Hi there sweet friends, nice of you to stop by!

Prim and folkart needlework designs of drab reds, browns, golds and greens are what I fancy.

Let's share stitchin, sewin, nestin, cookin, collectin, prims, critters and a lovin' mishmash of sweet life...

Saturday, May 22, 2010


Hi friends!  This was a freebie motif which made for a sweet and prim pin pillow.  It all came together so beautifully and easily, I just adore it.  Being a lover of all things prim and folky, it was a bit hard, but not that hard, to bid it farewell.  Have been wanting to incorporate a wee wool pin patch into a project, so this was a fine candidate.  When coffee dying it's a good idea to add some white jute, so if you decide to make a small like this the hanger will resemble the coffee dyed fabby.  Another surprise, I actually remembered to do this!   Seriously, linen is divine, but I could happily forever stitch on Osnaburg, anyone else out there like it?

This surprise sweetie is on the way to Pamela's home (no blog) who beads and might find a place for it ~ hmmmmmm, maybe hanging in her cherry kitchen or off her oh-so-delish spool chest:)
