From the Stash

Hi To All!

Here is a picture of a little wall hanging that I started for my Mom.

She moved to assited living in November and wanted something new for her door. It has been fun to dig in the stash and come up with everything I need. Hopefully this will progress quickly as it is small :)

The pattern is from the Australian Country Threads magazine - every once in awhile they will have a folk art/old fashioned pattern that suits me.

Happy Stitching to All!

New Civil War Blocks

Hi Everyone -

A friend of mine recently sent me a new blog that Barbara Brackman is doing - a new pattern each week! You can either click on her name above or on the button on my sidebar to follow along.

I'm looking forward to using my stash - I've decided that for 2011 I'm going to be a stash girl :) Think about conserving and do the same! There is a Civil War button you can add to your own site - check it out!

Happy Stitching!

Is It Time?

Hi Everyone -

I've been thinking about the name of my blog and realized that I like some country, some primitive and lots of rustic decorating - and as I was browsing through my past posts I was seeing an eclectic mix of all three! It is so hard to find rustic patterns and stitcheries - most lean toward primitive or country. So I'm in a bind - maybe it is time to retire "And Then Theres Rustic" and give it a new name - what do you think? Or maybe just start designing rustic items? Just kidding:) do drop in and let me know what you think!

Happy Stitching!

Happy New Year!

Hi Everyone!

Happy New Year! May your 2011 be a year filled with love, laughter, and joy!

I recently discovered a Folk Art Block of the Month from Dawn Heese. You can click on the button located on the right-hand side of my blog - Folk Art BOM. So far she has done 5 blocks and each is wonderful! Check it out!

I'm looking forward to making out my 2011 project list - this year will be a year to finish up a lot of the projects that never found their way to the top of the pile in 2010!

In light of the economy, why don't you all think about doing the Folk Art BOM - it is free and a great way to use things from your stash!

Happy Stitching!
