Hooked Pillow and Pouch!

Yesterday I finished up another batch of Easter and Valentine Ornaments that I had orders for! Should have taken a picture of the numbers before I packed them all up! Guess I just wanted them in the mail so I could move on to something else! And.... that I did. Last evening I was able to work on finishing a couple of small hooked pieces that I hooked along with the Valentine Mat for Primitive Handmades Mercantile. I love pouches and pillows so I did one of each! Not bad for a beginner! I wasn't sure how to finish the edges where the hooked part meets the wool backing so I whipped a wool strip in there! Need to check with my friend Kathy at Woolfinds to see what the right way to do it is! Didn't turn out half bad for a beginner! I hand stitched both of them together and made a lining for the pouch.

Don't forget to sign up for the newsletter at Primitive Handmades Mercantile for a chance to win the awesome prizes donated by 4 of the members and keep up to date on new items being offered. Our group is growing so be sure to check it out! The winner will be drawn tomorrow morning at 11:00am!

Happy Stitching!

Thank You Marilyn from Harvest Moon Prims!

Right before Christmas I received this wonderful Tin Punched Angel and the best smelling Cranberry Chutney Scented Primitive Pudka Pods from Marilyn at Harvest Moon Primitives! I feel bad I didn't get this posted until today! It's been quite busy around here and then I pinched a nerve in my neck that put me down for several days! Not fun at all!!!! I think what did it was a day of rug hooking! We shall see what happens when I pick up the hook today! Anyway... back to Marilyn she has two Etsy shops loaded with some great primitives! You must check them out! First is her Harvest Moon Prims shop and she also has Fanciful Stitches shop which is loaded with wonderful hand work items! And.... don't forget her blog where I won the cute punched tin angel and scented pods! She has some free patterns on there too!
Thanks so much Marilyn!
