Sunflowers N' Crows freebie

Howdy! again so soon

I loved stitching this little freebie up and it went so fast,
just what I needed in this heat wave

You can find it over at Primitivebettys



I stitched with Gentle Arts Sampler Threads
Brandy, Mulberry, Burnt Orange, Avocado, Apple Cider, Garden Gate and Black Crow
on scrap piece 40ct linen that I coffee dyed last night and then made a pin pillow with walnut chips. Yes! I did my chores first thing this morning before I started my sewing machine

And then I got this in the mail from Brenda (no blog) we have been talking for awhile and send each other things. She seen I had started Halloween Rules and came across this and knew it was me.

Here's an up-close, it's the wooden bell pull hardware by Images Stitchery Design






Some of the tombstones say



Quilter Clara, died by a blot of fabric; Slim Sue, pulled her last thread; Fast Jane, died with thread in hand, Netty Needler, knit herself to death




It is so me, huh? I think so too
Thanks Brenda you are the bestest

Thanks for all the suggestions on commenting, I tried and I think I have it down now,
knock on wood!!!!!!




Tata for now

Your Jardin Prive is gorgeous. Now, I see what mine will look like someday. I'm doing it as a SAL and we are to be done at the end of the year.
