I'm back to hand stitching some wool pieces. I thought I better get back to getting ready for my craft fairs which are happening in the fall. I like to cut out a bunch of backgrounds at one time, finish them off and start all over again.
I know I told you these pieces were for my craft fairs but I just might have to keep this one. It looks so springy looking and I have the perfect spot for it.
I'm not finished yet it still needs the backing.
It's hard to tell but this piece is a wine color.
I just love the color. I wish I had more of this wool.
I always like having hand stitching projects around.
I usually do a little stitching every night.
It's so calming and the perfect thing to do while watching tv.
I think I'm stitching this mat in black. I love scrappy....penny rugs and quilts.
If you knew me you would be laughing because I am such a matchy matchy person but I just love scrappy. It's the perfect way to use up the small pieces of wool. I am so frugal with hand dyed wool. If a piece of wool is 1 inch by 1 inch I save it. I even save pieces smaller than that for stuffing certain pieces. I hate to see any of the wool go to waste.
I just love the flowers on this runner and the lace edging is the perfect way to finish it off.
I'm off to enjoy this beautiful sunny day.
