Remember that the farmer and the wife on on one piece of paper....dont go crazy like I did and decide you have lost one of them!!
Now this item is donated by my friend, Susan. She found an old bag of stitching things in her closet as she was tidying. She graciously gave it to me to go through and keep anything I could use. It contained lots of goodies, some crewel work, a pattern that I kept for myself and these two lovelies.
They appear to be Duchess hoops as they have cork on the inside ring. I offered them back to Susan, as I know you can sell these on Ebay for a good price but she wanted a stitcher to have them. I cannot use a hoop as I need a magnifier so I am passing them on to a lucky reader. Thank you Susan for your donation to Saturday Stitching. I also had to get onto Susan...her stitching was lovely. She said she just got bored with it. Don't get mad at her.lol So follow the rules stated above and I will announce the winners next Saturday.
Well one thing I can say for Quarantine Stitching...you get some things done!
Here is the Farmers Wife. I left off some of the flowers as I was most interested in the chickens. I used some Lady Dot trim that I had on hand and I also used a pretty piece of fabric I purchased in the fat quarter basket at Patches and Stitches. I should have shown the back! That little bow at the top is from the same fabric. This is going to the dough bowl at Grimmwood. Sis Leta, also found some more of her stitching that she is sending to me. I may have that bowl filled up in no time.
I also worked on Christmas ornaments for the Grands. I finished Hampton's and got Kendall's almost completed.
Seth Hampton and Kendall Elizabeth.....I am trying to do them in birth order to keep things straight. Next up will be Landon Nicholas and Brock Hudson.
I got some work done on Riley's Harbor as well.
Pardon the lighting as I took this one at night!! I have most of the houses done on this side of the chart. I need to fill in the olive house. Marvin has been bored and I offered to teach him how to do my fill ins! He was not interested. Now I will get to do some boats and waves. I love houses but I have to admit, I am ready to stitch some boats for a change.
I remembered to get out April Flowers. I just put it by the bunny for a photo op. It is now by the Big Bunny on the Breakfast Bar.
I had one purchase this week. Stephanie Webb, owner of Lindy Stitches on ETSY had a quarantine sale and I downloaded this chart that was one of her market releases.
It is one of my favorite hymns. I love the font she used here...she has some unique things.
My stitchy friend , Meg, sent this to me....
Ann at Shepherd's Needle in Little Rock shared this on her shop's Facebook page.
I also saw this sweet Winnie the Pooh quote on FB this week.
What a lovely thought for this unsettling time. Winnie the Pooh is my favorite philosopher.;)
Happy Stitching.....please comment to enter the pass the stash.
