... Of course, I was elated!... So, more to come on this in the future...for now, I am tickled and cannot wait for my first envelope to arrive so I can begin~~~
**************************

Perhaps today I will find time in the craft room for sewing...I hope....I was digging around this morning and managed to find a few other stitches from 2011 that never did get completed into their final finish...hmmm... I see a possible new Americana basket of smalls evolving....

Falling Star Primitives and Blackbird Designs
40 ct Days Gone By linens...
Specified threads per designers..
I found these little  rustic looking tins at Hobby Lobby yesterday in the clearance bin... Of course, I snatched up the last 4 they had..... I see small stitches mounted in these darlings..They already have the rusty wire hangers....Are you envisioning like I am...?....
******

Todays offering is a large project pouch.....Fully lined with zipper pull and appliqued front...
Black and creme homespun exterior with red print lining.....
$24.00...includes shipping (US orders only...)
email me if you are interested
**this pouch is SOLD however I will take orders if you email**


I hope everyone has a most fantastic Sunday.....

Peace,

Faye

The freebie design looks wonderful all stitched up. I really like the rusty tin frames you picked up... I know you'll create something wonderful with them.
We finally got a bit of a break with the high heat and humidity... but no rain predicted for this coming week. It's getting so brown and crispy here.
