Hi Everyone -
I'm finally back - my husband and I were graciously loaned a cottage to "escape" to for a week - which we did! My oldest sister and her husband built it and were so kind to let us use it for a much needed rest. No phone, no t.v., no computer access! But I didn't go without packing some hand sewing projects so here are the latest photos!
The Christmas table runner is almost finished as you can see - I had forgotten how long it takes to hand stitch but I found it so relaxing and rewarding.
Onto my Double Stitch, as you can see I've put my four hand pieced squares together with a border and have begun to embroider a vine which will have button flowers on it.
Last but not least, I took my wool stash and began to cut out and Wonder Under the wool pieces for my autumn wall hanging. True to my form, I'm altering it - seems like I am always changing patterns - but that is the fun of sewing - you can make what you really want!
I've missed posting and hearing from all of you - drop me a line and tell me what you are working on. Thanksgiving? Christmas? Someone's birthday? I'm always interested in seeing new patterns and projects.
One more item before I go, Tammy of Treadleworks by Tammy has opened an Etsy Store and the link is: www.Treadleworksbytammy.etsy.com. Do stop over and check it out! Tammy does a wonderful job with her blog so check that out too - it is under "Blogs I Enjoy" on my main page.
Have a wonderful rest of the week!
