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.
