Hi my friends, it has been a long time since I last posted, but I have been working on some "secret" projects/exchanges. So....I thought I better take a minute for a quick post and update you on my latest and greatest addition....
This is a design by one of my very, very favorite designers, The Goode Huswife, called "Three Crows". I was able to stitch this thanks to CathyB for sharing this design with me. I love blackbirds, they are so mysterious. I used the DMC threads as called for in the pattern, no changes were made which is so unlike me. I guess it's perfect the way it was planned.
I really like the mustard flavor that was used on this one with the black. I like to use off-beat colors as they add interest to the design. The "Three Crows" is going to be framed in a handmade black frame (made by yours truly, me, myself, and I). I believe I have a perfect spot in my kitchen where I can display this one.
Hooray for sunshine, it makes taking photos soooo much nicer.
I love this old, really old, worn out black velvet pincushion. It is shaped like a heart, but you aren't able to see it that well in the photo. It still has the old pins in it and some of the heads on them are interesting. I bought it last weekend at an antique store, the lady mentioned she bought it at an estate sale and it was made in the late 1800's. I had seen this pincushion in her store about two months ago, but didn't buy it, so I was very lucky it was still there for me when I went back. I guess it was meant to be for me:)
Below is another new start I am making for my cousin's first baby. I have to keep a low profile on this one because she checks out my blog and I want it to be a surprise. So, I won't be posting anymore info on this one until it is done.
Have a marvelous weekend and Happy Mother's Day to all you Mommies!!!! Thanks for visiting and as always.....Smiles
