Penny Harvest

Good Morning,
I finished another WIP. I started this last October. I bought the pattern at Inspire Me Retreat and just now got it stitched. I'm thinking maybe a flatfold finish. I stitched it on cocoa linen, but the photo shows much lighter color. I love the colors in this. 
Penny Harvest by Jan @ Tree of Life Samplings. 
Thank you for putting out charts I just can't resist, lol 
Keep up the great work, Jan

Here's Penny America Jan also designed. I stitched this years ago, one of my favorites
It's trying to rain here this morning, I hope it's sunny where you live. I love rain, it gives me more time to stitch and less yard work, doh!!!!  
I've really been getting my WIP's done. I have been focusing on one at a time. I didn't realize I could finish them faster then skipping from one WIP to another, ok well I did but don't tell anyone, ha 
I've been good not to start anything, but it's killing me!!!!!

Make time to stitch today and everyday ✂️

I'm a proud finisher

Good evening!!

I have to share my project bag I made this afternoon. I absolutely love it, and it was sew easy.
I watched Vonna from The Twisted Stitcher tutorials, so all of  her instructions gets the credits. 
Sorry! I can't get a hyperlink. 
It's not perfect, but I'm sure they will get better with each one I make.
This one measures 11 x 13, perfect for my stitchy projects

I'm off for some dinner, I'm so famished, but I worked hard, haha 
I think it took me about 1-1/2 hrs from fresh start to total finish. 

I wish everyone Easter Blessings!!

Long time, No blog

Hello!! All my awesome talented stitchy friends,
I haven't shared anything since Thanksgiving. I have so many things going that I'm not making any progress on any one project. 

I did finish Stacy Nash, Colonial Homestead Pinkeep Drum

Anna and I made something for each other, for Christmas rather then give more to stitch, lol 

She sewed me this quilt bag made with blackbird design fabrics and stitched a little Just Nan mouse 

I just adore them. I have mousey sitting in my wood box keeping me company while I stitch

This is what I made Anna 
Isabella from The Primitive Hare is the designer
I found this in the 2015 Christmas issue of Punch Needle & Primitive Stitcher magazine
I packed it with sawdust. I love the smell of sawdust in a finish. I always forget to add a little lavender

I'll be back another day with some WIPs
